Rev. Rodney E. Reinhart—who ministered to, among others, people with HIV/AIDS—died in early November. He was 66, according to KruegerFuneral.com .

Reinhart held a degree in English and secondary education from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. He studied theology and church history at Colgate Rochester, Bexley Hall-Crozer, the seminary consortium in Rochester, New York. After graduating with a Master's of Divinity ( M. Div. ) in 1975, Reinhart did further graduate work at The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and at Wayne State University in Detroit. Reinhart was ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church after a successful career teaching high school in Detroit.

Reinhart was ordained as a deacon at St. Cyprian's Episcopal Church in Detroit, in 1983. A year later, he was ordained as priest at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church on the campus of Detroit's Wayne State University. While at St. Andrew's Fr. Reinhart established programs to care for Vietnam veterans, university students and for people with HIV/AIDS.

Since the Bishop of Chicago invited Reinhart to come to Illinois in 2004, Reinhart served as rector of St. Clement's Church in Harvey and St. Joseph/Aidan's in Blue Island.

Reinhart has always been deeply concerned about the ways that women, gays and racial minorities are abused and mistreated in American society, as the leader of Integrity Chicago, and as the host of Faith on the Front Line on WBGX AM1570, Fr. Reinhart has often taken the message of inclusion and equality out to the world.

Reinhart and his spouse, Alan Engle, resided in Blue Island.

A memorial service will be held in Illinois at a later date.
