In Memoriam: Todd Reigle

Todd J. Reigle, 56, a longtime SABR member from Des Peres, Missouri, whose baseball artwork was featured on the cover of The National Pastime #16 in 1996, died on Wednesday, October 31, 2012, due to complications from cancer.

Originally from Trenton, Illinois, Todd graduated from Wesclin High School and McKendree College in 1978 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. He was a graphic designer and illustrator working on campaigns for Anheuser-Busch, among others. He also created fine art, most particularly art of old-time baseball. He was commissioned by Upper Deck to do a series of baseball cards entitled “All Time Heroes of Baseball,” and his work “Frisch, Medwick & Landis – ’34 Series” is featured in the permanent collection of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. His most recent work and passion was abstract wood sculpture which has been exhibited and sold in many galleries.

He is survived by his wife, Bonnie Murray; son Cameron Ketrow; mother Carol Reigle; siblings Timothy Reigle, Carolyn Turner (Mike) and Clare Sedlacek; and many nieces and nephews.

Contributions in his memory may be made to the Humane Society of Missouri. A celebration of his life will be scheduled later this year.
