Reinold Henry was born May 27, 1935 to Carl and Grace (Meyer) Keller in St. Peter. He was raised in St. Peter, graduating from St. Peter High School in 1953. He then served in the National Guard before retiring honorably in 1982. Skip was a master plumber working in the construction industry and in maintenance at the St. Peter Regional Treatment Center, retiring in July 2000. He was a skilled craftsman who enjoyed making wooden toys, having coffee with the guys, taking care of the daily “smorgasbord” for the deer and turkey, and mushroom hunting. He was a friend to all and will be dearly missed.
