Charles “Bud” Hiester, 77, U.S. Navy, ARCO worker
Charles Elias "Bud" Hiester, 77, of Landisville, died Thursday, April 18, 2013 at the home of his daughter.
Born July 10, 1935 in Adamstown, Bud was the son of Walter and Margaret Coldren Hiester. He was married to Anna Elizabeth Howe Hiester for 41 years. She died in 2006.
Bud was a 1953 graduate of Ephrata Senior High School where he played football and tennis and was on the student council.
Bud proudly served in the United States Navy from 1954-1958. After his discharge he worked at Hamilton Equipment in Ephrata before moving on to ARCO pipeline to work as a meter proving technician. He retired in 1995.
Surviving Charles are his daughter and son-in-law: Lisa Hiester McElroy and Jay McElroy, Landisville, with whom he resided since 2005. He is also survived by his three grandchildren: Alexander Neil, Colleen Estelle and Wesley Charles McElroy. He also has two remaining brothers: Donald Hiester and Carl Hiester; and a surviving sister: Lucy Hiester Becker, all residents of Lancaster County. Preceding him in death are two sisters: Catherine Hiester and Dolores Hiester Martin and four brothers: Harold Hiester, Eugene Hiester, Glenn Hiester and Gerald Hiester.
Bud enjoyed playing cards with his family and in his younger years, was an avid bowler and shuffleboard player.
His big laugh, cowboy hats and teasing manner will be missed.
The family would like to thank Hospice of Lancaster County, especially Heidi, Rachel, and dad’s favorite, Mandy, for their long, unwavering support while we cared for dad at home. You are invaluable.
A very special thank you to Jen Eckles, Avie Eckles and Michael Kelly, your daily and weekend care for dad made it possible for us to keep him at home. Your patience and caring are deeply appreciated.
A memorial service will be private at the convenience of the family. Memorials in Bud’s memory may be sent to Hospice and Community Care, P.O. Box 4125 Lancaster, PA 17604.
Arrangements by Roseboro Stradling Funeral & Cremation Services, Inc., Denver. Online condolences can be given at roseborostradling.com.
