Obituary for Franklin H. Kreider

Franklin H. Kreider, 90, of Lancaster, passed away at home on Friday evening, November 13, 2020 with family by his side.
Born in East Petersburg, PA, on February 12, 1930, he was the son of the late Elmer K. and Mary A. (Herr) Kreider. He married B. Winona Stauffer on August 13, 1955. They celebrated 63 years of marriage before she passed away on February 1, 2019. He was a member of Muddy Creek Mennonite Church (Hope Fellowship).
Frank served 2 years of 1W service at Norristown State Hospital, Norristown, PA. He enjoyed the one semester that he attended at EMC, Harrisonburg, VA.
His love of music and enthusiasm for singing led to many hours of singing together with his family around the kitchen table. Throughout his life, he enjoyed being able to sing with various choruses and quartets. He passed on his musical knowledge by teaching music classes at Pleasant Valley Mennonite School, Ephrata, PA.
He started Franklin H. Kreider Coal, Fuel and Fertilizer, Lancaster, PA and later Kreider Foods, Lancaster, PA. With his creative mind and inventive talent, he was often found in his shop building the equipment he needed to keep his businesses running efficiently.

Brother Erik

To the Kreider family,
We are truly sad for your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are frequent for those who suffer due to the anguish of losing a loved one. We all experience this loss but the Bible teaches that soon death will end at Revelation 7:15-17.
The scriptures have provided comfort for the loved ones I've lost and show what God's plan is for those who have passed. Take peace and hope that Jehovah provides. The video below gives comfort from the Bible and about the end of death. bit.ly/Deathjworg

Dear Kreider Family,
We were saddened to learn of your father's passing. We offer you our sympathy at this difficult time. Our family has many good memories, including when Frank first started his business and did custom work for us. We remember him delivering fuel as well. All good memories...

You have our thoughts, prayers and sympathy at the passing of your Dad. I (Leon) have good memories of ping pong tournaments with Frank while your parents lived at the Farm House with Dad & I. I appreciated our sporadic phone conversations and breakfasts together. Frank was very creative in the many aspects of agriculture, of which he was a part. May you find comfort in your memories and knowing he is at peace. We will miss him. Leon & Nancy Stauffer
