Obituary

Raymond (Scott) Hendel, 65, of Gibraltar, passed away peacefully into the night on November 6th, having lived his life in his own unique way. Born in Reading, Scott was one of the five sons of John and Carol (Leach) Hendel of Lincoln Park. His is survived by his Mother Carol and four brothers, John, David, Timothy, and James. He was a 1971 graduate of Wilson High School and later attended Lincoln Tech where his love of tinkering with electronics and circuit boards resulted in a career in engineering. He retired from AT&T and enjoyed other interests as varied as repairing pipe organs, installing solar panels and playing the bass. For years he played music with John King, Rick Cataldi, and other local talents. Most of all, Scott was a family man and along with Lori, raised two great kids, Lauren Elizabeth Hendel and Michael Scott Hendel, and his wife Tarryn Hendel. The family thanks all health care professionals who worked with and cared for Scott. We will all miss him terribly. Visitation with family and friends will be held on Monday, November 11, 2019 from 10:00 – 11:00 AM with services beginning at 11:00 AM at Klee Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Inc., One East Lancaster Ave., Shillington.

We don’t know how we missed this. We just found out about Scott‘s passing. Scott was a philosopher and we always enjoyed hearing his perspective on things. We were in honeymoon with Scott. He could learn songs very quickly. He would tilt his head and have a quick witted response about a situation. Another chapter in our lives has brought us closer to the Lord. Somewhere in heaven is a free spirited man making music. What a likable person! We will never forget you Scott Hendel

I played with Scott in the Zeus band back in the mid-70's. He was a great guy, very intelligent, and a hell of a bass player.

I'd like to thank the employees of Mifflin court and Fairlane Gardens for caring for my brother. I visited Scott often during his stay at both centers and appreciate their professionalism and compassion. Scott will be deeply missed. R.I.P, Lightning!
