Obituary for Alan Brion Guenter

Alan Brion Guenter, 66, passed away unexpectedly on April 10, 2021, at Reading Hospital.

He was the loving husband of Barbara Ann (Zaluski) Guenter; they had celebrated over 43 years of marriage.

Born in Port Allegany, he was the son of the late Dr. Fritz Edward and Mary "Connie" (Connors) Guenter.

He was a proud graduate of Smethport High School in 1973, where he swam, played baseball and football and ran cross country. Alan continued his academic and swimming career at California University, California, PA graduating in 1977 and earning a degree in Parks and Recreation.

Alan was a Sr. Account Manager for Ecolab for over 30 years, retiring last year.

He was a member of St. Ignatius Loyola Roman Catholic Church.

Alan loved his family unconditionally and wholeheartedly. He cherished his children's sporting events, never missing a game or race. Alan also coached his children in youth sports for many years relishing the opportunity to be with them and their friends. He was a long time swimming official and was the current president of the Berks County Chapter of the PIAA Swimming Officials. He loved fishing, dancing, birding, Penn State, and everything Pittsburgh especially the Penguins, Steelers and Pirates. Recently he became the proud owner of a '65 Mustang. Alan loved humor, had a remarkably quick wit, and always would light up the room with his fun-loving smile and his entertaining commentary.

In addition to Barbara, he is survived by his children, Lindsay Ann, wife of Christopher Susi of Lincoln University, PA, and Matthew Guenter of Boulder, CO; and his grandchildren, Annalise and Cade Susi, who affectionately called him "Chief." One of six siblings, he is survived by his brothers and sisters: Gail Hanson, Cory Guenter, Gwen Crandell, Cris Guenter, and Scot Guenter.
