Carl E. Hilbert, age 82, died Friday, November 3, 2017 surrounded by his family at Christiana Hospital.

Carl was a licensed Professional Engineer, working with DuPont for over 40 years. He wasn’t one to sit idle, so in retirement he began a second career as Director of Physical Plant at Winterthur, a job he enjoyed for nearly 10 years. Carl loved and ministered to people through his role as Elder at Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Newark.

Carl is survived by the love of his life for 57 years, Betty; sons Jay and his wife Donna of Owings Mills, MD, and Tim and his wife Beth of Mason, OH; and grandchildren Tyler, Kristine, and Torey.

Another viewing will be offered Friday, November 10, at 10 am at Evangelical Presbyterian Church, 308 Possum Park Rd., Newark, DE with a funeral service at 11 am. Interment will follow the service in Head of Christiana Cemetery. All are welcome to return to the church for a luncheon afterwards.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made in Carl’s name to Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
