So Long Dr. James C. Gehris

Dr. James Gehris passed away Tuesday evening.  Dr. Gehris was the definition of family practice in the greater Shamokin community for over 3 decades.  As far as medicine changed today,  Dr. Gehris delivered many of us 40-somethings along with house calls to the other sick in the community.

The last time I seen Dr. Gehris was this past fall at the 35th anniversary of Shamokin Area's Eastern Conference Championship.  He was there as team physician and to represent his son who played on the team. 

No matter what the occasion, Dr. Gehris also took time to say hello.  Godspeed Dr. Gehris you will be missed.
