Joseph Gochnauer

Joseph Gochnauer

Joseph Harold Gochnauer, 89, of Centerville, passed away on June 25th, 2018. He was born to the late Joseph H. and Emily Maurer Gochnauer and lived his entire life in house that he was born in. Joe was a carpenter for fifty-two years and farmed the family farm his whole life. He enjoyed spending time with his family as well as hunting and fishing. One of his greatest enjoyments was watching his two granddaughters work with their animals through 4-H at farm shows.

Joe leaves behind his wife of almost sixty years, Marie Kulp Gochnauer of Centerville; his two children, Cherri, wife of James Lamont of Flagstaff, AZ, and Dean Gochnauer of Lancaster; his two granddaughters, Sarah and Grace Gochnauer, both of Lancaster. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his four siblings, Dorothy, Virginia, Margaret, and Paul.

In honor of Joe's final wishes there will be no formal services. His family will lay him to rest at Centerville Cemetery in a private ceremony. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Caring Hospice, 101 Good Dr., Lancaster, PA 17603. Arrangements by the Clyde W. Kraft Funeral Home, Inc. Columbia/Landisville. www.cwkraftfh.com
