Tyrone Pinder


Age 76, of Claymont, DE, passed away on July 8, 2016 at home.

He was born on April 13, 1940 in Chesapeake City, MD to the late Allen Bates Pinder and Helen Robinson Marshall.

Clif was a retired welder and worked for Sun Shipbuilding and Helmark Steel. He was an avid crabber and boater who loved spending time with his family and enjoyed woodworking, gun collecting, metal detecting, music, Family Feud and anything to do with pirates. Clif always had jokes to tell and made friends everywhere he went. He was a wonderful father, grandfather, "BoBo" and friend, and is deeply missed by many.

Surviving to cherish Clif's memory are his daughter, Julie Ann Pinder (Chris Caputo) of Newark; daughter, Susan Kowalski and grandchildren, Andrew Kowalski and Alison Kowalski all of Elsmere; Clif's longtime companion of 28 years, Cheryl Bartholomew, her daughter, Traci Wick (Paul) and their children, Kyle, Haas, Hailee and LeeAnna, all of Claymont; and uncle, Douglas "Gene" Robinson of Wilmington. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Allen and Larry Pinder and his stepfather, William Marshall, all of Port Penn, DE.

A celebration of Clif's life will be 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Thursday, July 14, 2016 at Schoenberg Memorial Chapel, 519 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, DE 19809. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Delaware Humane Society (
