Philip "Craig" Ginter

Philip Craig Ginter was the son of Dorothy Sanders Ginter and the late Lewis Ginter. He was the fourth of five children.

“Craig,” as he was known to everyone, was a graduate of Twin Valley High School. He lived his life in service to others. He was a Cub Scout and Boy Scout leader. He volunteered at Downingtown Rescue Hose Company, Honey Brook Volunteer Fire Company, and most recently with the Beavertown Rescue Hose Company 20 and as an EMR on the Beavertown Ambulance Crew.

Craig was a secretary for the Gideons and an active and faithful member of Hummels United Methodist Church, where he was on the board of trustees and the church council.

Craig was a mechanic and enjoyed his work as Selinsgrove Center, as well as working on the truck at the fire station.

In his free time, he enjoyed hiking, hunting, and golfing. His dog, Bo, was never far from his side.

He leaves behind his wife, Diane; three sons, Philip (Rose) Ginter, Brandon Ginter, and Joshua (Megan) Eversmeyer; two daughters, Lindsey (Derek) Mercer and Amanda Ginter; sister, Ellen Bonds; brothers, John (Elizabeth) Ginter and Louis (Renee) Ginter; and eight grandchildren.

Craig lived his life to the fullest and always had a smile on his face.

He would want everyone to dance in the kitchen, like he did every night.

It’s the small things in life that matter, that leave lasting memories.
