Mr. Rhinehart was a native and former resident of Mobile, AL and had resided in Canoe, AL since 1981. Daddy has always taught us to love God, family, country, and to respect other people. He was an avid golfer, fisherman, woodworker and our ultimate repairman for materialistic or life lessons. He was a great daddy, husband, and the most awesome granddaddy. In respect to our life lesson of loving this country he instilled pride and love for this freedom that he fought for in the Vietnam War. He served abroad land and sea for 20 years. Daddy was a loyal Alabama football fan, we would say “Rest in Peace Daddy” but he would say “ROLL TIDE”. He was a member of the Unity Baptist Church.

He is preceded in death by his father, Cecil Rhinehart and one sister, Janet Rhinehart Carlton.

He is survived by his mother, Adelene “Red” Wooten Rhinehart of Canoe, AL; wife of 53 years, Joyce Rhinehart of Canoe, AL; one son, Sean (Melissa) Rhinehart of Canoe, AL; two daughters, Theresa (Leo) Collins of Destin, FL and Tina (David) Morris of Perdido, AL; one brother, Stephen Scott Rhinehart of Saraland, AL; one brother-in-law, Clarence Carlton of Canoe, AL; and seven grandchildren, Cortney Morris, Destany Morris, Lauren Collins Bonertz, Logan Collins, Devon Rhinehart, Wyatt Rhinehart and Reba Rhinehart.

Funeral services were held Friday, May 24, 2019, at the Petty-Eastside Chapel Funeral Home with Rev. Josh Long officiating.

Burial was at the Oak Hill Cemetery.

Pallbearers were Scott Rhinehart, Sammy Singleton, Tony Wooten, Brandon Carlton, Bobby Wooten and Logan Collins.

Honorary pallbearers were Clarence Carlton, Wayne Tucker, Larry Wooten, Devon Rhinehart and Wyatt Rhinehart.
