TENANTS HARBOR - Jeffrey (Jeff) Michael Riedl, 72, died peacefully at home in Tenants Harbor, Thursday, October 1, 2020, following complications from a stroke.

Jeff was born to George & Louise Riedl on January 18, 1948, in Paterson, NJ, and grew up in Tenafly, NJ. Jeff played varsity basketball and football at Tenafly High School, helping to achieve the football state championship during his tenure. His passion for football followed him to Cornell University where he played Tight End for the Big Red and was active with his fraternity, Delta Upsilon. After graduating from Cornell in 1970 with a degree in Sociology, and St. John’s Law School in 1973, Jeff began his 33-year legal career as a successful trial attorney in Ridgewood, NJ. He also practiced real estate and family law. In 1989, Jeff was duly admitted and qualified as an Attorney and Counsellor of the Supreme Court of the United States.

In January 2006, Jeff embarked on a new career heading up the expansion of a friend’s successful 27 year old New York based title insurance agency, Midland Abstract, Inc., and served as President and Partner of their NJ office, until his retirement in 2012.

He married Christine (Tina) Economaki, a fellow Cornellian, on April 23, 1976, in Ridgewood, NJ, and together raised two children, Alexis & Christopher.

Jeff enjoyed life to the fullest, always seeking opportunities to “invest in memories.” A devoted husband and father, he adored spending time with his family and friends. Jeff loved to cook and entertain with tried and true family recipes, as well as new culinary endeavors.

Traveling, especially in Western Europe, was a favorite passion; and he particularly loved exploring the storied history, culture, and cuisine of each destination he visited. Above all, Jeff had a fervent love of laughter and a quick wit; cherished by all who knew him.

Jeff is survived by his beloved wife, Tina of 44 years, daughter Alexis (Brian) Twomey of Melrose, MA; son Christopher (Jen) Riedl of Denver, CO; four grandchildren: Liam, Violet, and Bennett Twomey; and Sofia Riedl. He is also survived by his sister Judy Merrill (JB).

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 1:30 p.m., Sunday, October 4, 2020 at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, 150 Broadway, Rockland.

I first met Jeff when he volunteered his legal expertise in local opposition to a project in Port Clyde. His calm presence was so appreciated by our band as we joisted with the power funding the construction. His presence was also welcome at Mass at St. Bernard's in Rockland where
he and Tina assisted at communion. Much thanks to him, and to Tina, for being part of
life here in Maine.

I was so sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing. Jeff was a neighbor of mine in High School in Tenafly N.J. on Oxford Drive. We played on Tenafly’s State Champion football team together. I have wonderful memories of our early morning trips to school and football morning meetings packed into Don Reichman’s Triumph TR4 convertible. Being the youngest team member I was always stuffed in the luggage boot. Jeff was a tough competitor and great teammate. His artistic ability was amazing. His year book cover and downtown Halloween window decorations were amazing. My condolences go out to his family at this difficult time.

I remember those days so well. Jeff's doodling, which at some point I recognized as art, and Jeff's humanity were apparent when we were very little.I remember you too.
