August Reinbold, 80, passed away at his home on Sunday bringing to a close a long and active life. He was born on Dec 13, 1889 in the Egypt area north of Davenport to Mr and Mrs Andrew Reinbold. Andrew and his brother Jacob were the first Reinbolds to settle in this area coming here from Germany. August Reinbold attended the north Egypt school and started farming in 1903 at the age of 14 with his older brother Andrew. His mother was widowed when he was three years old. He and May Willis were married Nov 26, 1915 in Davenport and celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary on Nov 7, 1965 with a reception for friends and relatives. The couple farmed at Egypt until 1946 when they presumably retired and moved to town, turning the farm over to their sons. Since that time Gus carved a whole new career for himself. Never one to be idle he became interested in soil conservation and opened the Davenport Seed Company producing and retailing improved strains of grass seed. He was a leader in Eastern Washington in the techniques of establishing grass for soil conservation, hay, pasture and seed production. He was instrumental in organizing the Davenport-Reardan Soil and Water Conservation District in 1944 and was one of the district's original supervisors serving from 1944 to 1951. In 1949 he was the first farmer in the State to receive Governor Arthur B Langley's Special Citation for leadership in soil conservation activities. Gus Reinbold was the first Davenport-Reardan district honor conservation farmer in 1953. In 1953 he received the Washington State Junior Chamber of Commerce Special Service Award for outstanding contributions to soil conservation. He had recently been working toward getting the Memoirs of the Reinbold Family printed and just last week finished taping his life story. At the time of his death he was also still actively engaged in the seed business. He was active in all phases of community life. He was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, the Davenport Lions Club, the Davenport Chamber of Commerce, the IOOF Lodge, North Star Grange, held a life membership in the Washington State Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts and was an honorary member of the Future Farmers of America. Funeral services will be held Friday at 2 p.m. at the Zion Lutheran Church with Pastor Stanley Williamsen officiating. Interment will be at the Egypt Cemetery.
