David P. Hepler, 95, of Williamsport passed away peacefully Friday, February 28, 2020 at Manor Care North.
Born August 9, 1924 in Gettysburg, he was a son of the late David E. and Josephine N. (Pelton) Hepler.
David served his country proudly in the Army Air Corps during World War II. Following his time in the service he began a 50 year career as a self-employed flooring and carpet installer taking great pride in his craftsmanship. David was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church, was an avid bowler at Faxon Lanes and had a green thumb for gardening. He truly loved the game of baseball, being a season ticket holder for the Crosscutters, and watching or listening to any baseball game he could. David’s relaxed, laid back personality was one to be admired by those who knew and loved him.
