Obituary for Stewart L. Hockenberry Sr.

Stewart L. Hockenberry, Sr., 70, of Bellefonte passed away on Wednesday, November 22, 2023, at home surrounded by his family. He was born on September 24, 1953, in Bellefonte, to the late John F. Sr. and Betty J. (Keith) Hockenberry. On December 22, 1978, he married his beloved wife, Wilma (Adams) Hockenberry, who survives at home.

Stewart worked at Sparkle Wash Pressure Washing and Restoration for several years and for B&S Building Supply. He loved to shoot darts and play pool. Stewart was a reliable weather man; he always knew the forecast and kept an eye out for any potential storms. His greatest joy was spending time with his grandchildren. When he wasn’t spending time with his family or shooting pool, he could be found hunting or fishing, enjoying nature.

In addition to his wife Wilma, he is survived by his two children, Christina M. Watkins (Jim) of Howard, and Stewart L. Hockenberry Jr. (Dana Walk) of Bellefonte, six grandchildren, Madyson, Camron, Bransyn, Bensyn, Zoey, and Mazlyn. Also surviving are his siblings, John, LouErma, Thomas, Dennis, and Robbie.

He was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Gary L. Hockenberry.

Services will be held later at the convenience of the family.
