Walter George Bruhl, Jr.
Newark & Dewey Beach
Walter George Bruhl, Jr. of Newark and Dewey Beach, DE is no more, he is bereft of life, he is deceased, he has expired and gone to meet his maker. He drifted off this mortal coil on March 9, 2014 in Punta Gorda, Florida. His spirit was released from his worn out shell of a body and is now exploring the universe.
He was surrounded by his loving wife of 57 years, Helene Sellers Bruhl. He is also survived by his son, Walter III, wife Melissa; daughters, Carly and Paige and son, Martin, wife Debra; son, Sam and daughter, Kalla. Walt loved and enjoyed his grandkids.
He was born in Phila. PA. on April 20, 1933 to Blanche Buckman Bruhl and Walter George Bruhl. He drifted through the Philadelphia Public School System graduating from John Bartram High School in 1951. Walter was a Marine Corps Veteran of the Korean War having served from 1951 to 1954, with overseas duty in Japan. He was employed by the late great DuPont company for 32 years.
Everyone who remembers him is asked to celebrate Walt's life in their own way, raising a glass of their favorite drink in his memory would be quite appropriate. Instead of flowers, Walt would hope that you will do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for some poor unfortunate soul in his name. A memorial luncheon in Walt's honor will be held on Saturday, March 15 at 1PM at Deerfield, Newark, DE.
