Text size

David Alan Wirth Sr., 61, of 3886 Furnace Road, Lewisburg for the past 20 years, entered into rest at 7:50 a.m. Sunday, July 30, 2017, at his home.
He was born April 10, 1956, in Mifflinburg, a son of the late John C. and Elsie (Shaw) Wirth. On June 18, 1977, he married the former Bonnie L. Reigle who survives.

David was a 1974 graduate of Mifflinburg High School and later graduated from Geisinger School of Nursing, Danville.
He was employed as a registered nurse for 25 years, and most recently worked as nursing supervisor at Evangelical Community Hospital. Earlier in life, he worked at Bucknell University, Lewisburg.
He was past master of the Free & Accepted Masons Lodge 370, Mifflinburg, and a member of the Shriners.
David loved nursing and helping anyone in need of it. Everyone in his family and at work enjoyed his wit, sense of humor, and his knack for being able to make anyone laugh. David was the kind of person that knew every answer to Jeopardy and enjoyed going out to trivia nights with his friends.

Surviving in addition to his wife of 40 years, are two sons and one daughter-in-law, David A. Jr. and Theresa Wirth, of Mifflinburg, and Karl J. Wirth, of Sunbury; two grandchildren, Tyler Wirth and Jacob Wirth; two sisters and brothers-in-law, Beverly and Wayne Nolan, of Laurelton, and Joyce and Will Hutto, of South Carolina; and two brothers and one sister-in-law, James and Barb Wirth, of Selinsgrove, and Chet Haines, of Illinois; and many nieces and nephews.?

Family and friends are welcome from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the Roupp Funeral Home Inc., 8594 Old Turnpike Road, Mifflinburg, where a masonic service will be conducted at 8.

Memorial gifts may be made to the Office of Development, Shriners Hospitals for Children, c/o Maurice Clouser, 519 Old Orchard Lane, Mifflinburg, PA 17844.
