CARL F. ADLER Obituary
Age 87, of Richland, peacefully at home, on June 1, 2014. Beloved husband of the late Patricia Ann (Kiefer) Adler; also preceded by one son, the late William Adler; and one brother, the late Walter Adler. Loving father of Carl (Bonnie) Adler, Jr., Joyce (Todd) Ziegler, Shirley Ann (John) Smelko, Daniel (Lisa) Adler, and Patty Ann (Dave) Geyer; proud grandfather of 22 grandchildren and 15 great- grandchildren. Friends welcome Wednesday 2-8 p.m. at SCHELLHAAS FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICES, 5864 Heckert Rd., Bakerstown. Funeral Mass Thursday at 10 a.m. in St. Richard Church. A WWII Marine veteran, Carl served as a medic entering active duty at age 17. Like his father before him, he went on to become a brew master for various breweries across the country before working with Fort Pitt Brewing in Sharpsburg and ultimately Iron City Brewing in Lawrenceville until his retirement. His greatest passions were brewing beer, the outdoors, camping, and collecting wild mushrooms. Carl also was a longtime and devoted member of St. Richard Church, where he served as a Eucharistic Minister in addition to many other involvements. Above all, he loved being a father and grandfather and carried tremendous pride for his especially large family. He will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to St. Richard Church, c/o Guatemala Mission Group, 3841 Dickey Road, Gibsonia, PA 15044.
