Carl S. Lahm Sr., 59, of Bainbridge passed away on the bright and sunny morning of May 8, 2019 at 11:41 AM. Having beaten a variety of health issues, he was finally defeated by the only foe he could not beat, cancer. Born and raised in Penndel, Bucks, Co., he was a long-time resident of Lancaster. Carl was a 1978 graduate of Bishop Egan High School. By all accounts he led an ordinary life. He was a custom home builder for 30 years. In his retirement he loved tinkering around the house, camping, family, his John Deere Tractor, and telling people “what they are doing wrong”, especially his son, Carl Jr.
He was preceded in death by his parents Leslie G. and Henrietta H. (Schaefer) Lahm, also his best friend four-legged friend, Jameson. He is survived by his loving wife Debra Ann, daughter Victoria (Eric) Cunningham, sons Carl (Hope), Jr. and Dylan; stepchildren Jennifer (Jeremiah) Mistick, and Michael Homoki (Susan) and his grandchildren Charlotte and Carl Lahm III and Sydney Mistick. Also surviving are his three brothers and six sisters as well as several nieces and nephews. He was loved by his beloved puppy Ellie Mae, and his dogs Bailey, Lily, and Angel. In addition, he is survived by the Williams family of Lancaster and the Gregoire family of Pittsburgh.
A Funeral Service will be held at Sheetz Funeral Home Inc., 16 East Main St., Mount Joy, PA on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 2 PM. Carl’s family will receive friends from 12 PM to 2 PM. Interment will be private and held at a later date in Greenwood Memorial Cemetery, Lower Burrell, PA . In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to St. Jude’s Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Pl, Memphis, TN 38105-9959 or Hospice and Community Care, 685 Good Drive, PO Box 4125, Lancaster, PA 17604 would be deeply appreciated.
