Eugene Witmer Obituary
YORK Eugene Witmer, 73, passed on Sunday, May 4, 2014, at the York Hospital. He was the husband of Madelyn M. Gross (Witmer) with whom he shared 43 years of marriage. Born on October 11, 1940, in York, he was the son of the late Henrietta (Mickey) and Edward Witmer. "Gene", as he was fondly known, retired from the Maple Press Co. as a tow motor operator after 32 years of service. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, and he loved antique cars and trains. His presence will be deeply missed by his family and friends. Gene leaves to cherish his memory his wife, Madelyn; a daughter, Jeanie Quillen (husband Kelvin); four stepchildren, Kay Boyd (husband Jeff), Kerry Edleblute, Keith Edleblute, and Kevin Edleblute; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews; and siblings, Evelyn Witmer, Rosetta Grant, Alberta Hoover, and Lloyd Witmer. He was preceded in death by a brother, Preston Witmer, and a daughter-in-law, Sharon Edleblute. Interment will be at the convenience of the family. Gladfelter Funeral Home, Inc., York, is entrusted with the arrangements.
