            He was a 1954 graduate of Lake Lehman High School in Dallas, PA, and a 1960 graduate of Bucknell University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He served his country honorably in the Navy Reserves.

He was a member of the Upper Perkiomen Lions Club, a Fourth Degree Member of the Knights of Columbus, Local 6614, Archbishop Fulton Sheen Assembly #3046, and an active parishioner of St. Philip Neri Catholic Church in Pennsburg.

            Along with his wife, Patricia, he is survived by his children, Ann Stockton and her life partner, Harry, of the US Virgin Islands, Alina Lockhoff and her fiancée, Joe, of Salisbury Township, Alec and his wife, Jen, of Germantown, MD, and Marie Belsky, of Bally, PA; 16 grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren; his brother, Walter; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister, Alice Belsky Solinsky.

            All are invited to gather with his family on Thursday, April 4th from 9:30 – 10:45 a.m. with a Funeral Mass at 11 a.m. in St. Phillip Neri Catholic Church, 1325 Klinerd Rd., Pennsburg, PA. Following the mass, he will be laid to rest in Holy Cross Cemetery, Pennsburg.
