Harry Gisewite

April 3, 1931 — September 30, 2019

Gisewite, Harry Eugene, age 88 of Farmersville passed away peacefully in his favorite spot, the front porch of his home. He was born in Farmersville, OH to the late Burley and Ruth (Johnson) Gisewite and attended Farmersville School before working on the farm with his father, then joining the U.S. Army. After serving his country, Harry spent about 20 years working at Farmersville Elevator and after that he worked for many years at GM where he retired. After retirement, Harry loved working on lawn mowers and going to garage sales. He was always smiling, happy and had a contagious laugh that will be missed by everyone who knew him. Harry’s wife Rowena (Slyder) Gisewite preceded him in death in April 2019 after 68 years of marriage and he missed her dearly. Along with his wife, he was preceded in death by 2 brothers and 4 sisters. He is survived by his children Rick (Linda) Gisewite, Randy Gisewite, Karen Riley (Matt Jennings), Kelly (Greg) Moseley, grandchildren Ty Colter (Alechia) Gisewite, Kayla (Kendall) Long, Logan and Mason Riley, Sophy Moseley, 3 great grandchildren, Dean, Luke and Jaxton, and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.
