Henry Longacre

August 21, 1941 — August 7, 2022


Henry William Longacre, age 80, of Telford, PA, peacefully passed away surrounded by his family on August 7, 2022, in Ocean City, NJ.  He was the spouse of Carol L. (Swartley) Longacre with whom he shared almost 60 years of marriage.  Born in Quakertown, PA, he was the son of Horace W. Longacre and Elizabeth M. (Goshow) Longacre.

Henry graduated from Christopher Dock Mennonite High School.  He was employed and a partner in the family business, Longacre’s Poultry.  As a lifelong member of Swamp Mennonite Church, he served in many capacities throughout the years.  He was also passionate about Spruce Lake Retreat and Mennonite Education, serving on the board at Christopher Dock Mennonite High School for over 20 years. He was a philanthropist who supported many organizations and individuals in the community. Also, having an entrepreneurial spirit, he was involved in starting up several businesses including Bakers Best and First Service Bank.  Henry received joy in buying and selling, starting by going to farmer’s markets as a boy and continuing through his whole life, even in retirement, having a table at Rice’s Market where he loved interacting with people.  Most importantly he was a man who lived his life to honor God, devoted to his family and community.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his sons, H. William (Catharine) of Quakertown, G. Robert (Lorena) of Telford, and Cory L. (Linda) of Telford, grandchildren, Isaac, Elizabeth, Lydia, and Benjamin, Micah (Shauna), Levi, Kristen, and Nicole, and Olyvia (Amanda), Davry, and Zeke.
