Clifton “Skip” K. Hungerford, 88, of Montoursville, passed away on June 12, 2020, at UPMC Susquehanna Williamsport. He was born to Clifton L. and Miriam Hungerford on May 16, 1932. He served as a military policeman and a photographer in 1953, stationed primarily at Fort Bragg, NC. Upon his release, he returned to work at Weis Markets in Bloomsburg, and worked in his father’s photography studio. He met his first wife, Lois J., when she came to his father’s studio to be photographed with other nurses and they were married in 1956.
He maintained lifelong friendships with “the gang”; special and treasured high school buddies.
He spent many years as the manager of Weis Markets in Garden View, and then worked for Montour Auto, and later as a salesman for Susquehanna Paper. He enjoyed traveling throughout the state, especially on back country roads. He also enjoyed playing music, and was a member of the Masonic Band, the Danville Band, a dance band, and sang with his church choir at Montoursville Presbyterian Church, and the West Branch Chorale.
He was a member of the Eureka Masonic Lodge in Montoursville, the Williamsport Consistory (32 Degree), and the Scottish Rite in Williamsport.
He and Lois were married for 52 years and raised four children. They had 10 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren.
Following her death, he met and married Lois Yeagle, when he was “adopted” by her sons Mike, Steve, and David, and grandchildren.
He is survived by his daughters, Ann (George), Beryl, and Mary, his daughter-in-law Jan, and his grandchildren George Hyde, Michael Hyde, Eric (Kim) Hungerford, Kelsey Hungerford, Alec Hungerford, Emily Anderson, Holly Anderson, Gabriel Anderson, Kayla Harvey, and Seth Harvey, and greatgrandchildren Nora, Silas, Oliver, and Rhees. He was the best PopPop ever, and has the tee shirt to prove it.
Skip was preceded in death by his parents, Clifton and Miriam, his stepmother Beryl, wife Lois J., wife Lois A., and his son Cliff.
The memorial service will be held on Thursday, June 18th at 7 p.m., in the Memorial garden of Montoursville Presbyterian Church. Due to current conditions, attendees should bring chairs, and practice social distancing.
