July 16, 1941 ~ January 10, 2022 (age 80)


Elmer William Trieschman, Sr. of Woodbine, MD passed away peacefully with family at his side on January 10, 2022. He is survived by his loving wife Jean Trieschman, children Cindy Trieschman-King (Wayne), of Owings, MD, Bill Trieschman (Teri) of Mount Airy, MD, Brian Trieschman (Laura) of Ellicott City, Mark Trieschman (Shelly) of Woodbine, Scott Trieschman (Tina) of Woodbine, MD, grandchildren, Billy, Brian, Mark, Samantha “Sam”, Chris, Brad, Brady, Sierra, Jordan, Kari, Casey, Tucker, Timmy, Kobe & great-grandchildren Ethan, Landan, Laci Rae, Colton, Ryker, Audrey, Riley, Charlee & one on the way.

He will be most remembered first and foremost for his love & pride for family….he adored each and every one of them & they have peace of mind with his passing knowing he loved them all with every ounce of his being, he beamed with pride each time he held a new grandchild & they adored him, his strong work ethic, great provider, his great personality, his sense of humor, his smile, his love for old cars… the faster the better, his great story telling, his support for all, his generosity, his love for all animals especially his beloved Wheaton Terrier, Clancie.

He married Jean Whiteford on July 4, 1959 (both 18 years old-high school sweethearts) from that day forward until his passing to heaven the two of them were inseparable-happily married for 62+ years, he loved her with all his heart. They had 5 children by the age of 27. He lived & breathed for his family. He owned & operated Caton Automotive in Baltimore which later moved to Laurel & was renamed Caton Auto Body and later he purchased Trieschman’s Lenny’s Towing. His sons had to coax him into retirement he loved to work (very rarely missed a day of work). After retirement he had many hobbies including spending time at his beach home in Fenwick Island, boating, camping, golfing, wood working, collecting antiques, gardening (he had a green thumb), dancing at weddings, playing cards, getting together with his “farmer buddies”, family holiday traditions. He will be missed by many…he was loved by every one who had the honor of meeting him.
