Obituary

Carmen Lenten Kehler, 85, of Ephrata, passed away on Friday April 5, 2019 at Hospice and Community Care in Mt Joy.

He was born on October 27, 1933 in Pitman, Schuylkill County, to the late Lawrence and Eva (Snyder) Kehler.

Carmen attended a one-room school in Pitman through the 8th grade. He left school to help on the family farm and drove a market truck selling fruits and vegetables from the farm and drove a market truck selling cuts of meat for a local butcher shop. Carmen worked as a meat cutter almost his entire working career and retired from Acme Markets. After retiring from Acme, he worked part time for D and E Telephone and Zimmerman’s Auto Body and Supply.

Carmen enjoyed going hunting and fishing with his sons and especially enjoyed family holidays with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. The annual trek to Fenwick Island, Delaware with all his children and grandchildren was also very special to him. Carmen was a member of Family Circle.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 65 years, Ethel (Fertig); sons, Steven (Beth) of York, David, (Barb) of Lititz; a daughter Brenda (Bryan) Redcay of Ephrata; eleven grandchildren, Jessica (Randy) Grove, Andrea (Michael) Root, Erica (Robert) Cucinella, Joshua Kehler, Brett Kehler, Eric (Lea) Kehler, Angela Kehler, Wesley Kehler, Brianna Redcay, Blake Redcay and Brandon Redcay; eight great-grandchildren, Vivian, Connor, Faith, Kira, Daniel, Benjamin, Scarlett, Alexander and a sister, Norma Adams.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a son, Randy and a granddaughter, Laura Kehler.

The family would like to thank the caregivers at Hospice and Community Care for the wonderful and loving care they gave to Carmen.

A viewing will be held on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, from 10 to 11 AM at the Donecker Chapel at Ephrata Manor, 99 Bethany Road, Ephrata, followed by funeral services at 11:00 AM with Chaplain Ed Dickel officiating. Interment will be private at the convenience of the family.

Memorial contributions can be made to Hospice and Community Care, P.O. Box 4125, Lancaster, PA 17604-4125.

Our deepest sympathy to the family at this time. Carmen worked at the acme with Rowland and they always tried to go to breakfast on the first Friday of the month when they retired. He always made our ground meat at the acme so extra good. He will be missed
by everyone. What a beautiful family he has. Everyone is in our thoughts and prayers
