RIP, Alan Reinecke

Dear Friends,

It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we inform you of the passing of Alan Reinecke.

Son of PCO founders Wayne & Sue Reinecke, former PCO Music Director from 2008-2013 and percussionist/timpanist for 30 years, Alan lost his fight with cancer at the age of 56. He is survived by his wife, Fatima; stepson Lance Corporal Shawn Mortazevi of the U.S. Marines and stepdaughter Noura Mortazevi; his parents, Wayne and Susanne Reinecke; sister and brother-in-law Janet and Wayne Kawamoto; three nieces and two nephews. Another sister, Lynn Horton, died in 1995. Alan’s influence to the orchestra and to the community is beyond words. His work was an inspiration and will continue through those he has touched. The family will be mourning privately.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the Pasadena Community Orchestra, www.pcomusic.org, Convalescent Aid Society, www.convalescentaidsociety.com or Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, www.pancan.org.
