Harry D. Prugh, 77, vet,federal accountant in D.C.
Harry D. Prugh, age 77, of Bowmansville, passed away at home after a courageous battle with cancer Sunday, Jan. 8, 2012.
All through his three-year battle with cancer he was always praising the Lord for his 74 years of wonderful health and felt he had no reason to complain for what he was experiencing now.
He was born in Atwood, the son of Ralph and Elizabeth (Orr) Prugh.
He served four years in the Air Force. He graduated from Schenectady Community College, Schenectady, N.Y.; Russell Sage College, Troy, N.Y.; and attended the management master’s program at Ryder College, Lawrenceville, N.J. He spent his entire working career with the Federal Highway Administration starting out in Albany, N.Y. and finishing his career as a supervisory systems accountant in Washington, D.C. He loved his Lord and was very active in the church for many years. He loved working in his many flower beds and sharing and trading plants with others. His winter hobbies were refinishing furniture and caning chairs.
Surviving are his wife: Lynne (Vrooman) Prugh; his daughter: Kathy L., wife of William Gartner, of Newtown; and his son: Dr. Mark, husband of Holly (Moyer) Prugh, of Lansdale. He was very proud that both of them are in professions of ministering to others, Kathy as a nurse and Mark as a pastor. He is also survived by two granddaughters: Bethany L. Creel, of Mount Laurel, N.J., and Emily J. Prugh, of Lansdale; twin great-grandchildren: Lilly and Josiah Creel; a brother: Allen Prugh, of Shelocta; and two sisters: Edna Grace, of Indiana; and Elsie Kenly, of Shelocta.
Preceding him in death are five brothers: David, Arthur, Ernest, Roy and Blair; and three sisters: Mary Gress, Martha Reefer and Verda Snyder.
The family would like to thank the Ephrata Cancer Center and the Ephrata Hospital for their wonderful loving care during Harry’s illness.
A funeral service was held on Jan. 11 at the Beck Funeral Home, New Holland, with the Rev. Kenneth Mingledorf and the Rev. B.W. Hambrick officiating.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the New Holland Church of the Nazarene Building Fund, 428 Ranck Road, New Holland, PA 17557.
