Reichert started the Krewe of Tucks with his friend Co-Captain, Lloyd Frischhertz.   They both started the Krewe of Tucks 49 years ago, while they were fraternity brothers in Phi Kappa Theta while at Loyola University.  They started it when they couldn't be Flambeaux carriers, so that's when Tucks was born.  Tucks is known for it's humorous take on Mardi Gras with their toilet paper, plunger, and toilet-themed throws.

Friends and family remember Reichert for his leadership qualities, his fun-loving personality and his undeniable love for Carnival.

Reichert was 67 years old.
