Carl R. Windmiller

November 19, 1990

Carl R. Windmiller Sr., a retired restaurant owner, died Friday of cardiac arrest at University of Maryland Medical Center. He was 81 and lived in Easton.

Services for Mr. Windmiller were being held today at St. Mark's United Methodist Church in Easton.

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.

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.
