Carl R. Windmiller Retired restaurateur

November 19, 1990

Services for Carl R. Windmiller Sr., a retired restaurant owner, will be at 11 a.m. today at St. Mark's United Methodist Church in Easton.

Mr. Windmiller, a resident of Easton, died Friday of cardiac arrest at University Hospital. He was 81.

A native of Philadelphia, Mr. Windmiller attended public schools and afterward worked with his sister in a family-owned restaurant in downtown Philadelphia.

He later owned and operated The English Pheasant restaurant in Philadelphia. The restaurant was sold in the early 1940s, and Mr. Windmiller began work as a machinist at the Sun Ship & Drydock Co. in Chester, Pa. In 1945, he moved to Easton, where he owned and operated Riley's Restaurant. In 1960, he opened Windy's Drive-In on U.S. 50.

Mr. Windmiller sold Riley's in 1962 but remained active in the operation of Windy's until its sale and his retirement in 1970.

He was very active in the Masons. He was a member and past master of Coats Lodge No. 102, A.F. & A.M., member and past high priest of Talbot Royal Arch Chapter No. 22, member and past master of Jeshua Council No. 8, Royal and Select Masons, and a member of Chesapeake Commandery No. 10 and the Boumi Temple.

Mr. Windmiller is survived by his wife of 40 years, the former Helen Dodd; two sons, Carl R. Windmiller Jr. and David H. Windmiller, both of Glen Burnie; seven grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.

The family suggests donations to the Talbot Heart Fund, P.O. Box 1895, Easton, Md. 21601.
