Obituary

Robert H. Anderson, 79, of Hummelstown, entered his heavenly home surrounded by his loving family after his 11-year courageous battle with metastatic prostate cancer, on Sunday, May 26, 2019 at his residence.

Born in Kingston, Luzerne County, on May 28, 1939, he was the son of John and Lulu Hallett Anderson.

Bob retired after 18 years of service as a motor coach operator with Rohrer Bus Service, and had worked for Capitol Trailways, Hempt Brothers, and ConRail. After retirement, Bob worked for Zeager Brothers in Middletown. He was a graduate of the former Dallas-Franklin-Monroe High School, Dallas, PA. Bob’s pride of being a U.S. Marine Corps veteran continued through his membership in the Bob Smith Detachment #784 Marine Corps League, Hummelstown; and in serving on the Indiantown Gap National Cemetery Marine Corps League Honor Guard. He attended Temple Bible Church, Elizabethtown, and formerly attended the Lebanon Valley Bible Church. Bob was an avid NASCAR fan; loved working outside doing yardwork, driving his Corvette and John Deere tractors and also enjoyed refurbishing furniture.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Judy Peterman Anderson, whom he married on September 7, 1968; three daughters, Brenda Carpenter (Derek)of Lititz, Carolyn Barrett (Harry) of Ruckersville, VA, and Cindy Reed of Madison, VA; seven grandchildren, Brayden and Cally Carpenter, Micah, Leah and Anna Barrett, Colby Messinger, and Wesley “Robbie” Reed; his sister, Nancilou Patton of Homosassa, FL; mother-in-law, Lois Peterman of Altoona and former sons-in-law, Todd Messinger of Columbia, SC, and Geoffrey Reed of Madison, VA.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, June 4, 2019, at 11 AM in the Temple Bible Church, 5880 Schoolhouse Road, Elizabethtown, with Pastor Andy Hawes officiating. Interment with military honors will be at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. Viewings will be Monday, June 3, 2019, from 6 to 8 PM in the Trefz & Bowser Funeral Home, Inc., 114 West Main Street, Hummelstown, and Tuesday in the church from 10 AM until time of the service.

Those desiring may send memorial contributions to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, 1250 Fourth Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401, or to Servants Heart Camp, 422 Servants Heart Way, Ramey, PA 16671.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Drabick, Carol Mallon, his nurse and the support staff at Penn State Cancer Institute and Hospice of Central Pennsylvania.

Dear Judy and Brenda, Carolyn, and Cindy,
I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I remember your family's faithful attendance at Lebanon Valley Bible church and how much my parents enjoyed your friendship over the years. Although I am not quite sure of what to say, I know God is faithful and good at all times. I pray you will feel His peace. Kristine (Illjes) Reid
