Clair L. Witmer, 78, of East Earl, PA, went to heaven after a brief illness on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at his home per his wishes. Born at home in Earl Township, he was the son of the late Harvey L. and Elsie V. (Weaver) Witmer. He was the husband of Dorothy (Dot) J. Bauer Witmer, who pre-deceased him in March, 2018.
Clair was a member of the first graduating class of Garden Spot High School's new building and proudly served in the US Army from 1964 - 1966.
He attended First Baptist Church of New Holland with Dot.
Clair was a hard-working man his entire life, even working up until the time of his illness. He worked for Ix’s Silk Mill, Mrs. Smith Pies, Armstrong Cork Company, PA Scale Company, Baldwin Electric, and most recently at New Holland Auto Group. Clair was also a long-standing member of the New Holland Legion.
Clair loved to go out to eat with family and friends. Not many people know that Clair enjoyed to putt balls around a golf course. Dot and Clair enjoyed playing games and cards with close friends. They also enjoyed going to yard sales, breakfast before Sunday Worship, and Clair loved to collect duck decoys.
Clair is survived by two daughters from his first marriage to the late Raynel Peters: Cori Witmer and Darbi Witmer (Loren Miraglia) and two grandchildren Adam Helman and Teagan Miraglia. He is also survived by siblings Galen (Judy), Lamar (Elaine), Judy (Jim Williams), Joan (Ralph Weaver), Anita and Neal (Helen), as well as many nieces and nephews. Clair was preceded in death by a brother Pherl.
Per Clair’s wishes, there will be no viewing. A memorial service will be held on Friday, October 2, 2020 at 10:30 AM at Weaverland Anabaptist Faith Community, 210 Weaverland Valley Road, East Earl, PA. Interment with military honors will follow in the adjoining cemetery.

What a great guy Clair was! We worked together at Pennsylvania Scale Company. I always thought highly of him and of course lost touch through the years. So glad to see he found happiness and went on to live a great life. "Well done good and faithful Servant!" - Rob Woodward

My sincere condolences to Clair's family and friends on his passing from a fellow Class of '60 graduate. I remember Clair as a quiet, truly kind, soft spoken friend of everyone in our class. I was fortunate to have chatted on occasion with Clair while my car was being serviced at New Holland Auto. He will be missed by all whose lives he touched. God bless you all.
