Albert J. ‘Al’ Reuter, 51

Albert J. “Al” Reuter, 51, of Woodstock, passed away on Friday, Nov. 27, 2020, at the Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington.

He was born May 14, 1969 in McHenry, the son of John A. “Jack” Reuter and Janie (Malone) Reuter. He married to Michelle Lundgren on Aug. 17, 1991.

Al was a member of Ceramic Tile and Brick Layer Workers Union Local 67. He was well known as one of the best tile men in the business. He worked for many companies during his career and had a long line of customers who would wait for Al to free up enough time to do their job. In his spare time, he enjoyed four-wheeling, snowmobiling, and spending time with good friends.

He is survived by his children, Carlie M. Reuter, Caysie L. Reuter; their mother, Michelle Reuter; a sister, Brandi (Reuter) Butenschoen; a brother, Andrew (Laura Vitek) Reuter; his parents, Jack Reuter and Jane Reuter; a niece, Kamryn Butenschoen; a nephew, Keyan Colburn; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

A memorial gathering will be arranged at a later date when COVID restrictions have been eased.
