A GOOD TEACHER HAS A PASSION FOR THE SUBJECT MATTER AND FOR THE STUDENTS THEY TEACH. STEVE HAD BOTH IN EXCESS. STEVE WAS ENTHUSIASTIC FOR WHATEVER HE WAS DOING. WHEN YOU VISITED STEVE HIS EYES WOULD LIGHT UP AND HE TRIED SO HARD TO COMMUNICATE HIS THOUGHTS TO YOU.

ON OCCASION WE WOULD SNEAK IN SOME FUN TIME AT WOODSIDE AND GUESS WHO LED THE PARADE. YES, IT WOULD BE STEVE. IT WAS THIS SPIRIT HE HELPED SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE STAFF

Our deepest condolences to the Riethmiller family. Steve was a wonderful teacher and a gentle man. Respected by students, parents, and co-workers as well, and always with a smile on his face. Our 3 children were very fortunate to have Steve as a teacher. God Bless your family and carry you through this difficult time.

Steve was "one of a kind"...there wasn't a day that I taught with him that he didn't make me smile. He was such a wonderful teacher and touched so many lives with his smile. Glad we crossed paths Steve.

I still have many fond memories of science class at Woodside with Mr. Riethmiller. He made science fun and impacted so many of us.

To Donna and family, Don and I are so sorry for your loss. Steve was one of my favorite bosses. He had a heart of gold and was respected by his team. I will alway remember the last time he stopped in at our office. It was a week before his accident and he was full of mischief. He will always have a spot in my heart.

I am so saddened by the news of Steves passing. What a joy and a blessing to have known him for even a short time. His smile was infectious. His humor and wit were not lacking. Love and prayers for his whole family. Especially his wife, Donna, who is an example to follow, in love and devotion.
