Richard H. Stoneback of Quakertown, PA passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 29, 2022 at his home on the family farm. He was 98 years old. He was the loving husband of A. Dorothy Stoneback to whom he was married 72 years.
He was the father of Thomas and James Stoneback who he worked side by side with on the farm until he was 94 years old.
Surviving with his sons are his daughter-in-law, Carol Stoneback, grandchildren Rachel Slifer and her husband JR, and Thomas Stoneback and his wife Michelle. Four great-grandsons Raymond and Richard Slifer, and Adam and Jacob Stoneback.
Richard dedicated his entire life to farming, alongside his twin brother Robert. Together they were Stoneback Brothers. They owned and operated Hagers Meat Market for many years in Quakertown. They also had a dairy farm, and butcher shop.
In his later years Richard enjoyed being with "his boys" just watching what they were doing, long drives in the pickup to look at the crop fields, going for parts, or to deliver grain to the mills. Even until the end he would ask, "What can I do to help".
He was preceded in death by his parents, Frederick Q. and Helen Stoneback, and his twin brother Robert H. Stoneback.
Services and burial will be held privately. Arrangements will be handled by Naugle Funeral & Cremation Service, Quakertown, PA. NaugleFCS.com.
