NESTLE FAMILY LOSES A MEMBER – TWO DAYS AFTER CLOSING, CARL WILTSE, HANNIBAL FARMER AND 37-YEAR EMPLOYEE, DIED.

Post-Standard, The (Syracuse, NY) – May 7, 2003

Saturday, the day after Nestle closed its Fulton chocolate plant, workers gathered one last time at a picnic. They thought it would be a while before they got together again, but it won’t.

They will gather later this week to say goodbye to Carl N. Wiltse, a Hannibal farmer and 37-year Nestle employee who lost his job Friday. Wiltse, 59, died Sunday.

Calling hours are scheduled from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Foster Funeral Home, 837 Cayuga St., Hannibal. Wiltse’s funeral is set for 11 a.m. Friday at the funeral home. He will be buried in Hannibal Village Cemetery on West Street.

Kristen Wiltse, 20, said her father was in Rochester when he died, and the family is awaiting more information about the cause of his death. Some of his friends from Nestle said they have heard Wiltse suffered a heart attack.

“I saw Carl on Saturday at the Nestle get-together. I shook his hand. He looked so healthy. I can’t believe he’s gone,” said Thomas Bergman Sr., of Fulton, who worked at Nestle for 29 years.

About 275 people attended the chicken barbecue at the Fulton Elks Lodge, where they reminisced with friends before heading on with life.

“Carl just said, “I hope you have a good life.’ I said the same to him, “I hope you have a good life.’ But only if I’d known,” Bergman said.

Bergman said he wondered if the stress of the closing may have contributed to Wiltse’s death.

“He didn’t take it very well when Nestle closed,” Bergman said. “He took it like a man, but it hurt. It hurt us all.”

Wiltse started working at Nestle in 1963, then quit six years later. A year later, Wiltse and his wife, Marie, opened Wiltse’s Fruit Farm on state Route 104 in Hannibal. Since his family was growing, Wiltse decided to return to Nestle in 1972.

“He promised he’d only be there for one year,” his wife said, “but he’s been there ever since.”

Carl and Marie Wiltse had five children: Laura, 32, Michele, 31, Timothy, 29, Susan, 23, and Kristen. While they were growing up, Carl Wiltse juggled family life and his work on the farm and at Nestle’s refining department.

“He was up early every morning, doing chores on the farm, like feeding the sheep, horses, deer and llama,” Kristen Wiltse said.

“He took care of everything. During the harvest season, he’d pick apples with the family and migrant workers. He’d truck apples to the food-processing plants, and he always took care of the whole family,” she said. “I was lucky. When I was little, I got to spend a lot of time with him.”

Marie Wiltse, interviewed a week before her husband died, said her family depended on his paychecks from Nestle when hailstorms and bad weather damaged their crop.

“Nestle has made it easier for us,” she said.

When Wiltse’s Fruit Farm grew sweet cider and pumpkins in the fall, Carl Wiltse donated some to Nestle’s Halloween parties, his family said. The farm also once grew squash, onions, cauliflower, gourds, Indian corn, potatoes and homemade jams. Recently, Wiltse was trying to put together a fish hatchery, which had yet to open. He also owned and operated Nine Mile Creek Aqua Recreational Farm in Hannibal.

“He was the head of the business…,” Kristen Wiltse said. “The farm’s future is uncertain. He was the one who kept things running.”
