DANVILLE — Howard F. Barnhart Jr., 89, of Locust Lane, passed away on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013, at his home surrounded by his loving family.

He was born Feb. 3, 1923, in Danville, a son of the late Howard Sr. and Iva (Remick) Barnhart. On July 24, 1948, he married the former Joyce Gass.

He was a lifetime member of Shiloh United Church of Christ, a member of the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Waterhole Hunting Camp in Hyner, and the East End Fire Company.

In his free time he enjoyed organic gardening, picking blueberries, playing cards with friends and grandchildren and finally, doing word search puzzles.

In addition to his beloved wife, he is survived by three sisters, Betty Barnhart, of Northumberland, Bonnie Phlegar, of Riverside, and Joyce Hopper, of Bloomsburg; two sons and daughters-in-law, Howard III and Susan, of Sunbury and Roy E. and Cynthia, of Milton; three daughters and two sons-in-law, Letitia “Tish” and Robert Fest, of Bloomsburg, Susan and William Hess and Gloria Olson, all of Danville; 10 grandchildren, Valerie, April, Robert, Rebecca, Judy, Roy Jr., Mark, Wade, Shawna and Bradley; 12 great-grandchildren, Rachel, Gwen, Jacob, Emily, Madison, Kelsey, Logan, Alexia, Chryslynn, Raegan, Camryn and Alayna.
