    Jan Rittner Sr.
    Sept. 25, 1944 – Jan. 24,2021
    Jan Rittner Sr., 76, Tyler Texas, formerly of Shiremanstown Pennsylvania, passed away on Sunday morning. He was born in Mechanicsburg, PA, the son of the late David and Fay (Klinger) Rittner. Jan is survived by his 2nd wife, Leslie (Becker) Rittner; sisters, Patricia Shelton and Myrl Busler; children, Jan Rittner Jr., Tammy Whelchel, David Rittner, and Patty Rittner; and grandchildren. Jan was a graduate of Cumberland Valley High School Class of '63 and U.S. Marine Reserve. He was employed with Ironworkers Local 404, from where he retired. Jan's passion was helping others and his relationship with the Lord. His calling led him to Texas, where he lived out his life doing what he loved most. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Jan knew that the Lord helped and protected him in all of his endeavors and in time of need. Some may think Jan had considerable luck. To him, it was the Lord, not luck. The Lord took Jan home Sunday morning, almost as if timed perfectly. Jan's happiest time was getting up early for church on Sunday morning and making his invention of milk gravy for breakfast, while listening to the sounds of gospel music, most notably "Come Home It's Suppertime", when all of God's children gather around the table. Jan is now home at last. www.pennlive.com/obits
