David C. Baier


David C. Baier, 65, of Bastress Township, passed away April 19, 2019, doing what he loved, which was working on his farm. Born in Bastress Township, on July 14, 1953, he was the son of Charles A. and Ann E. Baier.

Dave was a member of Immaculate Conception BVM Catholic Church in Bastress. He was preparing to enjoy retirement this July, after 48 years of service with HRI Inc., as plant supervisor for multiple area asphalt plants.

Dave was a loving husband, devoted father and grandfather, beloved son, brother, uncle and friend. He walked with purpose in all he did. Those who knew him would describe him as loyal, honorable and above all, honest. His labor of love was devoting time and energy to serve his family and others.

He and his wife, the former Karen Ann Hurne, would have celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary on May 14.

Surviving in addition to this wife are children, Shaunda M. (Shawn) Eck, of Williamsport; Tara D. (Kevin) Nash, of Williamsport; and Cassandra Baier, of Ames, Iowa; grandchildren, Malia, Elijah and Gabriel Eck, and one expected from the Nash family in November; three brothers and five sisters, Sharon M. (Parvin) Miller, of Elimsport; Carol A. (James) Helter, of Montoursville; John W. Baier, of Gainesville, Fla.; Ronald E. (Mary) Baier, of Jersey Shore; Debora R. (John) Isaacson, of Winfield; Michelle L. (Kurt) Steinbacher, of Salladasburg; Shirley Wilson, of Glen Burnie, Md.; and Joseph M. Baier, of Williamsport.

He was predeceased by his father, Charles A. Baier and a brother, Paul M. Baier.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at the church, 5973 Jacks Hollow Road, Williamsport, 11 a.m. Wednesday morning with his pastor, Rev. Bert S. Kozen V.F., officiating.

The family will receive friends and family at Crouse Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 133 E. Third St., from noon to 2 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, with the rosary being recited at 8:30 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made to Immaculate Conception Catholic Church or a charity of choice in his honor.
