Robert Maile, 93, a lifelong resident of Lancaster, died peacefully on Tuesday, May 7 at his home.

The son of Frank and Bessie Maile, Robert’s professional career included being part of the RCA team that developed the color TV picture tube. He retired after 40 years, as a senior electrical equipment designer.

He was married to Quebec native Gisele Maile for 48 years, until her death in 1998. The romantic story of how Robert and Gisele first met is a family favorite.

An avid woodworker, he designed and built many beautiful pieces of furniture and clocks for family and friends throughout his life. When he wasn’t creating in his workshop, he would often be on the road with his wife, traveling throughout New England and Quebec.

He is survived by his brother, Donald Maile, his four children, Nicole Maile, Jean Reese (spouse of Jeffrey Reese), Steven Maile and Michelle Downey (spouse of the late William Downey), seven grand-children and six great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice & Community Care of Lancaster County. Per his wishes, there will be no service.
