Chris Allen Hornberger

December 12, 1979 ~ June 30, 2020 (age 40)


Chris Allen Hornberger went to be with his Lord and Savior on June 30, 2020 at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville where he was a patient.  Chris was 40 years old at the time of his death; born December 12, 1979 in Berwick, PA.  Chris was a resident of the Orangeville area.

Chris graduated from Millville Jr. & Sr. High School in 1999.  He was employed by a local sawmill until he fell ill.  In the past he was employed by the Shickshinny Borough for many years, along with jobs in construction. Chris was good with his hands and could build anything.  He also was a great mechanic and loved working on cars and riding his 4-wheeler and making crazy inventions.  He loved spending time with his family and friends; was an avid fisherman and hunter enjoyed hunting with his friend, Larry Young, of Millville.

Chris was a fighter and won his battle with cancer, but not long after he won that fight, he suffered from heart failure due to complications from his chemo; he did win that fight also but it left him unable to continue working or live the life he wanted to.  Chris became ill again and this time his heart was too weak to continue the fight.

Chris had his own way of viewing life; he never felt sorry for himself and the hand he was dealt he believed himself lucky for what/who he had in his life.  He had strong faith in our Lord and worshiped at Stillwater Christian Church in Stillwater.  He also sought council with his Great Aunt Vicki Laubach, whom is a pastor in Pittsburgh.

Chris was proceeded in death by his Father, Kevin Hornberger; Grandparents, James and Jean Hornberger; Aunt, Jackie Sieputowski, Uncles, Keith and Shawn Davis; Brother-In-Law, Sgt. Thomas Baysore; Great Uncles, Harry Slusser, David Slusser, Clifford Slusser and Larry Laubach.

Chris is survived by his children, Shawn and Hope Hornberger of Millville; Parents,  Penny and John Hess Jr., of Orangeville;  sisters,  Rochelle Trenholm of Hughesville; Jamie Baysore and her partner Eddy Luna, of Clarksville TN;  Amanda McWilliams and spouse Brent, of Benton;  Grandmothers,  Virginia Slusser, of Berwick and Mary Fenstamaker,  of Muncy; Great Uncles,  Ron Redmond, Clarence Laubach, Jr, Richard Laubach, and Gary Slusser, Great Aunt, Vicky Laubach, Aunts,  Kelly Mussleman and Lori Walls; Uncles,  Harry Davis, Kevin Davis, Peter Hornberger, Doc Hons and Jodie Hess.

At the time of his death Chris was engaged to Caitlin Biggs who resided with him and her son, Alexander Biggs, in Orangeville.

He will also be missed by his nieces and nephews that he loved very much: Emma McHenry, Darren Baysore, Sabrena and Ethan Wise, Natalia Luna, Kaydance, Ariana and Connor McWilliams and many cousins.
