Marc Stuart Reinsel, son of Jerry and Wilma Janson Reinsel, was born November 12, 1963 at Fort Dodge. He graduated from Webster City High School in 1982 and from Iowa Central Community College with a degree in Criminal Justice. He served in the United States Navy from 1987 to 1991, where he served as a Naval Yeoman on the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson during the Gulf War. In 1992 Marc met and fell in love with Gina Monroe. On Sept. 17, 2005, Marc and Gina were united in marriage at the Little Brown Church in Nashua and they have been inseparable partners ever since.
Marc was a hard worker throughout his life. He worked for Electrolux, primarily driving forklift; Fort Dodge Correctional Facility as a correctional officer; and for 20 years he worked for the State of Iowa as a crime investigator. Marc retired from the State of Iowa in 2018. After enjoying retired life for only a few months, he got restless and sought employment. He heard about a new company opening their doors and thought it may be an interesting opportunity so he started working in the shipping department at Prestige Farms.
Marc was a member of the American Legion Post #191 and the AFSCME union. He was a kind and very caring man, who enjoyed being with people and learning everything he could about them. He didn’t hesitate to explore ways to overcome challenges whether they were someone else’s or his own. Marc had a love for camping, (especially at the Iowa State Fair), politics, racing, every type of sport, reading the news, antiques, and was an avid collector of many things. He especially enjoyed time spent with friends and family, tinkering around his farm, catching up with the “Neighborhood Watch Crew,” vacationing at Lake Okoboji, relaxing on the patio, taking road trips and nightly car rides with Gina.
He is survived by his wife, Gina of Webster City; mother, Wilma Reinsel of Webster City; his faithful fur-companions, Allie and Maggie; sister, Shari Collins of Des Moines; brother, Jon Reinsel of Webster City; sisters-in-law, Yvonne McCormick of Webster City, Michelle (Mark) Pearson of Hubbard, and Cheri Daya of Spencer; nieces and nephews, Austin Reinsel, Tricia Collins, Holly Collins, Lindsay (Logan) Welch, Josh VanLangen, Nick Pearson, Brittany Pearson, and Anjali Daya; several great -nephews and nieces; along with many aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family members.
Marc was preceded in death by his father, Jerry Reinsel; father-in-law and mother-in-law, William and Adria Monroe; paternal and maternal grandparents; aunt, Doris Janson; and uncle, Wayne Janson.
