David A. Romig, Sr., 65, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 7, 2019, at his home in Lower Pottsgrove, PA, surrounded by his loving family. He was the husband of Michelle L. (Glanski) Romig, with whom he shared 43 years of marriage.
Born in Pottstown, PA, on November 26, 1953, David was the son of Ruth (Hampton) Romig and the late Robert S. Romig, Sr.
Dave graduated from Pottsgrove High School in 1971 and started working full-time for his family’s business, Ringing Hill Orchards for over 40 years.
