Arland Lee Rininger, 54, of Wadsworth, passed away at the Wadsworth Rittman Summa Hospital on Wednesday, November 6, 2013. He was born in Akron on April 13, 1959, to Arland N. and Alyce Joy (nee Coffman) Rininger.
Arland was a genuinely good hearted, caring person who thought empathetically about the human race. He always looked for ways to help others. He was also a lover of nature and an avid outdoorsman.
Arland believed that God and spirituality were to be found in the tranquility and serenity provided to us all in the wilderness. Arland’s passions, helping others and nature, motivated him to pursue and full fill his dream of becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic and to heal people with natural homeopathic remedies. He also loved to play his guitar and sing for his close friends and family. He seemed to express himself best through music. Memories of his quick wit, shinning smile and infectious laughter will be carried forever by all of those who knew and loved him.
Arland is survived by his parents, Arland N. and Alyce Joy “Susie”; son, Robert of Seville, Arland (Shirley) of Phoenix, Arizona; daughter, Nikole (Jeremy) Lowe of Wadsworth; grandchildren, Hunter, Caeden, Thomas, Mallory, Annie Kay, Lucratica, Zoya; brothers, Dana (Ann Marie), Todd (Cherie), Bob, Keith; sister, Robyn (Brad) House; his companion and best friend, JoEl Napolean, (he was the love of her life) also to include many nieces and nephews.
