He was the husband of the late Esther (Stoneback) Mollenhauer, who died in 2007. Mr. Mollenhauer was born July 19, 1918 at 347 Delaware Avenue in Lansdale, the home of his grandfather, well-known local builder and Fire Chief, John B. Detwiler. He was the son of the late Fred Mollenhauer, who was in France with the AEF during World War II at the time of his birth, and Lettie (Detwiler) Mollenhauer.
