Oct. 12, 1980 – April 27, 2014

Nick Reimann, 33, of Ree Heights, passed away Sunday, April 27 during a tragic plane crash near Highmore, S.D.

Nick was born Oct. 12, 1980 to Kent and Nora (Webster) Reimann. He grew up on the family ranch south of Ree Heights. Nick graduated from Miller High School in 1999. He attended Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College in Miami, Okla. He actively participated on the judging team while at NEO. Nick went on to attend Oklahoma State University where he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Ag Business in 2004.

Nick met Kyrstin Dahl while attending school and the couple wed on July 26, 2008. The couple moved back to Ree Heights where they resided on the family ranch. The couple welcomed a son, Croix McQuade on October 8, 2010 and a daughter Cannon Klein on February 29, 2012.

Nick had an intense passion for all he did, including farming and ranching, but his real love was the show cattle industry. Nick traveled the country attending livestock shows and sales, meeting new people, making friends and educating the youth on tricks and trades of the business. Nick's smile was contagious and his laugh infectious. Nick was loved by many and respected by all.

Nick's other passion was his family. He adored his two children and they adored him. He made time to teach his children to appreciate what they had, work hard for what they want, and not dwell on the past. Nick had a special talent to always see the brighter side of life. Nick's two children have a guardian angel smiling down on them and guiding them on their journey.
