Harold "Eugene" Lenhart, 85, of Saegertown, passed away Thursday, May 18, 2017, at Crawford County Care Center, Saegertown.
Eugene was born in Saegertown, on August 22, 1931, a son of the late Harold Elmer and Ellen (Newman) Lenhart.
On April 14, 1951 Eugene married Mae Wetsell; she survives.
Eugene retired from Pasco Tool and Die and had previously been employed by Starn Tool and Mfg.
