Clarence M. “Rocky” Reidel gracefully completed his earthly journey on Dec. 10, 2023, at the age of 75. Born on Sept. 6, 1948, in Burnham, PA, Rocky’s presence brought joy and warmth to the lives of all who knew him.

Having earned his high school diploma, Rocky dedicated years of hard work as a warehouse worker in the retail industry, serving Sears faithfully.

Born with a competitive spirit, Rocky found great happiness in various pastimes. He eagerly participated in bowling and supported his favorite teams: the Phillies, Eagles, and Miami Heat, cherishing each game and indulging in the excitement they brought.

Beloved brother to Charles Reidel and Edith Gable, Rocky’s memory will forever live on in the hearts of his family. He leaves behind his devoted sister-in-law, Kim Reidel, as well as his cherished nephews, Andrew Reidel, and spouse, Kate, and Jason Reidel, and spouse, Emily; great niece, Ava Reidel; and great nephew, Chase Reidel.

Rocky’s final rites will be honored with the following services: a public viewing at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on Dec. 19, 2023, at 10:30 a.m., followed by a funeral service at 11:30 a.m. The services will culminate in a graveside service at the Indiantown Gap National Cemetery at 1:30 p.m., where Rocky will be laid to rest.

As a proud Army veteran, having served with dedication and distinction, Rocky’s commitment to his country was commendable. Enlisting in the Army on July 12, 1967, and completing his service as an SP4, Rocky’s noble contribution will endure as a testament to his patriotic spirit.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to the VA Hospice, 1700 S. Lincoln Ave., Lebanon, PA 17042.
