Christopher Detweiler died on Friday, November 30, 2012 in a tragic car accident. Chris Detweiler was born in Sellersville, Pennsylvania and graduated from Pennridge High School in 1988.
Chris married Sheri (Barndt) Detweiler from Souderton in 1996. Chris was a journeyman in the tool and die industry and later went into business for himself in the hauling and transport industry. Chris and Sheri are the proud parents of their daughter Tahlia, whom Chris referred to as his greatest achievement. They have a home in Harleysville.
Chris will be remembered for his zest for life and his entertaining commentary on life’s little pleasures. He was gifted in the Martial Arts, was a jack of all trades, always involved in “projects” around the house, and was constantly dreaming up “the next big thing”. He had many friends, a large extended family and a great dog named Nala that brought him much joy. Chris’s infectious personality and his exuberance will be missed by all who knew him.
He is survived by his wife, Sheri (Barndt) Detweiler and daughter Tahlia, his mom and dad, Jeanni e and Vern Detweiler, his brother Kevin Detweiler and sister in law Trish and their daughters Sarah and Melissa, his brother Chad Detweiler and his daughter Madison Bennett, and his brother Matt Detweiler and sister in law Linda Sue, and his wife’s family Jim and Pat Barndt, Cindy, John, Connor, and Alec Linse, and Connie Barndt and Guy LaRue, along with countless relatives and friends.
Memorial contributions may be made to the Tahlia Detweiler College Fund available through any branch of First Niagara Bank.
A memorial service will be held at Grace Bible Church, Main St. Souderton on Thursday, December 6th. Immediate family will greet guests starting at 6pm. Celebration Service will begin at 7pm. Light refreshments will follow the service.
