Charles R. Wieand
“Chuck”

November 17, 1977 – August 27, 2016

Charles R. Wieand, fondly known as “Chuck,” age 38, of New Castle, DE, passed away on Saturday, August 27, 2016.

A lifelong Delawarean, Chuck was born in Wilmington on November 17, 1977 and was a son of Alvin L. Wieand, Sr. and the late Jean E. (Maxwell) Wieand. A machinist by trade and meticulous in his craft, Chuck took great pride in his work and absolutely loved his profession.

He was actively involved in all aspects of the New Castle Little League including playing in his younger years and then coaching and umpiring as an adult. Chuck adored spending time with his children, whether he was working on and riding dirt bikes with Blaine, having a catch or a conversation with Alizabeth, playing baseball or basketball with Cameron or just sharing a laugh with Kailynn, he was happiest in their company. He was a devoted family man who will be remembered for his big heart and warm smile and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his father, Alvin, Sr.; wife, Shannon C. (Carter) Wieand; children, Alizabeth and Blaine Wieand and Cameron and Kailynn Collins; brothers, Alvin L. Wieand, Jr. (Amy Silvestri) and Kevin M. Wieand (April); sister, Barbara Parker; and many adoring nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held 6 pm on Thursday evening, September 1, 2016, at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE 19720, where a visitation will be held from 4 pm until 6 pm. Interment will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Chuck’s memory may be made to the Alizabeth and Blaine Wieand Education Fund, c/o Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, at the address listed above.

    only you would know how much you ment to me. You were not a friend you were far more as a brother we were just as close as family if not more in some instances. Chuck I love you brother and would never thought I’d be writing something as this in this very moment. So many questions run ramped through my mind that I know will go unanswered. So many memories that only you and I know and understand.I’m just happy I had the time with you that I did only wish that there were more to share with you in our later years.RIP my brother some things will never go away and be forgotten something like this is one of those things that I will spend the rest of my life learning to live with. I love you brother.

    My freind Chucky. This just became very real reading your obituary. We haven’t seen each other in sometime but when we did run into each other we chatted like we never missed a beat. I’m so sorry things ended so tragically. My freind only if you could see how much you are loved and missed by so many, maybe I wouldn’t be writing this. I will always call you my freind and remember your goofy laugh and great smile. Fly high Chucky!! Watch over your children and family. They are so heartbroken. Rest in paradise Chucky!! Pam

    Chuck I known you ever since you were little because you lived 2 doors up. You will be missed not just by me, but everyone that you ever came in contact with throughout your life. Now you’re with your mom again. And now you will have Willy Wonka with you since he past today to make you smile. See you when I get there. And to the family if there is anything I can do just let me know and I’m there..

    You Friend for Life,

    We are deeply sorry for your family’s loss. Over the past year and a half, our family got to know Chuck and his family. Our daughter Mackenzie and Kailynn have become the best of friends..

    Losing someone so tragic is a very hard thing to accept and deal with. Questions you may have are never answered. I hope God gives you all the strength you need to get through this. Chuck will be missed by many.

    Chuck will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. His smile and bare chest were always in place at New Castle Little League where he treated EVERY SINGLE CHILD as his own, and ALWAYS encouraged and supported them to do their best – but more importantly HAVE FUN doing it! He would argue his point until people conceded to shut him up. HAHA He will always be remembered for his charming smile and lovable personality. RIP Chuckles!

    Thank you to everyone for your kind words and your condolences during this difficult time. I Absolutely know that Chuck would be so touched to know that he had such an impact on so many lives. He was a family man and loved all the moments and memories he had with our 4 kids, his siblings, nieces and nephews and his whole extended family of kids that he payed with and watch grow up. Please keep his memories close and share his stories with all of us when we see each other.
    Until we see each other again Chuck, love you always, Love Your “Nanin”
