Age - 73


September 11, 2023


Newmanstown, PA

Lewis Edward Seger of Newmanstown went home to be with his Savior on September 9, 2023. Lewis was born November 19, 1949, to parents Bernard and Ruth Seger of Beltsville, MD. Lewis graduated from Bladensburg Vocational High School in 1968. He went on to work as a maintenance electrician at the University of Maryland. In 1973 he entered full-time ministry at Teen Challenge Training Center in Rehrersburg, Pennsylvania. There he worked both on the farm as a Herdsman and subsequently as the Construction Trades Coordinator. He continued to work in various ministries and positions until 1991 when he could no longer work due to his declining health. Lewis continued to be a blessing and example to everyone he met, always looking for ways to help others. He could often be found volunteering to help with projects for friends, family, and church despite his disabilities. In 2012 he fulfilled a lifelong dream when he helped build a church in the village of Chiselet, Romania. Lewis loved to laugh and sing. In his younger days, he could frequently be found playing practical jokes on unsuspecting victims. He grew up singing with his family often in place of a radio in the car. He sang in two different gospel quartets through the years and served as a choir director while living in Virginia. Lewis could, until his last days, be found bursting out in song at random times and places. We know that he is now enjoying singing in the Heavenly Choir. Lewis is survived by his wife Darlene Seger, and by his sons James Seger, Jason and wife Melinda Seger, daughter Julie, and husband Jason Bowman, as well as seven grandchildren Sara Turner, Alexis Seger, Kyndall Seger, Austin Bowman, Mason Bowman, Braylon Turner, and Tristian Seger, also his siblings Donald and wife Margret Seger, Juanita Olson, Audrey and husband David Ogden, Barbara and husband Kenneth Lammers, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents as well as foster son David Woodrow French and granddaughter Morgan Anne French.

Gregory Joseph Iezzi, 68, of Newmanstown, PA passed away on Thursday, August 24, 2023. Born in Reading, PA on November 5, 1954, he was a son to the late Joseph A. Iezzi and Carmela Mary (Napolitano) Iezzi. Greg received his bachelor's degree in Psychology and Anthropology from Penn State University, in 1980. With a dream of caring for others, he continued his education at Reading Area Community College earning his associate's degree in Nursing, a bachelor's of science degree in Nursing from Cedar Crest College and a master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Kutztown University. For 40 years, Greg was a Registered Nurse working at various hospitals throughout his career; last working for Lehigh Valley Hospital-Schuylkill. He was also a Clinical Specialist for 20 years working for Berkshire Psychiatric & Behavioral Health-Wyomissing. Greg was a medical professional who possessed a strong work ethic and a natural gift for serving others. He was very conscientious in serving his patients with dignity, respect and true compassion and was often described as passionate, intelligent, and meticulous by those who worked with him. Greg (fondly known to many as "Greggie") will be fondly remembered for his love of the holidays, especially Christmas. He looked forward to picking out a fresh tree every year and he really loved decorating it. Greg was a collector of ALL holiday music and movies; mainly Christmas - of course ! He also was a Pittsburgh Steelers fan and had a soft spot for animals. Greg was a Jack of all trades, and took great pride in all the renovations, repairs and painting of his family's 1860 farmhouse, in Millbach. He was a devoted husband and doting father who worked hard to provide his family with an amazing life. Greg was the sort of person who could be counted on to be there when needed, and although he accomplished so much of which to be proud of; he was a humble man who was filled with quiet strength. He will be missed by all blessed enough to have known him. Greg's spirit will be carried on by his wife, Susan; daughter Gracie; stepdaughter Danielle Williams and his brother Anthony Iezzi. In addition to his parents, Greg was preceded in death by his sister Angela Bryson. The family will greet relatives and friends on Saturday, September 9, 2023 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM at Theo C.
