John S. Trechel, 90, of Akron, left us to be with the Lord Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2013 at home.
He was the husband of the late Bettie Trechel who died Dec. 14, 2012.
He worked as a pattern maker for New Holland Machine Co., retiring after 35 years when it was then known as Sperry New Holland Co.

He and his wife loved to travel in their time and were able to see a good part of this world; they also loved ballroom dancing and belonged to three dance clubs. He was a lifetime member of the Ephrata Elks Lodge #1933.
