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.
