Jack Riedle died unexpectedly on February 7th, 2020 from injuries suffered in an automobile accident. Jack was born January 15, 1962 in South Bend to the late Marialyce (Matthews) and Francis A. “Frank” Riedle. He was also preceded in death by a sister, Mary Alice Firth and brother's Francis A. “Frank” Riedle, Jr., Francis Guy Riedle, and John Mathew Riedle. He is survived by two sisters, Christina O’Gorman and Kate Fahey (Mike); and four brothers, Rock Riedle, (Joan), Joseph Riedle (Mary Ellen), Martin Riedle (Donna), and Steven Riedle; and many nieces, nephews and other family members.

Jack was multi-talented and enjoyed expressing his creativity in music, art, and humor. He attended Indiana University and received an Associate’s Degree in Music. Jack was well known and loved by the Bloomington community. Jack enjoyed an eclectic life which is why he enjoyed living in Seattle and Bloomington. He often returned to his old stomping grounds to try to re-capture some of those moments. The friends that he met during his adventures were always close to his heart, no matter where he called home. Despite a life-time of health challenges, Jack was always willing to fight the battle. No matter what obstacle was thrown in front of him, he always looked forward to a hopeful and happy future. He was a warm-hearted, loving, caring man, with a heart of gold. Jack was a kind soul and will be dearly missed by friends and family alike. He will especially be missed by his brother Steven, with whom he shared a home and a life long struggle with hemophilia. Steven was integral part of supporting Jack during his many health challenges.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Monday, February 17th in the Welsheimer Family Funeral Home, 521 N. William St. The family will receive friends to celebrate Jack’s life from 2:00 p.m.until 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 16th in the funeral home.

Dear Family and Friends of Jack,

I had the great good fortune to know Jack in Seattle.

Though it has been over twenty years since I last saw Jack, having since moved to the East Coast and then to the UK, I will always be thankful that I had the opportunity to know him and it was with great sadness to hear the news of his passing.

I still have some of his drawings. They were nothing elaborate, just pen and colored ink on notepad paper, but they always brightened my day.

Jack was truly a kindred spirit to many of us who were trying to find our way in life and as another friend has written of him "While we were all running amok, there he sat in his battered chair keeping the life-blood of the house pumping". He will be missed by many, many people, myself included.

With deepest sympathy,

Laura Watts (though Jack knew me as Laura Kulik)

To the Riedle Siblings,

We little knew that morning,
God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time,

The Doyle Siblings
