Obituary for Charles (Charlie) Edward Stiefel, Jr.

September 6, 2019
Trooper, Pennsylvania


Charles (Charlie) Edward Stiefel, Jr., son of Charles Sr. and Enda Mae (nee Zang), passed away peacefully at his home in Trooper, PA on September 6th, 2019 at the age of 90. He was attended by his loving wife of 65 years, Julia (nee Klipple).

After graduating from Haverford High School, Charlie attended Temple University, where he studied business. Following graduation, Charlie joined the United States Marines and served as a rifle instructor at Parris Island, SC during the Korean War from 1951 to 1953. In 1948 Charlie met Julia, also a Haverford High graduate; they married in 1954.

As a successful salesman for the Graybar Electric company, Charlie provided a loving and comfortable home for his children and wife. Charlie was an avid golfer and could never drive by a course without exclaiming, "Look at those lucky guys!" A life-long lover of gardening, he reveled in growing tomatoes, peppers and all manners of vegetables. Fishing and jig-saw puzzles were also among his joys.

Charlie is survived by his children: Sharon (Ed Roop), Laurie (John Nicely), Dan, Lynne (Will Reid) and Gary (Lily Ortega); his grandchildren, Dominic, Charlotte, Alex, Christa, Owen, Danny and Mia; great-grandchildren Dominic and Victor; as well as his sister Edna Mae Lieb and many nieces and nephews. He will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by them all.
