Herbert W. Shollenberger, 92, Sulphur Run Road, Jersey Shore, went home to be with the Lord on March 16, 2020. Herb was born June 1, 1927 in Hamburg, PA to Herbert and Mary Shollenberger.

He served in the U.S. Navy from 1951 to 1954. He served in the WWII and the Korean War on a wooden-hulled mine sweeper and was discharged with the rank of Gunner’s Mate Second Class/Seaman Second Class USNR. While serving, he received the American Theater Ribbon Victory Medal, National Defense Service Medal and Good Conduct Medal. 

He was united in marriage to Edith M. Reeder on July 30, 1988. He was a member of Crossroads Community Church in Jersey Shore.  Herb had a great love for the outdoors and enjoyed hunting for many years. His true love and passion were the times he spent with his wife at Little Pine    State Park camping and going fishing together.  He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and a great Christian example of what a man should be.

Herb is survived by his wife, Edith; son, Bill (Cheryl) Shollenberger; daughters Lilly (Jim) Bickert, Angel Milton, step-sons Randy (Jodi) Reeder, Barry (Lori) Reeder, Steve (Julie) Reeder,  step-daughters, Levina (Carl) Irvin, Carol (John) Crawford, Kathy (Tom) Arndt, Susan (Gary) Budinger, and Brenda (David) Duck.  Herb was blessed with 22 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Amelia Shollenberger and his second wife Ora Shollenberger.
