Loss of an elder member…

As time crawls on in it’s usual manner, we are saying goodbye to more and more of our senior comrades. Earlier this month we lost one of our oldest members, William C. Lenox:

William C. Lenox II, 97, of Elizabethtown, passed away on Tuesday, September 5, 2017 at home. Born February 2, 1920 in Lancaster, he was the son of the late William C. and Kathryn (Schlotterbek) Lenox. He was married 44 years to Jane L. (Seymour) Lenox also of Elizabethtown. His first wife, Ruth Easton Lenox, passed away in 1971.

A graduate of the Milton Hershey School and Penn State University, William was employed by Lancaster Newspapers for over 30 years, retiring as copy editor. He also worked as a free-lance writer for several newspapers and magazines. He was a U.S. Army veteran of WWII, serving in the China, Burma, Indian theater.

In addition to his wife Jane, William is survived by a daughter Rebecca J. Shiley (John) of Lancaster; a son William C.
