Alfred Baldwin

AGE: 77 • Wilmington

Alfred Baldwin, 77 of Wilmington, DE, passed away on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at the Heartland Hospice House.

Al was born and raised in Wilmington and was proud to be a lifelong Delawarean. He was a 1957 graduate of Salesianum High School and a US Army Veteran, serving from 1959 - 1964. Upon his discharge he began his career as a lab technician for the Delaware State Hospital, ultimately retiring as Director of Lab Technicians.

Al was proud of his Irish heritage; was a fan of happy war songs, sad love songs and rowdy drinking songs. He had a contagious sense of humor. He will be deeply missed.

Al is survived by his beloved wife, Elaine (Schauber) Baldwin; his sons, Terrence and Kevin Baldwin and his wife, Stella; his granddaughters, Bridget and Kenna and their mother, Wendy Baldwin; and his grandson, Brandon Baldwin.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph Ellsworth and Sarah Ann (McDermott) Baldwin.

Family and friends are invited to visit on Wednesday, October 26, 2016, from 5:00 - 7:00pm at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Road, Wilmington, DE 19808.

Interment will follow in the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
