Obituary

Chris Ahrens, 72, of Camp Hill, died from pancreatic cancer on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at home. He was born in York, PA on January 19, 1947, to the late R. Robert and Ann Voss Ahrens. Chris was preceded in death by his sister, Elizabeth and his niece, Jan Joannides. He is survived by his spouse, Sally; his son, Seth of Oakland, CA; his daughter, Megan of Atlanta, GA; his sister, Jan McDonald of Sanford, NC, and numerous nieces and nephews.
In 1964, Chris graduated from William Penn Senior High School, York, PA. He earned an associate degree in agricultural administration from Penn State University in 1968, and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Shippensburg University in 1971.
For thirty-five years Chris worked as a computer programmer and financial systems analyst at the Mechanicsburg Naval Depot. Shortly after retirement he returned as a part-time government contractor for fourteen years. His colleagues considered him a relic in the computer world because he knew so many outdated languages and had worked on the elephantine computers of the 1960s. Throughout his career he received several awards including the Civilian Meritorious Award for System Development.
Chris logged over one million air miles minus the frequent flyer points when he had implementations at our naval bases in Hawaii, California, Florida, Washington, Iceland, Spain, Italy, Sicily, Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Japan, Okinawa, and the Philippines. He marveled that a click of a mouse will do the same job today.
At age six-months Chris nearly died from spinal meningitis. As an adult he knew he had been living on borrowed time so he used it wisely. He thrived doing house projects, e.g. installing aluminum siding, gutting rooms, and finishing a two-story addition.
Chris’s memorial service will be on Saturday, February 1st, at Mt. Calvary Episcopal Church, 125 N. 25th St., Camp Hill, PA 17011, with visitation at 11:00 and service at noon followed by a luncheon at the church. The Reverend Dr. Gregory Welin will officiate.
In lieu of flowers please consider a contribution to Mt. Calvary Episcopal Church, 125 N.25th St., Camp Hill, PA 17011; The Humane Society of Great Harrisburg, 7790 Grayson Rd., Harrisburg, PA 17111, or Hospice of Central PA., 1320 Linglestown Rd., Harrisburg, PA, 17110.
