John J. Hatch, Jr.

August 1, 1950 — October 5, 2017

Friends and family across the country are celebrating the life and mourning the death of a very special man, John Joseph Hatch, Jr. of Camp Hill, PA and Steamboat Springs CO. He passed away Thursday, October 5, 2017 at his residence in PA. John was a powerfully good man; a wise and supportive friend and companion, a natural athlete; full of fun and always ready for adventure.
He was born August 1, 1950 in Norristown, PA to the late John and Peg (McGrath) Hatch. He attended Bishop Kenrick High School, the US Air Force Academy, and West Chester State College (now University). He worked for Reynolds and Reynolds; then owned and managed real estate and was a ski instructor at Roundtop Mountain and Steamboat Springs in the second half of his career.
He is survived by his brother, Patrick (wife Hyon) Hatch of South Korea; sisters Barbara (husband Dan) Murnane of Wyomissing, PA, Ellie (husband Jay) Hashmall of Yorktown Heights, NY, and Kate (husband Dave) Poust of Hughesville, PA; nieces and nephews, Stephen, Laura, Monica, Joseph, Thomas, Regina Murnane; Patrick, Maggie and Joseph Hashmall; John and Sean Poust, and many dear cousins. His many amazing dear friends provided extraordinary care, comfort and fun during John’s illness.
A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 85 Marsh Drive, Carlisle, PA. There will be a reception at the church following the mass. Burial will be held at a future date at St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Norristown, Pa.
