Richard Musselman, 82, of Gipsy, PA went to be with the Lord on Monday, October 23, 2023 from Punxsutawney Area Hospital in Punxsutawney, PA.

Richard was a member of the Gipsy Christian Church, whose closeknit congregation recently blessed him with a surprise hospital visit to share their faith and friendship by singing hymns in his honor.

Prior to retiring in 2003, he worked as a mover for E.L. Dinges Moving & Storage of Hollidaysburg, PA.

He enjoyed hunting, gardening and traveling. Richard and Peggy traveled extensively across the United States and Canada, as well as going on many cruises together. For their last vacation in August, Richard drove them to Niagara Falls, which was also the location of their first vacation together many years ago.
