Harley C. BEIMLER Obituary
POQUOSON - Harley C. Beimler, 62, a native of Hampton and lifelong resident of Poquoson, passed away Sunday, April 17, 2011.
As a young man, he volunteered for the Poquoson Fire & Rescue Squad. After graduating from high school, Harley was drafted into the United States Army, before going to work for the City of Poquoson. Harley retired after 21 years of service from Poquoson Public Works, as a Maintenance Worker III (the highest degree). He enjoyed hanging out with his best friend, Russell; watching NASCAR racing; and supporting the Redskins. His smile and sense of humor will be greatly missed by a city who all knew and loved him.
Harley was preceded in death by his mother, Mildred Anne Cartwright; and father, Milton Edwin Beimler.
He is survived by his loving daughters, Carol Anne Beimler, and Teri Mae Beimler and boyfriend, Victor Schmidbauer (friend and caregiver to Harley); a grandson, Dylan Michael Charles Beimler; three brothers, Milton E. Beimler, Harold D. Beimler, and William J. Cartwright; four sisters, Sandra Paton, Lynn McClain, JoAnn DeBolt, and Sherry Stepp; nine nephews; 10 nieces; four great-nephews; four great-nieces; and his longtime "best friend," Russell Ruehl.
The family will receive friends from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home, Poquoson. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, at the funeral home, by Pastor Ken Coleman of Colonial Baptist Church. Burial will follow at 1 p.m., at the Albert G. Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery, Suffolk, with military honors.
