Obituary

Robert D. “Bob” Strawser, 61, of McAlisterville, entered into eternal rest at 2:28 PM on Monday, January 27, 2020 at the Geisinger Lewistown Hospital.

Born on February 18, 1958 in Lewistown, Mifflin Co., he is the son of Norma Jane (Spriggle) Strawser of McAlisterville and the late Donald L. “Jake” Strawser.

On September 9, 1990, he married his surviving wife, Jodi L. (Yetter) Strawser with whom he was blessed to share over 29 years of marriage.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his children, John M. Kauffman and his wife Holly of Del Norte, CO, Sarah K. Kauffman of Austin, TX, and Samuel W. Strawser and his wife Melissa of Mifflintown; his siblings, Linda Hendricks and her husband Dale, Lisa Martin and her husband Kevin all of Mount Pleasant Mills, Carrie West and her husband Troy of San Antonio, TX, and Kelly Curtis and her husband Anthony of Toledo, OH; and his grandchildren, Aubrey W. Kauffman, Isaiah R.M. Kauffman, and Samuel W. Strawser, Jr “J.R.”.

Mr. Strawser was a 1975 graduate of Selinsgrove Area High School and SUN Area Technical Institute in New Berlin.

For over 40 years, he was a self employed residential construction framer in Texas and Pennsylvania working side by side with his good friend, Mike Brown. After that, he took his framing skills and became a cabinet maker for TeddWood in Mifflintown where he was employed until his passing.

Bob was a member of the Brown’s United Methodist Church in McAlisterville, was very active in Pass the Salt Ministry with his wife, and was an avid outdoorsman and hunter, enjoyed muzzleloader hunting, attending auctions, “wheeling and dealing,” and riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle. In earlier life, he spent many years racing go karts, modifieds, and 410 Sprint Cars at several Central Pennsylvania Dirt Tracks with several feature wins. His racing legacy transitioned into helping with his son Sam’s racing career in go karts and sprint cars. The most important thing in Bob’s life was spending time with his friends and family, especially his children and grandchildren.

Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at the Lost Creek Presbyterian Church, 517 Main St., McAlisterville with Pastor Ronald Landis and Pastor Graham C. Fowler officiating. Interment will follow at the Lost Creek Presbyterian Cemetery, McAlisterville.

A viewing will be held from 5-7 PM on Friday, January 31, 2020 and from 10 AM until the time of the funeral services at 11 AM on Saturday, February 1, 2020, all being held from the Lost Creek Presbyterian Church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Mr. Strawser’s memory can be made to the York County Racing Club: Attn: The Injured Drivers Fund, 568 Yale St., York, PA 17403 or the Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, 1249 Cocoa Ave., Suite 115, P.O. Box 852, Hershey, PA 17033.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Brown Funeral Homes, Inc., 111 Westfall St., McAlisterville.
