ALLENTOWN, Pa. – A long time chiropractic physician was found dead in his burning Allentown house.
Richard Bold, 78, was discovered on the second floor of his burning house and service late Wednesday night, the coroner's workplace stated.
Strong ran his company, West End Chiropractic, out of his house in the 2700 block of Tilghman Street.
Firemens were dispatched around 9:50 p.m. and discovered fire and smoke putting from the back of the structure, said Chief Jim Wehr, of the Allentown Fire Department.
“Neighbors were saying that there was somebody still inside,” Wehr said. “Unfortunately there was one casualty.”
Strong was pronounced dead at the scene around 10:30 p.m.
“He in fact got me into this field,” Dr. Jesse Hunsberger said.
Hunsberger, a chiropractic specialist in New Tripoli, credits Bold with inspiring him to begin his own company after he visited the medical professional in the 80s to treat an injury he suffered while in the Navy.
“He taught me so much what I do now. And the something he did inform me was, ‘constantly listen to your clients,'” Hunsberger said.
“We recently just saw him when the snow, he was snow blowing his residential or commercial property, which was the last time,” Ashley Roskos, who lives throughout the street, said.
Hunsberger hasn't seen Bold in a few years. However, he states he will constantly remember him as somebody who was full of life and delighted in skiing and windsurfing.
“A fantastic instructor. A buddy,” Hunsberger said.
“He was simply a great person and he's going to be missed out on. He's going to be missed out on,” he included.
The city police and fire departments are investigating the fire.
The cause and manner of death are pending further testing and examination, stated the Lehigh County coroner's office.Source: wfmz.com
