Jack Charles "Doc" Weinrich, D.D.S., 84, of Greenfield, Ohio, passed away unexpectedly after a brief illness on Friday, Nov. 20, 2009 at Adena Regional Medical Center.
He was born August 13, 1925, in Chillicothe, Ohio, the son of Fred Charles "Fritz" and Mildred Louise Thornton Weinrich. He spent his childhood years in Chillicothe.
On Sept. 1, 1950, he married Ruth Eileen Kruger, who preceded him in death on Dec. 22, 1990. Also preceding him in death are his brother Lancer Richard and both parents.
Survivors include his very special friend, Janet Sitterle; two daughters and sons-in-law, Krista Sue and Judson Thompson of Greenfield and Teresa Ann and Clement Riggs of Glenville, W. Va.; seven grandchildren, Kristen (Roger) Jenkins, Kisha Riggs, Curtis Riggs, Keith Weinrich, Lisa Thompson, William "Bill" (Kendra) Barnes, Suzanne (Ben) Boedeker; and nine great-grandchildren. He is also survived by two brothers-in-law, Raymond (Mary) Kruger of Londonderry and Larry (Elizabeth) Kruger of McArthur; and several nieces and nephews.
He served in the United States Army during World War II, and his family thanks him for that service. He graduated from Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 1951 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. First working at the VA Hospital in Chillicothe, he and his bride later traveled Ohio looking for the perfect place to open a general dental practice. He retired after 52 years of serving the community of Greenfield, which he called home. He was a member of the First United Methodist Church, the Ohio Dental Association, Rehwenkel Dental Society, the Concerned Veterans of Greenfield, Bainbridge Historical Society, F. & A.M. Scioto Lodge No. 6, Royal Arch Masons Hillsboro Chapter No. 40, The American Legion, National Rifle Association, The Ohio Gun Collector Association, and Fayette County Fish & Game Association. He was a life member of the American Dental Association and the Pierre Fauchard Academy, an international honor dental organization, and was a member of the Greenfield Rotary for over 50 years, receiving the Paul Harris Fellowship Award.
Jack was a very strong but quiet man, a real gentleman's gentleman. He had many passions; first and foremost were God and his family. He loved his work and his patients. It was a hard decision when his health forced him to retire from his life's work. He always kept up with new innovations in the field by attending classes to retain his license. He would mention how the technology had surely passed him by. He loved the Ohio State Buckeyes and several other teams, and weekends were spent rooting for them. He loved movies and enjoyed attending and collecting them; John Wayne was his favorite. Another very strong passion of his professional life since his retirement was the Dr. John Harris Dental Museum in Bainbridge. He spent many hours to make the Cradle of Dental Education a museum that Bainbridge could be proud of. Because of his love of that little stone building, the family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Jack's memory to the Bainbridge Historical Society, P.O. Box 424, Bainbridge, Ohio 45612.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2009 at Anderson-Strueve Funeral Home in Greenfield. Steven Wise will officiation, and burial will follow in Londonderry Friends Cemetery in Londonderry, Ohio. Friends may call at the funeral home 4-8 p.m. Tuesday, with a Masonic Service at 8 p.m. followed by a Veterans Appreciation Service.
