Richard C. Estes

December 8, 2020

Richard C. Estes, 74, of Mooresburg PA, passed away on November 27, 2020 at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville PA after a short illness.   He was born January 1, 1946 in Middleburg PA the son of the late Walter and Edith Heim Estes.  Richard was the first baby born in Pennsylvania that year.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 48 years, Kathleen E. Freas Estes.  They were married March 31, 1972.

He graduated from Middleburg High School in 1964.  Richard served his country in the United States Navy for four years during the Vietnam War where he was awarded the National Defense Service Medal.

Richard was employed at various jobs including leather cutting and welding for many years.  He retired as a machine operator from American Home Foods in Milton PA where he was employed for 13 years.

He was a member of the Mooresburg United Methodist Church.  Being raised along Penns Creek, Richard became an avid fisherman.  He especially enjoyed time at Fish Camp in New York State fishing on Lake Ontario. 


He enjoyed tinkering with anything that needed to be fixed, especially lawnmowers and small engines.  A tenderhearted, kind soul, he was always quick to share a joke or funny story.  Richard was loved and befriended by many, and he will be deeply missed.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by one niece and one nephew.

He was preceded in death by one brother, William Estes.
