"There is no place like home"… Lee W. Reamer, affectionately known as Pap by friends and family far and wide, passed away at his home in Aaronsburg on June 2, 2018, with his family by his side.  Lee, 91, was born on September 21, 1926, in Lewisburg.  Lee was the son of John and Katie (Wolfe) Reamer, both deceased.  On June 5, 1949, Lee married the love of his life, Roselyn M. Reamer, whom passed away on April 24, 2002.  Lee and Roselyn lived in Aaronsburg. 

Lee was a hard-working, self-taught carpenter all his life.  Lee worked for a local construction company for many years and eventually formed his own business, building houses and remodeling many homes throughout the area.  In his later years, Lee worked as head of maintenance for the Penns Valley Area School District.  He loved working in his shop and spent many hours creating wooden treasures, but he is best known for his jewelry boxes.  Pap was a friendly, social man best known for his stories.  He was a member of the Rugged Mountain Hunting Club, where he hunted with his son and grandson.  He attended the St. James United Methodist Church in Coburn, where he served as trustee and a faithful volunteer in the soup kitchen.  Lee was an active man and enjoyed camping and playing Friday night bingo at the Hidden Valley Campground.  Grange Fair was an annual tradition where Lee worked parking campers, including his own, and visiting with friends and family.  He loved sports and was a faithful supporter of Penns Valley events.  He enjoyed watching his great-grandchildren participate in sporting events and his granddaughter cheer at Lycoming College.  At the ripe old age of 90, he was still flying to Canada to visit his daughter, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-granddaughters. When he wasn’t on the road, he enjoyed watching the Price is Right and attended a road show with his granddaughter. 

Lee is survived by his daughters Carol Cole of Cupar, Canada, and Lori Reamer-Shervinskie (Tom) of Mill Hall and a son Rick (Nancy) of Aaronsburg. His grandchildren include Stacy (Rob Brenner) Cole, Jody (Dale) Mostat, Greg (Sonya) Cole, Rich (Catrina) Reamer, Jennifer (Jarrod) Asbury, Lydia (Brian) Cowher, Meesha (Logan) Johnson, Adalea Brindel, and McClain Reamer-Shervinskie.  His great-grandchildren include Samantha and Aaron Brenner; Caleb (Kristina) and Colby Fay; Chase Mostat; Amanda (Jeff Lowenberger), Andrew (Anna), and Adam (Samantha) Cole; Corinne and Caden Reamer; Zachery Asbury; Amber, Noah, and Summer Cowher and his great-great-granddaughters Ayla Fay and Jordan Lowenberger.  He is also survived by a brother Arthur Reamer, brother-in-law George Richard, and sister-in-law Genevieve Krape.  Lee was preceded in death by his siblings Anna Schreck; Charlotte Styers; Dorothy Richard; and Elwood, John Nelson, Francis and Luther.
