C. Gene Engles Obituary

C. Gene Engles, of Red Lion, went to his eternal home on Monday, March 11, 2024 from Wellspan York Hospital at the age of 91. He was the husband of Frances K. (Wierman) Engles to whom he married on March 23, 1967.

Gene was born in Red Lion on June 25, 1932 to the late John W. II and Helen (Anderson) Engles. He graduated from Red Lion High School, class of 1950.  Gene was a proud United States Army Veteran, serving in the 79th Engineers Battalion. Upon his honorable discharge, Gene worked as a carpenter for Roman Neff Construction and also dedicated 23 years of service as a history teacher at the former York Vo Tech. He enjoyed his class reunions and looked forward to his weekly telephone conversations with his nephews, Todd Engles and Mike Murphy. His retirement years were dedicated to the Bible Assembly Ministry at Mt. Zion Baptist Church. It was important to him that people around the world have a copy of God’s Word and have the chance to trust Jesus as their Savior. 

Gene was preceded in death by his brother, John W. Engles and half-brother, Charles Murphy.
