   4/5/37 – 7/7/15

Charles H. Weidler, age 78, Lititz, died peacefully at home Tuesday, July 7, 2015 after a long battle with prostate cancer.  He is survived by his high school sweetheart, Elizabeth Anne Wolpert Weidler to whom he was married for 58 years.

A life-long resident of Lancaster County, he was the son of the late Charles W. and Dorothy Hartman Weidler. He graduated from J. P. McCaskey High School in 1955 and Penn State University – York.   He was employed for 37 years with AMP, Inc. and was the holder of many patents in the electronics field.  

Along with his wife, he is survived by two children: David C. Weidler,  husband of Debbie C. Weidler  of Lititz, and Beth Anne Weidler and her husband, Stephen M. James of League City, Texas;  his four grandchildren: Erin K. Weidler of Baltimore, MD., Jonathan D. Weidler of Lancaster, and Emily R. James and Samuel D. James of League City, TX; and his sister,  Janet Magee of Oroville, CA.   He leaves his family as his legacy; he was a loving and generous husband, and an astounding father and grandfather.

Chuck was a man who made little pieces of wood out of big pieces of wood, mainly building boxes with handmade dovetails, a skill he learned at Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum in his retirement.  He was a Guinness beer drinker, a John Wayne fan, a Porsche lover (although he only owned one) and a longtime Volvo driver.  He loved puns and word searches. He appreciated beauty and nature in all its forms. He also was a volunteer land steward for the Lancaster County Conservancy for some years.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend a funeral service for Chuck in Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 540 W. Walnut Street, Lancaster, PA on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 at 10:30 a.m.  Friends may call at the church on Tuesday from 10 a.m. until the time of the service.  Burial will be at Millersville Mennonite Church following the service, and friends are invited back to the church for lunch.

Please omit flowersMemorial contributions may be made to Lancaster County Conservancy, 117 S. West End Avenue, Lancaster, PA 17603, or Luthercare, 600 E. Main Street, Lititz, PA 17543.

Betsy, I was saddened to hear of Charlie’s passing. I enjoyed seeing him at our reunions. He was always a solid citizen and I respected him for all the good things that he was. Bob Sneath told me about this so I looked it up on the internet. We are out of state at the moment so I will not be able to attend the funeral. I will be thinking of you and your family.

Warmest regards—Don Carter

We shared many good times with you and Charlie in years past, particularly during our dating years. A good man who left a positive mark on his family, his company, his church and community in general. We are praying for you. Perhaps a lunch sometime in the future?
