Dear Jeff and Aucker family - my sincere condolences for the loss of a special man. Mr. Aucker was always positive and supportive of people, and I recall his support to me during my childhood health and sports injury challenges. Even after we all grew up and went our different ways, he always greeted me with a big smile and handshake whenever I would see him during my visits home to Bloomsburg. My sympathies to all of you and you are indeed in my thoughts.

Aucker Family
Having spent many days and nights at your home growing up I got to know your husband and father. He was a kind and good man to me during those troublesome teen years. Additionally, I have very fond memories of Mr. Aucker during church youth basketball days. He was always very positive and upbeat and styling that flat top hairstyle. RIP Mr. Aucker.
