Dorse “Junior” Raichel, 74, Brown County

Dorse “Junior” Raichel, 74, Brown County, passed away all too soon at Indiana University Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis on June 22, 2013. By his side was his loving wife of 37 years, Linda L. (Cox) Raichel, whom he married at St. David's Episcopal Church in Bean Blossom, April 15, 1976. He was a former resident of Austin. 

Junior was born in Chavies, Ky., Oct. 29, 1938, to the late Dorse Duff and Laura (White) Raichel. He was a 1956 graduate of Austin High School and went on to serve as a private first class with the U.S. Army from 1956 - 1959. After the service, he went on to graduate first in his class with a HVAC degree from Indiana University Purdue in Indianapolis. 

Junior retired in 1989 as a manager for Cummins Engine Company in Columbus after 24 years of service. He was a member of Nashville Christian Church, past master of Columbus Daylight Masonic Lodge and the Shrine in Indianapolis. Junior was also a member of Brown County American Legion and former member of the Bass Masters. Junior enjoyed wood working, spending time with his family, teaching his grandchildren and great-grandchildren how to work with their hands, and pampering his pet poodle, "Risky".  He and his wife, Linda, took great pride in the home they built in Brown County where they enjoyed watching nature and wildlife. Junior loved antiquing with his wife and traveling the United States in their RV.  

Junior is survived by his wife; four daughters, Allenea Williams of Salem, Ore., Cathy Dille of Bloomington, Deborah (Ron) Riall of New Albany and Lesa (Kenny) Wagler of Brown County; five sons, Allen (Wanda) D. Moore II of Rock Hill, S.C., Gary (Diane) Raichel of Austin, David (Karen) C. Moore of Rock Hill, S.C., Ronald (Vicki) Raichel of Austin and David (Karen) Raichel of Hebron; twenty grandchildren; and thirteen great-grandchildren.

The Rev. L.D. Campbell will conduct a funeral service at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 27 at  Nashville Christian Church, 160 S. Van Buren St. Friends can call from 4-8 p.m. Wednesday, June 26 at Meredith–Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center, 179 E. Mulberry St. in Morgantown and from 9 a.m. until service time Thursday at the church. A Masonic service will be conducted at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home. Burial will be at Weeping Willow Cemetery in Bean Blossom with military rites presented by the Brown County American Legion honor guard.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center in Morgantown.
