Irvin C. Enck, 57, Lititz, master carpenter, worked at EZ Homebuilders, outdoorsman
Irvin C. Enck, 57, of Lititz, went home to be with the Lord Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014 at the Troy Community Hospital, Bradford County.
Born in Lancaster, he was the son of Reba E. Kreider Enck of Ephrata and the late Carl R. Enck. Irvin was the loving husband of Joyce B. Stauffer Enck and they would have observed their 35th wedding anniversary on Aug. 25.
For the past 18 years Irvin was the director of building and maintenance for Friendship Community, Lititz; previously he was a partner with Reynold Zimmerman in the former EZ Homebuilders Inc., Ephrata, a local home construction company. A master carpenter and craftsman, Irvin designed and built his family’s home in Lititz with an artist’s attention to detail and design. He had a talent for fixing any home repair problem with ease. Irvin was a member of Village Chapel Mennonite Church, Voganville, where he served as a building trustee, and led the church through extensive renovations. He also served on the Building and Grounds Committee for Black Rock Retreat. Recently Irvin attended LCBC Church, Ephrata Campus. He attended Warwick High School, Lititz. In his younger years Irvin played bass guitar for several contemporary Christian rock groups. Irvin’s passion was the outdoors and he enjoyed spending time at the family’s mountain property in Lycoming County, where he loved bow hunting for white-tail deer.
Surviving in addition to his mother, and wife, is a daughter: Tanya Lynn, wife of Kenny McCardell of Lancaster; a son: Tyler Lee Enck of Lititz; a step grandson: Brennan McCardell: a brother: Charles R., husband of Vicky Enck of Lititz; and three sisters: Terri, wife of Linford Good of Sunbury, Elaine, wife of Tony Mathias of Lititz, and Carol, wife of Jack Roach of Manheim.
Irvin’s Memorial Celebration was held Aug. 17 at Dove Westgate Church, Ephrata.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to Friendship Community, checks payable to Friendship Ministries, 1149 East Oregon Road, Lititz, PA 17543-8366.
To send the family on-line condolences, visit BuchFuneral.com. Buch Funeral Home, Manheim, was entrusted with the arrangements.
