Daniel F. Cobaugh, Sr., 86, of Fairview Twp. Lewisberry, passed away on Monday, September 26, 2022 in his residence surrounded by his loving daughters.
Dan was a Supervisor with DDRE (New Cumberland Army Depot), Fairview Twp. and an infantry sergeant in the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War where he earned his Korean War Medal and his Korean Defense Medal serving from 15 September 1953 to 18 September 1961.
He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed working outside on his property, hunting, fishing and hunting for elk in Montana. Dan was all about cooking. He hosted all of the family gatherings at the holidays and enjoyed feeding others even more than he enjoyed eating it himself.
