Obituary for George H Rausenberger
RAUSENBERGER, George Henry, passed peacefully on October 22, 2017, of Marlton NJ. Age 96. Beloved husband for 69 years of Betty J. Rausenberger (nee Schuler). Loving father of Gary Rausenberger (Liz), Ronald Rausenberger (Debbie), Linda Parry (Michael), Nancy Meister and Diane Manahan (Patrick). Dearly loved grandfather of Chelsea and Sean Parry, Whitney and Derek Rausenberger, Lauren, Cody and Dylan Meister and Caitlin, Ryan and Ian Manahan and dear great grandfather of Shiloh.
Mr. Rausenberger was a World War II veteran of the US ARMY Air Force. He was a Private First Class serving on the B29 crew and receiving the Good Conduct Medal and the WWII Victory Medal. Once he came home from his service to our country, he married Betty J. Schuler. He worked for Holmes Burglar Alarm Systems and went to school at night receiving his Bachelor's Degree from LaSalle University. During this time, he also built their first home in Newtown Square PA. He worked many decades with Holmes Burglar and Fire Alarms retiring as Vice President. He then went onto work in Sales with ADT Security and finally retired at the age of 72. They raised their family in Marlton, and he and his wife, 'Betty J', retired to Manahawkin. They shared many years with family and friends near the shore, swimming in the lagoon and making memories - especially with their grandchildren. George was always fixing, maintaining or improving something around his or his children's homes. He loved gardening, hunting, bowling, golfing and jogging and was a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles. He was a longtime and active member of the Marlton United Methodist Church where he was a member of the choir and men’s group. He stayed active and enjoyed his life. Whether he was providing for his family, enjoying his hobbies or fixing something; his greatest joy was his children and grandchildren. George is part of what has been called the 'Greatest Generation'. Although his family would argue that he was simply the 'Greatest'.
