Obituary for William Henry "Bill" Lord
William Henry “Bill” Lord, 85, of Glen Richey, passed away Thursday November 28, 2019 at his residence.

Born March 20th, 1934 in Bloomington, Pike Township, Pa he was the son of the late Albert Wade and Violet Evelyn (Wilt) Lord. Mr. Lord grew up on his family farm on Schofield Street in Curwensville, Pa. He served in the National Guard for many years and was honorably discharged in August 1962.

He was a member and former Deacon of Faith Bible Church in Lumber City, Pa. and assisted at the Living Bread Ministries in Clearfield, Pa.

On December 19, 1955 in Oakland, Maryland he wed Doris Elaine (Matthews) Lord who survives, also surviving are four children; Cindy Selfridge of Glen Richey, Pa, Larry Lord of Smoke Run, Pa, Steve Lord and wife Bonnie of Olanta, Pa, and Lon Castelli and wife Angela, of Clearfield, Pa, one sister; Marjorie Miller of Mahaffey, Pa, six grandchildren; Teresa Dixon, Brandon Cathcart and wife Anita, Autumn Shifter and husband Kevin, Stephanie Lord-Wetherington and husband Max, Lindsay Lord, and Brody Lord and wife Shawna, four great-grandchildren; Miranda Elensky, Hannah Dixon, Aubrey Cathcart, and Cora Wetherington, one great-great-grandchild; Brantley Elensky, as well as many step-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Bill was an avid gardener who had a green thumb. He took great pleasure in the outdoors, cultivating a variety of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. When he wasn’t in the garden, you could often find him tinkering around on his tractor, tending to his chickens, or relaxing out on the patio admiring the hummingbirds. He loved the outdoors but there was nothing he loved more than his grandchildren. Being able to share his love, knowledge, and laughs with them brought him tremendous happiness.

Family and friends are welcomed to a Celebration of Life service on Saturday, December 28th, 2019 at 1:00 P.M. at Faith Bible Church, 398 Grandview Rd., Curwensville, PA 16833.
