Charles Russell Altland, Jr., went to be with the Lord on January 19, 2022.

He was born May 30, 1927, in York the son of the late Charles and Violet Altland of Dover.

He is survived by his wife   of 74 years, Gloria Smith Altland, of Dover. He is also survived by two children, LuAnn Altland (Edward Harbold) of Dillsburg and James Altland (Sue) of Vermont, and Steve Morret, son in law.  He was preceded in death by two children, Charlie Altland of Dover and Nancy Altland Morret of Dillsburg. Together they have many grandchildren and great-grandchildren in which they loved spending time with. 

Russ and Gloria were the proprietors of Dillsburg Sheet Metal Works where Russ spent most of his time. He was a good craftsman, knew his trade well and worked tirelessly helping others in the community with heating and plumbing problems. Russ was also a skilled sheet metal mechanic, installing many of the tin roofs in Dillsburg. His craft and his personality will be greatly missed.
