Charles “Pa” Glenn Kofroth, 81, of Lititz, passed away on Jan. 13 at the Lebanon Medical Center, under the care of hospice.

He was born Dec. 24, 1936, in Rothsville, son of the late Charles L. and Helen (McCreary) Kofroth. He was the companion of the late Geraldine Foltz for 54 years.

Charles served in the United States Army, working at the Pentagon. He was employed by Woodstream, a.k.a. “The Trappy,” for 38 years; as well as Bob’s Save Rite (Weiser’s Market).

He was known to his neighbors and friends as “The Mayor of Skyview Lane.” He loved decorating for all holidays, was an avid reader, and collector of many things. He enjoyed gardening, going to his grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s sporting events, and scratching off lottery tickets.

In addition to his long-time companion, Geraldine, Charles is survived by a sister: Joan, wife of Emanuel Stoltzfus, of Lititz; Geraldine’s children: Dennis Foltz, David Folts, Dorene Shaffner, and Danette Witmer; and his grandchildren: Jason Buonomo, Heather Folk, Holly Clark, Michael Monaghan, Amber Monaghan; and seven great-grandchildren.
