Albert John Fleischut Jr. Obituary
Albert John Fleischut, Jr.

AGE: 94 • Wilmington

Age 94, of Wilmington, formerly of Newport, DE, passed away on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at Compassionate Care Hospice surrounded by his family.

Born in Bush River, MD, Albert was the son of the late Lillian (McLaughlin) and Albert John Fleischut, Sr. He served his country proudly in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He worked at the DuPont Company Edgemoor Plant as maintenance supervisor for 35 years and was a lifetime member of the Minguas Fire Department. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed life, hunting, fishing, crabbing and RV traveling from coast to coast. He wintered in Florida for15 years. He especially enjoyed his family and the time spent hunting and fishing with his sons and his grandson. Later in life he loved yard sales and puzzles. When home, he could be found in his beloved garage, fixing and repairing anything neighbors, friends and family brought to him. There was nothing he wouldn't attempt to fix. When the garage door was open, it was like an open house for people to stop and talk and share their thoughts.

In addition to his parents, Albert was predeceased by his wife of 50 years, Doris Neumann Fleischut, his brother, Francis Fleischut and his companion, Elizabeth Donohue.

He will be dearly missed by his sons and daughters-in-law, Albert "Bud" Fleischut and Susan E. Wainwright and Jeff and Kathy Fleischut; three grandchildren, Brian Fleischut, Jeffrey Fleischut (Sherry) and Kimberly Linetty (Adam); and two great grandchildren, Makenzie and Jake Fleischut. Also surviving are three step grandchildren, Heather Higgins, Scott Muterspaw and Michele Anderson; and a step great granddaughter, Maddie.

Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, January 31st at 11 AM at Mealey Funeral Home, 2509 Limestone Road, Wilmington where visitation will begin after 10 AM. Burial will follow at Gracelawn Memorial Park, New Castle, DE.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the , 630 Churchmans Road #202, Newark, DE 19702. Online condolences may be made at (302) 652-5913
