C. Lloyd Treichler, who managed a family greenhouse and dairy stand, died Wednesday (Sept. 27, 2000) in Mount St. Mary's Hospital, Lewiston, after a brief illness. He was 91.
His father, Charles, was the first florist in Sanborn, and Treichler eventually managed C.F. Treichler Greenhouses. He sold the business in 1976 when he retired, but he continued to work there part time until his death.
In his youth, he learned to play the piano, and he played in the Sanborn Firemen's Band, leading it for a time.
He later nurtured his interest in photography and home movies and built a darkroom in his house.
Treichler learned to fly a biplane in 1927 in Iowa and, returning to Sanborn, enjoyed many years of pleasure flights in the Niagara region.
From 1957 to 1965, he and his wife operated Aunt Jennie's Dairette from the family home at Routes 31 and 425.
Treichler was president of the Sanborn Lions Club in the late 1950s and was a member of the Ransomville Masonic Temple.
Survivors include his wife of 64 years, the former Jennie E. Myers; two sons, David H. of South Lake, Texas, and Charles L.; three daughters, Judy A. Pratz of Lockport, Karen I. of Clifton Springs and Rita M. Conrise of Victor; 10 grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
Services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday in Rhoney Funeral Home, 5893 Hoover Road. Burial will be in Acacia Park Cemetery, Pendleton.
