H. Wayne Dishman

     Herbert Wayne Dishman, age 67, of Oxford, Pennsylvania, passed away on Wednesday November 8, 2023, at his home in Oxford, PA surrounded by his family.  He was the husband of Leah J. Dishman, with whom he shared 45 years of marriage. Born in Jefferson NC, he was a son of the late Guy Dishman and Tina Eldreth Dishman of King of Prussia. 

 

     Herbert graduated from Avon Grove School District. He was very proud to have served our country in the Navy during the end of the Vietnam conflict from 1974 to 1978.  He was stationed in Alaska, Guam, Philippines, and California.  Throughout his life, when able, he gladly donated to several Veteran organizations.  He was also very proud of his son and daughter-in-law who served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

 

     He was the Maintenance Supervisor at Avon Grove School District for most of his career, retiring in 2014. He loved God and regularly attended services at New Beginning Baptist Church.

He enjoyed fishing on just about any body of water that had fish. He adored his family and lived for family dinners and get-togethers.
