Dr. G. Edward Reahl, who had been chief of orthopedic surgery at Mercy Medical Center for nearly three decades and was a Navy veteran, died last Saturday of congestive heart failure at his Guilford home. He was 87.
“I met Ed 40 years ago when I was an intern at Mercy. He was a mentor at first and then a colleague. He was one of those people you always remember, and that 40 years seems just like yesterday,” said Dr. Marion C. Kowalewski, an internist and Kingsville resident.
“He loved his patients, profession, and was an icon at Mercy. Everyone knows Ed Reahl. He was the kind of guy who made a lasting impression on you.”
