Mr. John "Jack" Edward Reighard, 75 of Lewiston, Michigan died suddenly at his home on January 4, 2020. He was born in Toledo, Ohio on March 12, 1944 to the late, Edward and Rita (Houstin) Reighard.

Jack has resided in the Lewiston area for the last ten years, formerly of Maumee, Ohio. He was employed by Saint John’s Jesuit High School in Toledo for over twenty years.

He was a member of the Lewiston Fun Country Cruisers, and would help with the car shows every year. He recently worked at the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Lewiston doing maintenance. Jack will be greatly missed by both family and friends.
