Obituary for Emil A. Maikner

November 14, 2018
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Emil A. Maikner, of Philadelphia, passed away on November 14, 2018, at the age of 43. Emil is survived by his beloved parents Emil and Anna Marie Maikner and his loving sister Jennifer Maikner-Sablich (Bill). He was the loving uncle of Conor, Catherine and Kyle. He is also survived by his aunt, uncle and loving cousins. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Frank and Catherine Clark and Emil and Katherine Maikner.

Emil was a loving and devoted son, brother and uncle and a loyal friend to many. He grew up in the Olney area and moved to Pine Valley where he attended Archbishop Ryan High School. At Ryan, he was an All Catholic soccer player.

Through hard work and dedication, Emil succeeded in his own Tastykake distribution business. It was through this business that Emil demonstrated his love of people and his generous spirit shined through to all who came to know him. He was well known in the Northeast area and loved by not only his customers, but others who he found to be in need. Many people were the recipients of his generosity. It was not unlike him to give away anything that he had to help another.
Emil had many lifelong loyal friends who he loved and who shared his sense of humor and his comical stories. He will be truly missed.

Relatives and friends are invited to share in Emil's Life Celebration Tuesday, November 20th starting 9:00 AM followed by his memorial mass at 10:30 AM at St Hilary of Poitiers Church 920 Susquehanna Rd., Rydal Pa 19046.
