Walter Unruh

October 17, 1928 — November 16, 2018

Walter J. Unruh, 90, in his beloved home on November 16, 2018, abandoned his physical garment and entered the celestial realm. He is reunited with his precious wife of 53 years, Carolyn (Bauer), his parents, Mary Deeds and Walter, and 4 siblings: Robert, Dorothy Ruth, Charlotte Schwartz, and Mary VanFossen. Walter is survived by his 6 children Barbara (Jacob) Rice, Susan (Joe Baker) Unruh, Linda (Stephen) McKellar, James (Beverly) Unruh, Deborah (Leno) Rogers and MaryEllen (Richard) Knudson, 5 amazing grandsons: Eric, Aaron, Brian, Will and Jonathan, and 81 chickens. Walter loved God, his country and his family. He served two years in the US Army and then worked at American Olean Tile for 40 years. Raised on a dairy farm in Cedars, he continued to enjoy raising cattle, chickens and hound dogs, and farming his land for 63 years. He loved nature and reveled in the peaceful solitude of the night sky when the evening chores were done. Relaxation was found in hunting as he wandered the fields and woods, especially raccoon hunting, serving as the President of the Bux-Mont Club for many years. Walter and Carolyn opened their home to several youth including Henriette Lukens and Gary Bergstresser. Walter treasured his brothers and sisters of Christ Community Bible Church. We are grateful to the people of Grand View Hospice for their loving care and support during his final months Visitation will be Sunday, 11/25, from 6 until 8pm and again Monday, 11/26 at 10am at Christ Community Bible Church, 1830 Ridge Road, Perkasie 18944. Funeral services will follow at 11am. Walter will be laid to rest at Washington Crossing National Cemetery.
