Obituary


John Rodgers Feick, 83, of Goffstown, NH, passed away in loving care at home on August 9, 2019 with family present or visiting constantly during an illness of several years.
John was born on August 18, 1935 in Reading, PA to the late Dr. Ralph H. and Mary Rodgers Feick. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Gayle (Gensemer) Feick; his four daughters, Mary Feick Jenkins and husband Paul, of Goffstown, NH, Gioia Feick Beliveau and husband Randy, of Weare, NH, Andrea (Katie) Lingley, Goffstown, NH and Cecily Bedwell and husband Wayne, of Perryville, MD; fourteen wonderful grandchildren; his step-mother, Marilyn Feick of Pennsylvania; his brother, Peter Feick and sister-in-law Edith in Connecticut and his sister, Linda Proctor and brother-in-law James in Pennsylvania.
John will be remembered by many colleagues at Saint Anselm College where he taught in the biology department for 44 years. He was educated at Albright College in Reading, PA and Pennsylvania State University and took further coursework at the University of New Hampshire.
John's interests and avocations were deep and varied. He was happy when outdoors; rock climbing, hiking, scuba diving, gardening, cutting wood, and traveling, but happiest when sailing, teaching others to sail and rock climb, sharing skills and activities with his children and grandchildren, and woodworking and welding. He was a founder of the Goffstown Rail Trail, taught in the Upward Bound program, conducted cell tissue research and studied and developed programming related to traumatic brain injury. He also worked with youth at the Philbrook Center in Concord, NH and was active in his church.
He was regarded highly and with love and wonder by those who knew him.
A celebration of life was held on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in Goffstown, NH. Interment took place at Forest Hills Memorial Park in Reading, PA on Saturday August 17, 2019.
