John Gilbert Soult died peacefully on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, at his home in Clearfield. He was born on July 22, 1929, in Clearfield to Launcelot E. Soult and Aileen Rumley Soult.

Mr. Soult was a graduate of Clearfield High School, Gettysburg College with a degree in economics, and the Dickinson School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctorate.

On December 26, 1953, in Clearfield, John married his wife, Ann Hedding. She preceded him in death on October 15, 1999, after 46 years of marriage.

Following his graduation from law school, they made their home in Clearfield, where John was an owner of Soult Wholesale Company for more than 60 years.

He had many interests including photography, old cars, woodworking, locksmithing, gardening, and collecting and restoring antique toy trains. In addition, he had a love of reading history books and visiting historical sites, particularly those related to the Civil War.

John is survived by his children Cynthia Heins and husband Glenn of Rochester, MN; Kathryn Greene and husband Richard of Rochester, NY; and John G. (Jeb) Soult, Jr. and wife Lisa of Clearfield; grandchildren Alexandra Greene McCaw and husband Craig, Ashley Greene, Alyssa Greene, Claire Heins, Kate Heins, and John G. (Jack) Soult III; and his brother Launcelot E. Soult, Jr. and his family. He is also survived by his long-time friend and companion, Donna Tubbs of Curwensville.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the aides and staff at Comfort Keepers, who took exceptional care of John.

Friends will be received at the Beardsley Funeral Home, Clearfield on Saturday, April 13, at 10 a.m. The funeral will follow at 11 a.m. at the funeral home. Interment will be immediately after at Hillcrest Cemetery in Clearfield.
