Charles T. Gindhart, Jr., 89, of Bellefonte, passed away on Monday, January 28, 2019, at home surrounded by his family. Born in Philadelphia on September 12, 1929, he was the son of the late Charles Gindhart, Sr. and Florence (Kinsella) Gindhart.

After two years in the US Army, he attended photographic school and eventually began a career in the emerging Philadelphia television and film industry. As a film cameraman for WCAU-TV, he worked with nationally-known personalities such as Jack Whitaker, Imogene Coca, Ed McMahon, and John Facenda. Following his time at WCAU he worked in a variety of roles in the film and video industry, culminating in his role as project manager for Johnson Controls Government Systems at Fort Dix, NJ. Charles and Mary were active in the pro-life movement in Philadelphia.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by four sons, Paul Gindhart (Naomi) of Huntsville, AL, Stephen Gindhart (Margaret) of Haverford, PA, John Gindhart (Andrea) of Bellefonte, and David Gindhart (Julie) of Port Matilda.
