Vance Hurrell Obituary

     Vance A. Hurrell, 75, of Port Royal, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2023 in Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital.

     Born March 2, 1948 in Denholm, he was a son of the late Harold and Vernetta (Fleming) Hurrell. Vance was also preceded in death by his infant twin brothers, Fred and Frank Hurrell.

     He is survived by his wife of 19 years, Tammy (Richardson)Hurrell, three children, Staci Kirschner of Virginia Beach, Va., Vincent Hurrell and wife, Lori, of Canada, and Kelly Hurrell and partner, Craig, of England, step-children, Jessica Bowersox and husband, Jamie, of Port Royal, Amanda Flasher and husband, Tim, of Port Royal, and Vinson Peachey of East Waterford, sister, Sandra Stimely and husband, John, of Lewistown and brother, Wade Hurrell and wife, Deb, of Mifflintown. Vance was the proud grandfather of eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

     He worked for 45 years as a backhoe operator and pipeline worker. When not working, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, hunting mushrooms, gardening, woodworking, watching football and NASCAR, but above all, he loved spending time with his family, reading his Bible, time with his dog, Jack, and he loved the Lord.

     Vance was a kind and giving man, always there to lend a hand to friends and those in need. Guided by his faith, he would often find opportunities to talk about the Bible with the hope his faith may support someone else.

     His service will be private and held at the convenience of the family with Rev. Kenneth Kitzmiller officiating. Private interment will be in East Waterford Cemetery.

     In his final days, Vance asked that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to Matamoras United Methodist Church, 5718 Mountain Road, Port Royal, PA 17082.
