1962 Kutztown Area H.S. graduate

David M. Henninger, 75, of DeLand, Fla., formerly of Kempton, died Dec. 11, 2019, after a brief hospitalization.

He and his wife, Patricia Searing, celebrated 36 years of marriage.

Born in Lenhartsville, he was a son of Pauline (Fetherolf) Henninger and the late Miles D. Henninger.

After graduating from Kutztown Area High School in 1962, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving on the USS Francis Marion until 1964.

He began his lifelong career in procurement with Mack Trucks, which eventually led to him receiving a lifetime certified purchasing management designation.

He was also a 1982 graduate of Wilmington College, Wilmington, Del., from which he earned a Bachelor of Science degree.

Upon retirement, he and his wife enjoyed full-time RVing until settling in Deland, FL. in 2019.

He was a member of Emmaus Lutheran Church, Orange City, Fla., where he was very involved in serving.

His passion was to serve his community, especially veterans throughout his travels.

In addition to his loving wife, his survivors include his daughter, Dawn, wife of Lahcen Fahim of Kutztown; stepdaughter Janet (McNally), wife of Steven Clayton, of Chicago, Ill.; stepson Steven McNally husband of Morgane (Fruwirth) of Carmel, Calif.; grandchildren David and Laila Fahim, Alec and Jessica Clayton, and Jared, Margot and Jason McNally; sisters Darlene, wife of Jerry Berk, and Sandra, wife of Kermit Bauscher, all of Kempton; and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his brother, Dallas Henninger.

Well-loved and deeply missed, he will be remembered by his love of the USA, his kindness and ability to make others laugh.

A private service will be held at a later date.
