John H. ‘Henny’ Hershey82, owned Lititz shoe store, Korean War veteran, tried out for Brooklyn Dodgers
John Henry "Henny" Hershey, 82, of Lititz, passed away Tuesday, June 26, 2012 doing what he loved most — fishing.
Born in Lancaster, he was the son of the late Abram and Catherine Cammauf Hershey.
He was a 1948 graduate of Lititz High School, where he was a three-sport letter winner. His love of sports led him to a tryout with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War.
He was a member of the Lititz Church of the Brethren and the Young Men’s Business League of Lititz. Henny enjoyed bow hunting and fishing and was often seen walking through Lititz smoking his pipe. He treasured time spent with his grandchildren.
Many years ago, he owned and operated Hershey’s Shoe Store in Lititz and later worked at Alumax in Lancaster.
He is survived by his daughters: Becky H., wife of Donald Becker, of Lititz; and Christine H., wife of Jay Bomberger, of Lititz; grandchildren: Ashley, Joshua and Benjamin Parry; Amanda and Chad Bomberger; and step-grandchildren: Christopher and Emily Becker.
Memorial services were held on July 2 at the Lititz Church of the Brethren.
Contributions may be made in his memory to the Lititz Church of the Brethren Deacon Benevolence Fund, 300 W. Orange St., Lititz, PA 17543.
