Oscar J. "Skip" Retterer III passed away January 16, 2013 at his home in Lititz, Pennsylvania, surrounded by his loving family.
Born and raised in Bowling Green, Oscar was the husband of Celeste A. DiMarco and the son of Virginia (Castanien) Retterer of Bowling Green and the late Oscar J. Retterer Jr.
After graduating from Bowling Green High School in 1973, Oscar attended Bowling Green State University. He spent two years studying in Salzburg, Austria and received a Master's Degree in German from BGSU as well as a Doctorate in Educational Technology from the University of Toledo.
For the past 20 years, he was employed by Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania as the Director of Instructional and Emerging Technologies.
In addition to his wife and mother, he is survived by three daughters: Claire, Ella and Olivia Retterer, all of Lititz; and two sisters, Sherry Mortenson and Deborah Chapman.
A celebration of his life will be held for the immediate family and invited guests on Saturday, January 26, 2013. Friends are invited to join them from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Bowling Green Country Club on Fairview Avenue.
He simply asked that his friends and family remember him as he was - with a twinkle in his eye and a big smile. He will be deeply missed.
