After college, he served as a second lieutenant in the Army and was stationed in Georgia and Washington.

As a young man, he worked at the Domino sugar plant in Locust Point. For much of his career, he was an insurance salesman. He retired in 1995.

Mr. Reiter coached lacrosse for a Catonsville parks and recreation league. He was also a sports fan and followed the old Baltimore Colts, as well as the Orioles, Ravens, Terps and Gilman teams.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. today at Our Lady of the Angels Chapel, 715 Maiden Choice Lane in Catonsville.

Reiter III of Severna Park; three daughters, Christine Krouse of Vienna, Va., Karen Reiter of Baltimore and Courtney Dunevant of Catonsville; a sister, Ann Reiter of Columbia; and three grandchildren.
