He formerly served as the president of the Rydal-Meadowbrook Civic Association. He was instrumental in the creation of the Julie Greenbaum Memorial Award, which recognizes community service of high school seniors with scholarships. He believed in fighting for what was right and just and he was an inspiration to all who wish to serve their communities. He inspired and mentored many generations of civic leaders and fought for many civic causes in Abington. He was also a dedicated and hardworking small business owner, serving for years as the president of E Hubschman and Sons, a longstanding leather Philadelphia tannery. Later, he turned his love for the aloe plant into a company, The Magic of Aloe, based out of Pennsauken, NJ. He loved to drink aloe vera juice, which he did daily throughout his life, and never showed up to a family function without a bag full of green soaps carved with an aloe plant. He was born on May 6th, 1926 in Shaker Heights , Ohio. He grew up on and lived on a farm in Warminster, Pennsylvania with his sister, Patricia, whom he loved dearly. He served in the United States Navy during World War II, and was deployed on a warship in the Pacific.

He attended college at Temple University, graduating with the class of 1950, where he was the president of the One World League, a group promoting intercultural understanding based on a philosophy of brotherly love. He was also a member of Phi Gamma Mu and the elite Sword Society. He was a world traveler, a lover of good food and good wine, and a kind man who loved nothing more than cooking on his outdoor fireplace. He was a skilled gardener and spent his life surrounded by beautiful flowers. He was a fighter, beating insurmountable odds over and over. He never gave up. He believed in living surrounded by love and friendship, and he was full of determination and surrounded by love through the end. He is survived by his son, Paul H. Aloe, and his two grandchildren, Jessica Mary Aloe and Ryan Daniel Aloe. They, along with his beloved Abington community, miss him and continue to be inspired by his incredible spirit.

Catheryn Hamilton Kenagy, late of Rydal Park Presbyterian Home, died April 6, 2014 at the age of 100. Catheryn was born January 2, 1914 in the Bridesburg neighborhood of Philadelphia, to Irwin Hamilton and Katherine Christine Wimmersberger. Irwin's parents had immigrated from County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, around 1875; Katherine's father had come from Markgroningen Germany in 1867 and her mother was native-born. Her life was the classic American Dream, a rise from humble surroundings to an accomplished and fulfilling career with her beloved husband William. Catheryn was only 16 when her father's untimely death made work a necessity. Her formal education thus interrupted, she made self-learning a lifetime habit and became quite well-informed. She bought the Encyclopedia Britannica with the stated intention of reading it cover-to-cover. She met William Lloyd Kenagy at the time of her father's funeral and was always fond of recalling the circumstances: he was a boarder at the funeral home whom she had observed- but not formally met - many time on a work-bound trolley. They married in March 19, 1932 and thereafter she devoted herself to "domestic engineering" (her term). He spent most of his life in the employ of Simonds Abrasive Company in Philadelphia but they lived a few years in Perth Amboy, NJ, where the first two children were born. They were: Joyce (3/26/33), wife of William A. Heineman Jr, and Llyod Neil (7/27/34), husband of Esther Brotzman. The family then returned and stayed in the Philadelphia area and had a third child, Donald Allan (11/18/41), husband of Carol Evelyn Sleeth. They lived thereafter at 770 Fetters Mill Road, Huntingdon Valley. Catheryn belonged to the Presbyterian Church and Women's Club there. They traveled extensively. She was preceded in death by her husband William, daughter Joyce, sister Lillian Hamilton Montgomery and half-brother Karl Heckman. She is survived by her two sons and wives and devoted son-in-law plus 12 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren. No services are planned. Read Obituary
