Charles Steinbrenner
World War II Veteran

Charles E. Steinbrenner, 91, Dorrance Township, died Nov. 4, 2015, at his home, with his family by his side.

Born in Wilkes-Barre on Dec. 28, 1923, he was the son of the late Charles and Lucy (Sites) Steinbrenner. He was educated in Wright Township, and served in the Air Force, during World War II, from 1943 to 1946.

After an honorable discharge, “Bud” was self-employed as a carpenter. He belonged to the Carpenter’s Union Local 645, and had recently received an award for 65 years of membership.

Charlie was a member of St. James Lutheran Church, Hobbie, where he volunteered his carpentry skills to build many things, from closet shelves, to hymnal holders, to the cross on the altar.

He loved to spend time riding his John Deere three-wheeler, especially while doing chores and projects.

Charles is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Alice M. (Stein) Steinbrenner; daughter, Anna M. White and husband, John, Dorrance; sisters, Elsie Orman, Levittown; Ruth Rhuloff, New Jersey; and Arlene Diettrich, Orangeville; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his brothers, John, Donald and Marvin, and sisters, Florence, Mary, Jean, Betty, Pearl, Madeline and Dorothy.

Memorial contributions may be made in his memory to the St. James Lutheran Church Building Fund, 827 E. County Road, Wapwallopen, PA 18660.
