Francis (Frank) Feurer, longtime resident of Orange, entered into a peaceful rest on Sunday, November 15, 2020. He was born on August 1, 1934 in Bronx, NY, and resided in Orange since 1976. He was the beloved husband of Nancy Feurer, with whom he had 53 wonderful years.
Mr. Feurer served in the United States Army during the Korean War. He was heavily involved in the Boy Scouts in the town of Orange as a scout leader, having had 25 of his troop members become Eagle Scouts, two of those being his sons. He was awarded the Silver Beaver Award, an award given to adult leaders who have made an impact on the lives of youth through their service to the scout council. Mr. Feurer also acted as a volunteer for the Orange County Fair for many years, and was a regular communicant of Holy Infant Church. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, and grandfather, and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
In addition to his wife Nancy, he is survived by his three children, Paul Feurer (Sonya), David Feurer (Jessica), and Susan Perkins (Dave). He also leaves four grandchildren, Mason, Mackenna, Wyatt, and Olivia.
