John R. Seachrist, 69, of Douglassville, passed away Jan. 15, 2015, surrounded by his loving family. He was affectionately known by those who knew and loved him as “Bob” or “Moose.”

Born and raised in Lititz, the son of the late John S. and Beatrice (Buch) Siegrist, Bob was a 1963 graduate of Warwick High School.

Bob was a trivia whiz and enjoyed hunting, fishing, traveling and relaxing in the mountains. He loved spending time with his grandkids and was an unmistakable presence when attending one of their sporting events.

Surviving is Bob’s companion of 36 years: Shirley Stierly of Bucktown; his three children, Salinda (Sindy) Keyser, wife of Rob Keyser of Lititz; Heather Geeting, wife of Glenn Geeting of Hummelstown; and John R Seachrist Jr., husband of Ann (Landry) Seachrist of Pughtown; six grandchildren; and two sisters: Joyce Evans and Jean Harris.

He was preceded in death by a third sister: Joanne Seachrist.
