John J. Hetherington, III Esq. “Jack” of Pipersville, PA passed away on Thursday, July 30, 2020. He was 73.

Jack was born in Philadelphia, PA to the late John J. Hetherington, Jr. and Josephine Krawiecz Hetherington. He resided in Chalfont, PA before moving to Pipersville, PA 3 years ago.

Jack was a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania in 1974 with a Bachelor of Arts degree and the University of Gonzaga in 1977 with a Juris Doctor degree. He was a member of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church of Hilltown, PA and the Knights of Columbus. He was a founding father of Elder Law, and a member of many Elder Law organizations and law committees, too numerous to mention. Jack was also an adjunct professor of law for a time at Bucks County Community College. He was elected Super Lawyer by his peers every year since 2005. His spirited personality, wit, and gift of gab allowed him to be a natural at speaking engagements related to Elder Law. He also authored many articles pertaining to his profession. Jack loved playing golf, gardening, pinochle, travelling, and sailing. He especially loved being with his friends, family, and grandchildren.

He was the beloved husband of 12 years to Anita (Schechinger) Hetherington; devoted father of Wendy L. Hetherington, Jack Hetherington IV and wife Lyndie, Patrick Hetherington and wife Kira; loving step-father of Kristin Simkins, Sarah Key and husband Adam; dear brother of Billy Hetherington, Patricia Robbins and the late Joe Hetherington; cherished grandfather of Jack V, Rylie, Oliver, Brooke and Colt.

A memorial service will be held at a later date. Interment will be at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts to Bucks Beautiful at info@bucksbeautiful.org would be appreciated.

I was Jack’s legal assistant from September 2013 to February 2019. I was shocked and saddened to learn of his passing. We had many good times working together. Many fun lunches and lots of laughs. One time he brought me with him to help him set up a bunch of political signs and they got torn down the next day. He went right back and put them in the grass again. He absolutely loved the soft pretzel store and frequently brought me hot soft pretzels. He was so funny. Always had great stories and witty jokes. Jack was very good to me, extremely generous and incredibly understanding. He had me bring my daughter to work when she could not attend school or camp and welcomed her with open arms. He was very good to her. She loved him. I will always remember how he talked so proudly about Anita, his sons, his daughter and his grandkids. Jack had a big heart. I’m very sorry for your loss. May Jack Rest In Peace. I know he will be missed by his family and his many many friends.

Very sorry to read of Jack's passing. I knew him from the old News-Herald in Perkasie where his son worked for me many years ago. Jack appeared as an attorney several times in my courtroom when I was the Judge in Perkasie. My sympathy to all the family, he was a good guy!

Please accept our sincere condolences on Jack’s passing. He was a key member of my team when I first ran for Hilltown Township Supervisor in 1989 winning a landslide victiry over the incumbent! Rest In Peace Jack! Ken and MaryBeth Bennington
