Allentown, Pa and Bar Harbor
Dr. Robinson G. Fry, 90, of Allentown, Pa., and Bar Harbor, passed away on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2021, surrounded by his loving family at Lehigh Valley Hospital, In-Patient Hospice, Allentown, Pa.
Born Sept. 3, 1930, in Milton, Pa., Dr. Fry was the son of the late Eugene R. and Hilda M. (Robinson) Fry. He and the love of his life, his wife of 65 years, Mrs. Frances J. (Jahn) Fry, were married on June 25, 1955, in Muncy, Pa.
Dr. Fry was a graduate of Hollidaysburg High School, Ursinus College and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. During his many years of practicing medicine, Dr. Fry served in various locations. He was an attending surgeon at St. Luke’s Hospital, Allentown, St. Luke’s Hospital, Bethlehem, Sacred Heart Hospital, Muhlenberg Hospital Center and Gnaden Huetten Memorial Hospital and also taught as a clinical assistant professor of surgery at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He also held many positions of leadership throughout the medical community.
Dr. Fry was a member of Bar Harbor Congregational Church, Bar Harbor, and truly enjoyed playing tennis, woodworking, sailing, hiking, photography, baking bread, cooking and fine wine and food. He loved learning and spent time enjoying nature. He was active with the Friends of Acadia and Acadia Senior College. One of his greatest loves was for his dogs and he was surely greeted in heaven by his favorite golden retriever, Rufus.
Dr. Fry will be greatly missed by many people, but none more than his loving family. In addition to his wife, Frances, he is survived by his three daughters, Robin A. (Fry) Davies, wife of Clifford O. Davies, Plymouth, Mich., Kathi F. (Fry) Ramsdell, wife of Daniel R. Ramsdell, Zionsville, Pa., and Dr. Jennefer F. (Fry) Gehringer and Allen L. Gehringer, Hamburg. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Jennifer, Dana, Ariel, Carson, Ryan and his wife, Cristi, Hannah and Audrey.
