Obituary for Robert A. Boxler Sr.

Robert A. Boxler, Sr., 82, of Chambersburg, PA, passed away on Wednesday, December 11, 2019 at his home. Born February 11, 1937 in Mineral Point, PA, he was a son of the late John H. and Elizabeth Young Boxler.

Bob worked in the ink room at James River for 35 years, before retiring in 1998. He was an avid outdoorsman and you would often find him in the woods hunting or fishing. He loved working with his hands and was a great woodworker. He spent many hours leading Cub Scout and Boy Scout packs, and was also a member of the Order of the Arrow.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Robert A. Boxler, Jr., his daughter Theresa Boxler, and his siblings, John, Dwayne, Harry, Donald, Helen, and Barbara.
