Mark D. Lorah, 55, of Reinholds, died Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016, in Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.

Born in Ephrata, a son of the late Sandra Jean (Huber) Lorah and George E. and Jeanne M. (Carpenter) Lorah, Denver. He was the husband of Cindy K. (Weinhold) Lorah for 32 years.

A 1979 Cocalico High School graduate, he received a degree in business administration from Alvernia College in 2010. Mark was a machinist and supervisor with Alcon, Sinking Spring. He cherished family time, was an avid motorcyclist, a hunter, and was a member of the Cocalico Sportsmen’s Association.

Also surviving are daughters: Heather Ann (Shawn) Burky, Ephrata; and Krista Lynn (Austin) Good, Richmond, Va.; grandson: Bryce Curtis Burky; and grandmother: Dorothy (Zerbe) Huber, Stevens.

Join the family at Peace United Church of Christ, 37 E. Swartzville Road, Denver, for a visitation on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 1 to 3 p.m., with the memorial service to follow at 3 p.m., with Rev. William E. Hoch officiating.

Rather than flowers, the family asks that you take a moment to hug your spouse, child, grandchild, or friend, and walk in the woods for a moment, an hour or a day. Time waits for no one.

Good Funeral Home, Reamstown, was entrusted with the arrangements. Online condolences for Mark’s family may be posted to
