Below is information about LTG Rienzi provided by Kevin Rue, USMA '77:
I met LTG Rienzi 5 years ago. He was just as described in the eulogies - a big man with a big heart; truly a giant who walked the Plain. I pulled off some obits that might be of interest to your Signal Corps Classmates as well as all in your class [USMA '69]:
FYI, the family will have an additional Memorial Service at West Point. If you know of classmates who live in the Northern NJ, Southern NY or Connecticut areas, they may pay their respects to LTG Rienzi on FRIDAY, 4 February. Funeral begins at 1330 hrs (1:30 PM) at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Chapel.
