Carey was a 1968 graduate of West Snyder High School.

He had been employed at Beavertown Weaving Mill, Kinney Shoe Corp., Beaver Springs, and Middleswarth Potato Chips, Middleburg, until disability forced his retirement.

He was a member of Beavertown God’s Missionary Church.

Carey enjoyed family gatherings, picnics, attending church and Christian concerts. He especially enjoyed talking to people, but the greatest joy of his life was his grandchildren.

In addition to his wife of 38 years, he is survived by one son and daughter-in-law, Michael and April Beachel, of Milton; one daughter and son-in-law, Melody and Tony Coleman, of Selinsgrove; two grandchildren, Rebecca Ann Hackenberg and Andrew E.

Klingler, of Middleburg; two sisters and brothers-in-law, Linda and Roger Zeigler and Ivy and Kim Kline, all of Middleburg; one brother-in-law, Dennis Klingler and his wife, Lisa, of Norfolk, Va.; and three nephews and two nieces.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Irvin and Edna Zechman and Charles and Clara Beachel; father-in-law, Richard C. Klingler; and brother-in-law, Richard A. Klingler.

Friends and family will be received from noon to 2 Wednesday at Beavertown God’s Missionary Church, corner of Covered Bridge and Creek Road, followed by the funeral at 2 with the Rev. James Plank, the Rev. Jeffrey Stratton and the Rev. Matthew Maloyed officiating.

Burial will be in the church cemetery.
