John Arthur Schimpf, 87, of Pennsauken, went to be with the Lord on the morning of February 14, 2014. He was the dearly beloved husband of Dorothy (Anderson) for 62 years and is survived by her and their two children, Louis H. (Linda nee Fellema) and John R.(Elaine nee Pacione) He is also survived by 7 grandchildren: Jenna Thomasson, Peter, Lauren Napoli, Aimee Riley, Jonathan Andrew, Jonathan Charles and Kimberly, as well as 10 great grandchildren. John was a graduate of Merchantville High School (class of '44) and the Philadelphia Museum School of Art. John was the owner/operator of Louis E. Schimpf Inc. of Camden. He was an avid boater and a longtime member of The First Presbyterian Church of Merchantville. He was also a member of the Merchantville Country Club for 72 years. He was a Navy veteran, serving on the USS Los Angeles as a radioman during WWII. He was also a 32nd degree Mason and a member of the Mozart Lodge 121. John will be greatly missed and remembered as a lover of life and a friend to all he met. An example to those who loved him, Poppy was not a complainer, even as his body failed in recent years. We are content knowing that Jesus has secured for him: "A house in Heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands." 2Corinthians 5:1 Visiting hours will be held Friday, February 21, 2014 from 10-11:30AM at the First Presbyterian Church of Merchantville, 10 W. Maple Ave., Merchantville NJ 08109, followed by an 11:30AM Funeral Service. John will be laid to rest at Lakeview Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The First Presbyterian Church of Merchantville or charity of choice.
