BEAVERTOWN — Leroy H. Moyer, 79, of North Center Street, entered into eternal rest at 5:10 a.m. Sunday, April 28, 2013, at his home.
He was born March 14, 1934, in Bloomsburg, a son of the late Ralph H. and Mildred (Hill) Moyer. On Nov. 22, 1956, he married Vera A. (Smith) Moyer, who survives.
Leroy was a 1953 graduate of Bloomsburg High School. After high school, he served from 1953 to 1956 in the Army, where he had his own tank that shared the same name as his beloved wife.
He was employed at the Beavertown Weaving mills for 35 years.
Leroy was a member of the Beavertown Fire Company, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5640 and American Legion Post 52, both of Middleburg, and the National Rifle Association, and he was a 50-year member of Middleburg Masonic Lodge 619.
Leroy enjoyed going to hear his son-in-law’s band perform and was always known for his big smile. He especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. He was a friend to everyone and will be sadly missed.
Surviving, in addition to his wife, are one daughter and son-in-law, Tina Marie and Lofty Hackenberg; one son, Timothy Moyer, of McClure; three grandchildren, Shannon, Cameron and Shawn; and one brother, William Moyer, of Bloomsburg.
Friends and family will be received from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, with a Masonic service at 6, in the Pheasant Funeral Home, 316 W. Market St., Beavertown, where the funeral will be conducted at 11 a.m. Friday with Pastor Tom Schroeder officiating.
