Erwin Aldinger

Born in Philadelphia and raised in Lower Moreland, in high school, he met his future wife Barbara. Together they forged close friendships with Lower Moreland classmates, meeting frequently with them, even to today.

Erv graduated from Lehigh University, with a degree in business administration, where he made lifelong friends among his Delta Upsilon fraternity brothers. He later earned a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Delaware.

He was among the first generation of computer software engineers, working at DuPont for his entire career.

Following retirement, he continued to pursue his love of the stock market, trading constantly and sharing his knowledge with his daughter Betsy. He had a passion for automobiles, learning to drive at age 10, competing in autocross and rallies, and passing that interest on to his son Karl.

Erv was an extremely warm and loving person, and despite many years of disability, he kept a very positive outlook on life, trading sports cars for a power wheelchair with incredible strength of character.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara, who was also his full-time caregiver for many years, his son Karl, his son-in-law Michael, and daughter-in-law Marie-Pierre.
