Obituary for Robert "Bob" Fahringer

Robert “Bob” H. Fahringer has gone to see his Lord after a long battle with cancer.
Born in 1937 in Sunbury, PA he was raised in a suburb of Philly. He joined the U.S. Army in 1964. He married and had 4 children; Chris (Wallace) of Coppell, TX, Doug Fahringer of Trooper, PA, Wendy (Townsley) of DeRidder, LA and Joanne (Aversa) of Thornhurst, PA; all of whom survive him. He had 10 grandchildren, Charles Wallace, Ian Wallace, Sam Fahringer, Peter Fahringer, Corey Townsley, Celeste Townsley, Jack Aversa, Alec Aversa and Connor Aversa. Hope Fahringer, a granddaughter, was taken from us as an infant. He is also survived by his nephews Bob Pessolano of Horsham, PA and Chuck Pessolano, his wife, Flo and their 3 children, Ashley, Chelsie and C.J. also of Horsham, PA and Joe Pessolano.
Bob was with the US Army Military Police, became an Army Ranger/Airborne, served two tours in Vietnam, and attended the FBI Academy before retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1988.
He met and married Rita Vail in 1986 and they embarked on a glorious 29 year life together. If you met Bob you could never forget him as he had a smile that could light up a room. He loved the Lord and it showed in everything he did.
He was involved in his church, Fellowship Baptist in Fairfield, PA. He served on several committees and was honored to be a deacon of the church.
The Lord blessed us in 2013 when we decided to help a friend in need. This friend, Dianne Barry, not only has become a part of our family, she has given 110% of herself to being Bob & Rita’s 24/7 caretaker. We cannot thank her enough for what she has done for us and for what she has sacrificed in her life to help us.
Funeral Services will be held 10:30 AM on Monday, June 13, 2016 at Fellowship Baptist Church, 110 Mt. Hope Road, Fairfield, PA with his pastor Rev. Kenneth D. Gooch officiating. Interment will be in Ft. Indiantown Gap Military Cemetery, Annville, PA on Tuesday, June 14th at 9:30 AM. A time of fellowship with the family will be held at the church on Sunday, June 12th from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM. In lieu of flowers we would appreciate a donation to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, 5001 Angel Canyon Road, Kanab, UT 84741 or Fellowship Baptist Church, 110 Mt. Hope Road, Fairfield, PA 17320.
