Paul E. Reeger Sr.
BARBERTON-----Paul E. Reeger Sr, 85, passed away May 27, 2010 at his residence after an extended illness.
Paul was born in Warren, Pennsylvania and been a Barberton resident for the past 40 years where he managed Barberton Tire for almost 40 years. He was a member of Barberton VFW Post 1066 and was a proud Army Veteran having served during WWII.
Preceded in death by his wife Claire; daughter Karen Woodruff; and son Paul Jr.; Survivors include his daughters Christine (John) Town of PA, Bernadette (Bill) Hillyer and Cathy Reeger all of Barberton; son David Crabtree of Florida; eight grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; brothers Ben (Terri) and Earl (Shirley) Reeger; sister Betty (Don) Hart; numerous nieces and nephews and extended family Chris and Mike Camp and all the workers at Camp Auto Salvage.
God saw he was getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put His arms around him and whispered “Come with Me.” With Tearful eyes we watched him suffer and saw him fade away. Although we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
Funeral Services will be held Tuesday, June 1, 2010, 1 PM at the SILVA-HOSTETLER FUNERAL HOME, 1199 Wooster Rd. West, Barberton. Interment at Greenlawn Memorial Park. Calling Hours Monday from 5-8 PM.
