Obituary

Donald Walter Shenberger of Clear Spring, MD passed away on June 20, 2020 at age 77. 

Donnie was born December 14, 1942 in York, PA to Walter F. Shenberger and Laura Kite (Snyder). A Vietnam Veteran and a true entrepreneur, he was at various times a farmer, truck driver, insurance salesman, and business owner of Mercersburg Printing Inc. He worked hard to provide a happy, comfortable life for his wife, Ruth, and eight children. His love for God was the most important thing in his life and, after finding Christ in his youth, he was part of the Church of God Universal in Hagerstown, MD for more than 60 years. He traveled around the world to share the gospel through his testimony and song and supported churches in several countries. He will be remembered as a kind and humble man who truly loved everyone he came in contact with and lived his life as an example to others. 

He treasured time with his family, especially his grandchildren. Donnie is survived by his true love of 51 years, Ruth, his son David, son Douglas (Julie), son Dustin (Dianne), daughter Julie Swain (Daniel), son Duane (Heidi), son Dennis (Marybeth), son Dean (Dannielle), son Devin (Laura), stepmother Mary Shenberger, and 18 grandchildren. He was preceded in death by son Dane. He will be sorely missed by his family and all who were touched by his life.

Services will be held on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at 10:00 AM at the Church of God, Universal 12819 Point Salem Road, Hagerstown, MD with Pastor Greg Tyler officiating.
