Obituary for Charles R. Hildebrand

Charles Hildebrand, 82, of Spinnerstown and formerly of Skippack, passed away peacefully on July 15, 2019 surrounded by family and friends, following a recent decline in health.

He was born to the late Lillian Mae (Hilles) Hildebrand and Ralph Wallace Hildebrand on May 10th, 1937. He lived most of his life in Skippack, where as a child he was well known for making mischief. As an adult, he co-operated Hildebrand Antiques and a well-known Christmas tree lot.

In his heart Charlie was a horseman, loving nothing more than being in the barn or at the track. He was a licensed United States Trotting Association (USTA) Owner, Trainer and Driver. “Charlie Dollar” and “Yankee Flowers” were some of his most prized horses. He enjoyed betting on anything with odds and saw little point in watching sports if not wagering.

He was the proud and loving father to Sharon Bixler (Bill) of Mechanicsburg, PA and Renee Hagerty (Larry) of Highland Park, IL; and Pop-Pop to grandchildren Tyler and Ryan Bixler, Trent and Lauren Hagerty. He is preceded in death by his former wife, Antoinette (Fiorentino) Hildebrand (2015).

In addition to his immediate family, Bones, as he was also known, leaves behind extended family and life-long friends. Your friendship brightened his days.

We would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at LifeQuest Nursing Center and the St. Luke’s Hospice Care Team who were patient and supportive in caring for our father.

At the request of the family, services will be private. We do however hope you will share a story of Charlie, enjoy a Philly soft pretzel, or buy a scratch-off lottery ticket in his memory.

Your father was an amazing man. It was a pleasure to know him and take care of him. I will miss him everyday and his jokes and offers of pretzels and snacks.

Well, Bonsey, you and I had a great childhood together in Skippack. We were known as the Skippack Hellions, but we sure ran that town. lol. Remember Nanny always stuck up for us whenever someone would tell her we did something bad. My fondest memories are when Nanny and Pop Pop owned the store and post-office.and we would go in and open up those big barrels full of brown sugar (you dummy, no wonder you got diabetes), you were always going into them and bringing out a hand full of brown sugar. Oh my what a wonderful growing up life we had. Well, now you are gone and have left me with so many wonferful memories. I will miss you, but I will be coming up there with you some day. Maybe God will be able to control us. lol. Love you Bonsey.
