Doug Reimer, 51

Douglas Allen Reimer, 51, husband of Jaime Lynn (Henrich) Reimer, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, at Chester County Hospital after a short, but brave battle with pancreatic cancer and was surrounded by his family who poured their love over him as he went to be with the Lord.

Born on March 8, 1972 in Allentown, he was the son of the late Robert Charles Reimer and the late Nancy Jane (Blair) Mack.

Doug was a loving husband, a devoted father, and a loyal friend. He was truly a remarkable individual who touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him. He had a quiet, steady, and kind presence that made everyone around him feel safe. Doug enjoyed traveling, football, and spending time with his family. He was the rock of his family and gave everything he had to them, always a selfless person who cared more about his family’s happiness than his own. Doug worked in the banking industry for the majority of his career and was most recently an operations analyst at Computershare.

He volunteered at the Spring-Ford Youth Athletic League (SFYAL) as a baseball coach and served on the board from 2016 to 2020 as both the treasurer and tournament director. Doug also served as a poll worker at Brooke Elementary during the elections. He was a lifelong Pittsburgh Steelers fan and became a huge fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide Football program after his family lived in Alabama for seven years.

Surviving along with his wife Jaime of 21 years, are his sons Ethan Reimer and Ian Reimer; brothers Robert Reimer, husband of Wanda, and Keith Reimer, husband of Melissa; his lifelong best friend Wayne Rauch who was like a brother to him; and many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, at 12:00 p.m. at Catagnus Funeral Home (329 N. Lewis Rd., Royersford, PA 19468) with Pastor Jim Skulski officiating. The service will be preceded by visiting hours from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Doug’s honor to the Lustgarten Foundation which funds preeminent pancreatic cancer research studies through their research grants.

Doug was a great co-worker & friend of mine for so many years. He was a great person. I used to make fun of him for being so organized and for having to have everything in place. He loved my mom's Spanish cooking. I'm so sad that he has passed away so young. I wish for peace for his family. Doug, rest in peace, my friend. Great memories!!!

Prayers for Peace for this sweet family. My son was friends with Ethan while the family lived in Alabama. We loved them so much that we visited them after they moved to Pennsylvania. Thankful that we had the chance to know Doug.

Doug was like an uncle to me. With him being best friends with my father Wayne we got to see him often. I have prominent memories of going to Alabama to see Doug and family. When Doug moved back home, we used to go over almost every Sunday to watch The Walking Dead. Doug was someone who everyone could rely on and trust. Life feels very weird without him being here with us. Doug will truly be missed.
