Floyd E. Schlegel, 92, of Bath, formerly of Moore Township, passed away on Monday, August 03, 2020, at home.

Born in Moore Township, Floyd was a son of the late Walter H. and Mamie (Hagenbuch) Schlegel. Floyd was a graduate of Nazareth High School, Class of 1945. He received his Bachelor's degree in Music Education in 1949, and a Master's degree in Music Education in 1951, both from Penn State University. After serving in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict, he continued with additional graduate work at New York University.

Music was his life passion and Floyd enjoyed an outstanding career as a music educator, which included teaching positions in public schools at State College and Nazareth. He served as Director of Music in Bellefonte at State College churches, as well as St. John's United Church of Christ, Nazareth, for 36 years, and St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, Whitehall. In 1962, he organized the handbell program at St. John's U.C.C. in Nazareth. The 50th anniversary of this program was celebrated in 2012 and remains an active part of the church. After retiring from St. John's U.C.C., Floyd served as an organist in Milford, NJ, as well as in Slatedale and Whitehall.

Floyd was a former member of the American Guild of Organists and was a member of The Bach Choir of Bethlehem for 13 years. Additionally, he served as director of the St. Luke's Singers for 20 years; served on the committee which developed the 1975 United Church of Christ Hymnal; and was a volunteer for Meals On Wheels for 25 years. In 2004, Floyd was inducted into the Nazareth High School Wall of Fame, and in 2005, received an Outstanding Senior Volunteer Award through the Northampton County Agency on Aging. A love of music and dedication to service of others is how we will remember the enduring legacy of Floyd.

Survivors: Floyd is survived by nieces and nephews, which include Robert Schlegel and his wife, Esperanza, of Brooklyn, NY, Susan Krause and her husband, Robert, of Nazareth, Daniel Schlegel and his wife, Diane, Stephen Schlegel and his wife, Donna, and Evelyn Schlegel, all of Moore Township; seven grand nieces and nephews; and nine great-grand nieces and nephews. Floyd was predeceased by his brothers, William and Paul Schlegel, and a niece, Joan Martz.

Services: Funeral services will be private. There will be no calling hours. Arrangements are under the care and direction of the GEORGE G. BENSING FUNERAL HOME, LLC, Village of Moorestown – Bath. Contributions: In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Floyd may be offered to St. John's United Church of Christ, 183 S.

Over 200 entries here, mostly by Floyd’s students from the 50s until 1969 when he went full-time at St. John’s UCC as the Minister of Music. Now, I understand that there’s a Memorial Scholarship being set up in Floyd’s name! - to be awarded to a senior at Nazareth Area High School who will be attending college to pursue a career in Music Ed. I can’t wait to contribute. What a wonderful way to honor and remember our beloved Floyd.

I thought the emptiness in my heart and soul would get easier over time. You were such a supportive and encouraging part of my life, from elementary school to adulthood. Could always count on encouraging and supporting words from you. I have great memories of you, but would love to hear your voice, or get one of your fantastic hugs. Rest in peace, Mr.Schlegel...you were loved and appreciated for everything you did for us.

Grief never ends,but it changes. It's a passage, not a place to stay. Grief isn't a sign of weakness or a lack of faith. It is the price of love. Remembering Mr. Schlegel and the tremendous impact he had on our lives...School, church,extra-curricular activities,the neighborhood. ALWAYS a smile and encouragement. Thank you for the memories. R.I.P.

Scores of Floyd’s students from the 60’s have responded within this format...a testament to his teaching ability and his legacy. I thought this photo of a young Floyd would add to their memories.

I didn't want to sound repeatitive saying what a great guy Mr. Schlegel was...but...I truly am grateful for all he did for me,from elementary school thru high school. I was the kid from the wrong side of the tracks,who could have very easily been lost in the shuffle. Enter Mr. Schlegel,who took me under his wing...encouraging,supportive,always the right advice,at the right time.With his encouragement,succeeded in school,college,and career. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being my guardian angel on earth,and I'm positive you have earned your place in heaven. Eternally grateful Mr. Schlegel. You were one of a kind. R.I.P.
