The following obituary was lovingly composed by Jack’s family:

Jack Stahler passed away quietly and peacefully on Monday night, September 23, 2019 from congestive heart failure. He was born on September 7, 1942 and felt fortunate to just celebrate his 77th birthday. He and his wife Connie of 45 years resided in the community of Royal Harbor (Tavares, FL) since 2010. Prior to that they lived in Bucks & Montgomery Counties in Pennsylvania where they raised their fabulous family.

Jack is survived not only by his wife, but also his daughter Holly Schade, daughter Lauren Smyth, son David Stahler, daughter Wendy Howard, and son John Stahler. He has 9 grandchildren: Austin, Dillan, Kayla, Hailey, Aubree, Jack, Ray, Lucas and Drake. He also has one surviving brother, Richard, who resides in New Jersey.

Jack was born in Philadelphia, PA. He attended Temple University as a young man and was a proud veteran of the United States Army. He then worked at Moore Products in Spring House, PA for 33 years as a Draftsman. After retiring, he became a school bus driver which he totally enjoyed.

Jack loved Frank Sinatra, the Eagles football team, dancing, boating, martinis, flirting, the Weather Channel, old comedies on TV, and always making people laugh.

Relatives and friends were invited to his viewing on Saturday, October 5, 2019 from 9:30 A.M. and funeral service at 10:30 A.M. at Wetzel and Son Funeral Home, 501 Easton Road, Willow Grove, PA 19090. His graveside service followed with military honors rendered by the United States Army at Forest Hills Cemetery, 101 Byberry Road, Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006.

Religious services were conducted by Rev. Bill Borror from Crossroads Fellowship Church, 1404 North Hills Avenue, Willow Grove, PA 19090.

Donations may be made in his memory to American Heart Association Memorial Fulfillment Center, PO Box 15120, Chicago, IL 60693 or American Cancer Society, 1818 Market Street, Suite 2820, Philadelphia, PA 19103.
