Obituary

Hanoverton- Jack Wesley Krell was born February 5, 1929  in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania.  His parents were Harry and Nellie (Jones) Krell.  Jack was the  third of four children.  He was preceded in death by his sister, Marcella and two brothers,  Kenneth and Donald.  He entered the United States Navy and served from 1946 - 1954.  He met Erleen  Moseley in Clemson, South Carolina while completing his High School Degree.  They  were married on November 26, 1953 at the  Northridge Wesleyan Church in Dayton, Ohio. Jack and Erleen have four Children:  Joy  and Joseph Bernet, Ronda & Jack Kill,  Mark &  Katia Krell, and Wayne & Debbie Krell.  They were married for 34 years when in  July of 1987, his beloved bride passed away.  There are ten Grandchildren: Kelly, Tom,  Adam, Zach, Jackie, Nick, Laura, Luke,  Jennifer, and Anna, and eleven Great  Grandchildren: Cole, Trent, Jaxon, Adrian,  Shaylyn, Dakota, Jack, Wendy, Kai, Gideon,  and Mary on the way in December.  Jack labored hard to provide for his family  working in various occupations such as a  milkman, a factory worker at NCR and Delco  Morraine. Then for 20 years maintained County roads as an engineer for Montgomery  County until his retirement in 1997.      He loved attending Church and was a  faithful member, serving in many ways at the  Northridge Wesleyan Church until moving to  Guilford Lake in 1998. There the Salem  Wesleyan Methodist Church became a new  treasured faith family.  He was a much loved  greeter and friend to many there. His faith in God and the salvation he experienced was a paramount experience that  guided his entire life. Quiet by nature, humble, but always ready to tease, wink, and give a  grin.  He greatly enjoyed gardening, puzzles, ice  cream, dominoes, peanut butter, and traveling.  We thank God for his life.  He was an excellent cook, a great host, and above all else the greatest of Fathers. Jack’s circle of influence is wide and his faith deep and he is loved by so  many.  We thank God for his life. Friends and family will be received at Salem Wesleyan Methodist Church today Nov. 11, 2019 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. and Tuesday Nov. 12, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. -11:00 a.m. at the church.A funeral service will be held Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. at Salem Wesleyan Methodist Church, with Pastor Stanley Grabill officiating.
