His funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m., on Thursday, November 8, 2018, at the Fogelsanger-Bricker Funeral Home & Crematorium, Inc., Shippensburg. Pastor Joe Thomas will officiate. Interment, with military honors, will follow in the Spring Hill Cemetery. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service on Thursday at the funeral home.
