WATSONTOWN - Guy David Tanner, 67, passed away Wednesday, December 22, 2021 at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.
He was a graduate of Milton High School, Class of 1972 and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in 1976 at Lock Haven University for Education, where he majored in the German language.

Known to his friends as Albie, he loved anything to do with the great outdoors; but he especially loved fishing, hunting and shooting. You could find him on Penns Creek at the Weikert cabin seeking his limit in trout season, no matter the weather.
