Bob enjoyed traveling with his wife, Grace, and was an avid hunter.

Jr. and Barbara Kerstetter, of Fairfield; three grandchildren, John Kerstetter and wife Mandi, of Frederick, Md., and Rachel and Anna Kerstetter, both of Fairfield; two great-granddaughters, Elizabeth and Kathrynne, and Victoria, who is expected soon; and a special friend, Joan Hoover.

The family will receive friends from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday at the V.L. Seebold Funeral Home, 601 N. High St., Selinsgrove, followed by the funeral at 11 with the Rev. Rodney Gray officiating.
