Obituary

Walter David Eisenhower, Jr., 91, formerly of Audubon, PA, passed away, May 18, 2019 at Luther Acres Manor. Born in Reading, he was a son of the late Walter D. Eisenhower, Sr. and Pearl (Hauder) Eisenhower. He was the devoted husband of the late Eleanor Komlodi Eisenhower. In his late 80's, he stayed by his wife’s side through a very lengthy illness. Walter is survived by his son W. David III husband of Maria Bertucci of Philadelphia, and three daughters, Deborah Volker of York, Diana Hughes wife of Glenn of Lancaster and Julia Gustafson wife of Grant of Long Beach, California. Also surviving are eight grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; his brother Gerald and sister Mary. He was predeceased by his daughter Eileen and his brother Kenneth.
Walter graduated from Reading High School in 1945. He earned a B.S. in Chemistry from Albright College which led to his career in semiconductor engineering. He was a significant developer of the 6502 chip which ran the first Apple computers, the Commodore 64 and Atari games. It is still widely used today. ("Team 6502", a website dedicated to the team that developed the chip will be available this summer.)
Walter was a dedicated family man, avid storyteller and ice cream enthusiast. He was generous and glad to lend a helping hand whenever needed. He loved music and enjoyed singing with the choir at St Andrews Lutheran Church in Audubon, where he was an active member for 47 years.
Visitation with family and friends will be held on Friday May 24, 2019, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am with services beginning at 11:00 in Lutz Funeral Home, Inc., 2100 Perkiomen Ave., Reading.

Heartfelt sympathy from our whole family to all the Eisenhower family. Walter and Eleanor were among our oldest and best friends. They were especially kind to Janet during her sicknesses. Our families stayed close even with our various physical moves over the years. While we were not as close recently, as our children grew and made their own families, we always treasured the fond memories of our time with Walter and Eleanor and their wonderful family.
