Donald Charles Kroh

Donald Charles Kroh, 87, loving husband, father, grandfather and friend of many, entered into the arms of his heavenly father on March 10, 2018, after a courageous battle with cancer.  His strong faith in God sustained him during his final hours of earthy life. 

Don was born in Summerdale, PA, son of the late Samuel Adam Kroh and Grace Mary Lightner Kroh.  He was the youngest of six siblings:  Martha, Elizabeth, Jack, Mary and Neale.

Don leaves behind to grieve, his loving wife of 66 years, Betty Mae Frock Kroh; his four children, Cynthia Mae Caswell, Pamela Kay Gutshall, Donald Charles Kroh Jr and Eric Samuel Kroh.  He is survived by 5 grandchildren:  Justin, Jared and Cassidy Kroh, Lindsey Kroh and Chad Gutshall; also many nieces and nephews. 

Upon graduating from Enola High School in 1948 as Class Valedictorian, Don joined the US Marine Corps and earned his electronics training.  After being discharged from the Marines, Don and Betty settled in Enola, PA, where Don built his home and raised his family.  He was employed by Motorola, Inc, as an electronics technician.  He loved hunting, fishing, camping, riding his motorcycle, gardening and spending time with his family.  He was the ultimate “Mr Fix-It,” and even built a concrete swimming pool for his children to enjoy.  After retirement, he and Betty became “snowbirds,” choosing to spend cold PA winters in sunny Florida, which soon became Don’s “happy place.” 

A visitation will be held on Thursday, March 15, 2017 from 10AM-11AM at Enola First Church of God.

Services will begin at 11AM on Thursday at the church.

Burial will be in Perry Heights Cemetery, Marysville.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in his memory to Hospice of Central PA.

The Sullivan Funeral Home is honored to serve the Kroh family.



My condolences to your family. This saddens my heart. May he be at peace. Your family is in my prayers.


My deepest sympathy to the Kroh family. May your memories help ease your sorrow in the days ahead.


Cindy, my heart breaks for you and your family. I’m sure your dad is looking down on all of you. Celebrate his life - a life well lived.


Cindy I was really hoping I would be able to be with you but I won't be able to get off work. Feel my arms holding you and praying for you and your family. Your dad was such a sweet man and God now has called another wonderful, kind hearted angel home. I'm always here for you.


Cindy I’m so sad for your loss. Your Dad was a wonderful man. He is at peace with the Lord. Sorry I’m in Maine and can’t be with you in person. But know this, I’m holding in my heart. Love you always.


Betty and Family, May the fondest of memories help you through these sorrowful times. Please know we are thinking of you during this time and remembering the good things in life as a child growing up with great neighbors and friends. Our deepest sympathy.
