John William Naugle, 80, of Hummelstown, PA, passed away on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at home with his family and loving dog by his side. Born July 26, 1940, in Lebanon, he was the son of the late Claude David and Frances Cora (Bateman) Naugle. He was married to Shirley M.

John enjoyed the little things in life – going to Hoss’s for someone’s birthday, watching the Halloween parade, and talking with his neighbors as he took his little dog for a walk. His family was the center of his life.
