Obituary for Thomas G. Gahring
OBITUARY OF Thomas G. Gahring
Thomas G. Gahring, 53, of Hummelstown, went to be with his Lord on Saturday, April 16, 2016, in the M. S. Hershey Medical Center.
Born in Harrisburg on September 30, 1962, he was the son of Alice J. Cassel Gahring of Hummelstown, and the late John “Jack” M. Gahring, Jr.
Tom was a former Program Specialist for Keystone Human Services. He was a 1980 graduate of Lower Dauphin High School, and graduated from Bob Jones University, Greenville, SC, and Word of Life Bible Institute, Schroon Lake, NY. Tom was a faithful and active member of Grace & Truth Bible Church, Hummelstown. It was his deep faith that carried Tom through trying times with his health. He was also a member of the Crestview Manor Civic Association. Musically talented, Tom enjoyed singing and playing the trumpet, drums, piano, guitar, and marching tuba. In addition, he enjoyed drawing and sketching; but his passion was working on computers doing programming. A man with a quick wit and sense of humor people enjoyed spending time with Tom. Above all else, though, Tom was the best Dad ever!
In addition to his mother, Tom is survived by two daughters, Julie M. Gahring and Angela J. Gahring both at home; one son, Thomas G. Gahring, Jr., at home; and two brothers, John M. Gahring, III, of Fremont, OH, and Robert W. Gahring of Hummelstown.
