Kenneth R. Eichenlaub, 65, of Mount Joy, USAF Veteran of Vietnam 69-70, succumbed to cancer surrounded by his family Tuesday November 10, 2015.
Ken is survived by his wife Helen (Dee Dee McCulley) of 45 blessed years, daughter Cindi (Jeff) Lemen, daughter Robin, son Ralph, grandson Jamie Lemen, sisters Joan Hampton, Rose Richardson, Judy (Daryl) Fink, Marge (Don) Goodson, Jeanie (Art) Klos, and brothers Val and Duane (Renie). He is preceded in his death by his parents Ralph and Mary (Hoover).
A special thank you to Hospice & Community Care for their compassion and support.
Ken loved his family dearly. He enjoyed watching the Pittsburg Steelers, riding his motorcycle, and his lifetime hero was John Wayne.
Funeral services will be held at Mount Carmel church in Altoona Pa November 13 2015.
I worked with Ken at Oyster Creek, in the 80’s, and then saw him occasionally in Lancaster when we went out for coffee and a bagel. I’m sorry to hear of his passing.
To Dee and the Eichelaub family:
My prayers are with each of you in this most difficult time of the passing of Mr. E. I thank you for the neighborly friendship shown to my family over the years and the many tomatoes I received from you and Mr. E. May God strengthen you and your family at this time.
Reverend Dawn Harmon
My sincerest condolances to Ken’s family.
I met and worked with Ken for twenty years at TMI; we were just two of the group of employees who were from Altoona – a very prestigious group.
I only saw Ken once or twice a year and the last time we spoke he told me that he was undergoing treatment: I’m saddened that he passed away.
