Eilenfeld, William  
William C. Eilenfeld MANSFIELD: William Charles Eilenfeld, passed away on January 29, 2016 at DeWolfe Place in Marion Ohio. He was born on January 11, 1928 in Akron, Ohio. He graduated from Mansfield St Peter's. When William was in High School, he quit after his junior year, joining the Navy for the last year of WWII. He patrolled the east cost of the USA in a sea plane, flying to Cuba many times. Upon the end of the war, he went back to school and obtained his diploma. He was called back to serve in the Navy when the Korean Conflict began. During this time, he was stationed out of Norfolk VA, touring the Mediterranean 2 times. He liked to tell people: 'I won both wars for you'. He additionally served in the Army Reserves out of Camp Perry and obtained the rank of second Lieutenant. William was a character. He was outspoken, brash, funny, intelligent, and many times a real pain. He always liked to be in control issuing instructions, letting people know where they were supposed to be and at what time. God forbid if you were late! He loved to cook and attend social functions. He was asked many times to cook steamship rounds or entire pigs for picnics. He could make an entire room of people laugh until tears rolled down their checks with his deadpan antics. He was extremely knowledgeable about many things, but he never volunteered this knowledge. You always had to ask. William always enjoyed a warm glass of beer, and a hot summer day. He was a contractor most of his life selling industrial air conditioning, but he hated to be in a building with it running, or even worse have a fan blow on him. He despised winter and had an on-going joke with Rose at Chase Bank about who was going to shovel whose snow. Bill was a very good artist, as was his wife. They had many heated discussions about coloring and shading techniques, usually resulting in Dorothy stomping out of the room mumbling under her breath something about a donkey's behind. William was a member of the Amvets, a lifetime member of the VFW, a member of the Liederkranz, and a lifelong member of the Knights of Columbus. William married Dorothy Dalenberg on November 28, 1952 while on leave from the Navy. They were married 59 years, before her death in 2011. He has three children; three grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. He is survived by daughter, Debra (Patrick) O'Brien; sons, Thomas Eilenfeld (partner Darlene Landry) and William (Christine) Eilenfeld; grandsons, Matthew (Audrey) O'Brien, Kelly (Jammi) O'Brien; and granddaughter, Carol (Peter) Lehman; great granddaughters, Regan and Kaitlyn O'Brien; and great grandson, Kellen O'Brien. William was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy; brothers, Albert (Beverly) and Edward (Marion) Eilenfeld; sisters, Marie (Bob) Pealer, Betty (Jack) Hahn, and Rebecca (Mike) Snyder; and his parents, Albert and Elsie Eilenfeld. Friends may call at Herlihy-Chambers Funeral Home, 173 Park Avenue West, on Tuesday from 2-4 and 6-8pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 10:00am Wednesday at St. Peter's Catholic Church with Fr. Jeremy Miller officiating. Burial will follow in Mansfield Catholic Cemetery with military honors. Contributions to the Alzheimer's Foundation would be greatly appreciated. www.herlihy-chambers.com
