Barry A. Bathurst, 76, of Palmyra, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, September 28, 2022. He leaves behind the love of his life, Susan J. (Pitt) Bathurst, with whom he shared 50 years of marriage.
Born in Niagara Falls, NY, on September 25, 1946, he was the son of the late George E. and Shirley A. (Fillman) Bathurst. After graduating high school, Barry went on to earn his Bachelors Degree in Mathematics from the University of Buffalo. He taught math for many years at Mountain View Christian School in Hummelstown, PA, and also served as the business manager for both the school and church. After retiring, Barry enjoyed driving for Manheim Auto Auction talking often with his family about the interesting cars he would see. His greatest joy was spending time with his wife and family.
Barry will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Susan; his daughters, Julie C. (Benjamin) Ricker and Rebecca S. (David) Schmaldienst; sisters, Shirley Bathurst and Betty (Mark) Witczak; brother Eric (Staci) Bathurst; and grandchildren: Christopher, Nathan, Aaron, Katelyn, Sami, and Meghan.
