Charles R. Wieand

Born November 17, 1977

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.

  • 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”

  • I never thought I would be writing this, its 2023 and I still miss you everyday. Maybe no one cares anymore but you were the best dad i could ask for, through our ups and downs i appreciate everything we went through. All the hard times we went through made me. Life aint fair you always told me that but life isn’t fair. I have a baby now, his name is Charles. I wish you could’ve met but God had other plans. Nobody knew you like i did we went through it all together and i know you loved me but i just wish you realized a lot more of that when you were here, with me. I think i struggle the most with it because everyone else acts like it never happened or it doesn’t matter. but it does to me. I was only 16. so much of what you did changed everything for me. I have crazy ass diagnosis that i cant formulate how they relate to me, but they do. I’m really struggling and I don’t think i would be if you were still here with me. You’re my favorite person and you always will be. This just goes to show how everyone can LOVE you and you still feel so alone. I’ll forever check this page just because i still cant believe you’re gone, never answering the phone never texting me back never going to see me get married one day never going to meet your grandson never going to be able to put your foot up your sons ass. God gives you exactly what you ask for, just not the way you ask for it. I’m sorry i took the time with you for granted and pushed you away. I was dealing with things the way i felt necessary. I just loved you too much i didn’t want you to hurt me anymore. Now your gone and I’m stuck here, without you. Your phone cut off some time ago and someone new got your number. There’s no way heaven needed you more than i do.
