John Y. Schreyer III, 73, Nashua, N.H.

NASHUA, N.H. — John Young Schreyer III, 73, passed away March 15, 2013, in Nashua, where he had lived since 2011.

He was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and raised in Milton, Pa., a son of the late John Young Schreyer Jr. and Clara Miles Schreyer. He was a former resident of Little Falls, N.J., and The Villages, Fla. He was married to the former Nancy Zechman, also of Milton, with whom he would have celebrated 50 years of marriage in August.

John graduated from Milton High School, Colgate University and the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania.

A certified public accountant, he became managing partner of the metropolitan office of Ernst and Young. After 26 years with EY, he joined Amerada Hess as CFO, retiring in 2004.

Throughout his life, John was active in community, professional and church organizations, including the New Jersey Juvenile Review Board, Lycoming College Board of Directors, the New Jersey Conservation Foundation and the Little Falls, N.J., Elementary School Board, where he served as president.

John loved his family most of all, but he also enjoyed years of Friday night tennis, poker nights, weekends of New York football at the Meadowlands and summers at Lake Naomi, Pa. He always looked forward to minor league baseball season with the Crosscutters in Williamsport, Pa., of which he was part owner.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by two children, John Y. Schreyer IV and wife Melanie, of Putney, London, England, and Beth and husband Brian Lowe, of Nashua. John was affectionately known as “Spike” by his five grandchildren, Alex and Evan Lowe and Jocelyn, Ethan and Jackson Schreyer. Also surviving are two sisters, Frances Schreyer Simko, of Milton, and Mary Schreyer Beegle, of DuBois, Pa.

A memorial service and repast for family and friends will be held this summer in the Pocono Mountains. If you wish to attend and need more information about the memorial, email jys31413@gmail.com.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in John’s memory may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association (www.ALZ.ORG) or a charity of the donor’s choice.

The Zis-Sweeney Funeral Home, Nashua, assisted the family with arrangements.  Condolences may be offered at www.zissweeneyfuneralhome.com.
