Berwyn S. Detweiler
Passed: Tuesday July 25, 2017

Berwyn S. Detweiler, Jr., 90, of Uniontown, passed away peacefully on July 25, 2017 at Hillside Manor. He was born October 14, 1926, in Uniontown, son of the late Berwyn S. Sr. & Mary Lyndall Jamison Detweiler. Berwyn graduated from Uniontown High School in 1944 and from Potomac State with a degree in Business Administration. He was a veteran of World War II proudly serving in the United States Army. He was an active member of Asbury United Methodist Church where he served for many years as head usher and was a member of the choir. He was a member of Laurel Lodge #651 F & AM, Uniontown, Pittsburgh Consistory and the Syria Shrine Caravan #9. His father was an early pioneer in the car business in Fayette County and Berwyn joined his father, spending 70 years in the family-owned business. He owned and operated Berwyn S. Pontiac for many years. Many people will miss seeing him sitting outside the garage reading the newspaper or doing a crossword puzzle. He enjoyed watching the Pirates and auto racing, playing cards, and also enjoyed a beer every now and then. Preceding him in death were his parents, siblings Phil Detweiler, Marilyn Penney and Nelson Detweiler and grandchildren Bryan Scott Detweiler and Abbe McCann. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Lois Hall Detweiler, four children, B. Scott (Barbara) Detweiler, Mark A. (Anne) Detweiler, Lori A.

His grandchildren, Jarred (Ashli) Detweiler, Bethel Park, PA, Jayme (Ryan) Crowell, Canfield, OH, Kathryn McCann, Henrico, VA, Dayne Detweiler, Houston, TX, and Corey McCann, Greenville, SC. He leaves behind one great grandson, Collins Detweiler and a great granddaughter arriving soon. He is survived by two brothers, Herb (Judy) Detweiler, of Virginia and Alan (Sandra) Detweiler of Uniontown. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
