Elwood J. Pisle
Elwood J. Pisle, 91, life-long resident of Shippensburg, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loving family on Wednesday, October 18, 2017.

He was born on August 25, 1926, in Shippensburg, a son of the late John and Sara Pisle. Elwood was a U.S. Navy veteran of W.W. II, who served in the European Theater, enlisting on November 11, 1944, and honorably discharged on June 28, 1946.

Elwood worked as a Supply Clerk at the Letterkenny Army Depot for thirty-nine years, retiring in 1983. He also served for twenty-one years in the U.S. Navy Reserves.

Elwood attended the Prince Street United Brethren Church and enjoyed going to Sunday School.

In addition to his parents, Elwood was preceded in death by one brother and three sisters.
