John F. Portscheller, Sr., 06 shop Toolmaker
AGE: 90 • Blackwood
John F. Portscheller, Sr., passed away on January 5, 2017 at the age of 90 years. Devoted husband of the late Dorothy, who predeceased him in 2009 after 64 years of marriage. Beloved father of Joan Puglia (Russell) of Washington Twp., NJ, John F. Portscheller, Jr. of FL, and David E. Portscheller
(Lois) of Gloucester Twp., NJ. John was also predeceased by his two brothers, Frank and Joseph Portscheller.
John and Dorothy met as children. They married and almost immediately, John was shipped out to serve our Nation during WWII with the U.S. Army Air Corps. Dorothy accompanied him, lived on base, and worked odd jobs so that she could be close to John. John was a long time employee of the U.S. Naval Shipyard in Phila., where he retired as a foreman in 1985. He was an avid bowler, and an active member of numerous senior citizen clubs in Gloucester Twp. over the years, serving as President of several of them. He and his late wife traveled together extensively during their marriage, and enjoyed spending time at the casinos in Atlantic City.
Viewing will be Wednesday, Jan. 11th, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM at Earle Funeral Home, 122 W. Church St., Blackwood, NJ 08012, where a prayer service will follow at 8:30 PM. Interment will be private.

Kevin P. Meehan 56 Shop PNSY
On January 3, 2017 of Washington Twp. Age 63. Beloved Husband of Patricia (nee O’Donnell). Devoted father of Sean P. (Michell), Timothy (Jill) and Kerry Meehan (Michelle). Loving grandfather of Gabby, Samantha, George, Liam, Cameron, Amanda, Mickey and Tommy.
Dear brother of Joseph F. Barnett, Jr., Michael B., Margaret F. and the late Martha Esher.
Kevin was a loving husband and a great dad. He battled courageously against every obstacle life threw at him. He loved "God , family and country." Kevin was the first in his family to graduate college. He was the epitome of the term lifelong learner.
When the closing of the Navy yard forced him to change careers, he went back to school to take education classes and ultimately became a teacher of his biggest love, history. He ultimately went on to earn his masters degree in educational administration.
Kevin's quest for knowledge didn't end there. He took classes in pipefitting, tuned in to any and all shows to do with history, read the newspaper cover to cover and even sat and read the encyclopedia like one might read a good novel. He traveled extensively in Europe to many counties to experience the sites where major events shaped history.
Kevin loved camping and hiking the Appalachian trail where he was famous for getting lost in the woods. He loved to tell corny jokes, provide text commentary during Eagles games and coin Kevinisms such as "going to the carnival is like buying a hot dog." He also loved God and helping others. He was a faithful member of the Knights of Columbus and a volunteer to his church's food pantry.
Kevin's first love was his family. His proudest accomplishment was his three sons who are honest, productive members of society now raising families of their own. He was happiest when surrounded by not only his immediate family but also his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews.
Through his final moments he continued to selflessly think of others. Concerned about his wife and family rather than his own condition, he passed away as he lived life - on his terms.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend his viewing Friday
7:00-9:00 PM and Saturday 8:45-9:45 AM at the Egizi Funeral Home
119 Ganttown Rd., Washington Twp. Mass of Christian Burial 10:30 AM at Mary Mother of Mercy Parish/Our Lady of Lourdes RC Church, Glassboro. Entombment, All Saints Cemetery, Newfield.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Kevin’s memory may be made to Mary Mother of Mercy Parish, 500 Greentree Rd., Glassboro, NJ 08028.
