Pastor Richard L. Workman, 67, of Hummelstown, and formerly of Philadelphia and New Jersey, passed away Wednesday, July 18, 2018, at his home.
Born in Philadelphia on July 23, 1950, he was the son of the late Henry and B. Freda Lee Workman.
Richard was the former pastor of Westmont United Methodist Church, Haddon Township, NJ, and Zion Community Church, Clarksboro, NJ.

Richard graduated from Bartram High School, Philadelphia, before continuing his education at Penn State University, Harrisburg, and Palmer’s Theological Seminary, St. David. An avid soccer follower, Richard was a season ticket holder of the Philadelphia Union soccer team. He loved being near any body of water, enjoyed reading, and was a huge Civil War buff. Richard was a devoted husband and father, as well as a passionate and compassionate man to everyone he met.

Wenner Workman, whom he married on September 23, 1978; children, Christopher husband of Sharon, David, Jeffery husband of Christy, Melissa, Timothy, Jamilyn wife of Eric, Sarah, Lindsey, Emily, and Joshua; and grandchildren, Andrew, Marisa, Cole, Carin, Landon, Mikalah, Eddie, Cadence, Charlotte, and Connor.
