Kenneth E. Niewoehner, 94, of Bethlehem, passed away peacefully at home on March 27, 2022 with his wife Phyllis by his side. Ken met Phyllis (Metzler) Niewoehner in Johnstown, PA., married in June 1954, and enjoyed 67 active and happy years together.

Subsequently he served in Germany in the Army Corps of Engineers. Ken joined Bethlehem Steel in 1950 and retired in 1987 as a Senior Metallurgical Engineer.

Ken was active in the Boy Scouts throughout his life and served as Scoutmaster for Lower Saucon Troop 301 from 1971-1979. Ken loved the outdoors and was a lifetime birder with a life list that spans the United States and five continents. Ken and Phyllis enjoyed many outdoor activities together including biking, hiking and skiing. But his greatest joy and passion was for his family.
