Hallacher of Lititz; 3 grandchildren: Lindsay Forbes of Ephrata, Matthew married to Katie Gephart of Lancaster and Justin married to Sarah Gephart of Elizabethtown, and by his 3 great grandchildren: Madison, Leif, and Kaya.

Dear Marcia, Rick and Family – I sincerely enjoyed my time visiting with your Dad and will miss him very much. Please know that, when he told stories about his life, you could tell by the expression on his face and the warmth of his voice that he loved and was proud of you all. Keeping you in my prayers.
