Beloved Husband, Father, Poppy, Uncle, and Friend entered paradise on January 18, 2021, at the age of 85. He was married to the love of his life, Christine, for 61 years. Full of charm and class, he spent his life in the hotel industry working in London, NYC, New England, Florida, and Bermuda. He touched the lives of hundreds of employees, but especially the thousands of guests that were invited to Friday cocktail parties hosted by he and Christine that became the highlight of their Bermuda vacation. He always had time to listen, and if asked would dispense advice filled with wisdom, love, and strength. His wife, children, and grandchildren were always foremost in his mind. Such a sweet man who enjoyed desserts the most, the cherry on top being a great-grandchild in 2019. Let’s not forget the amazing brother-in-law he was to four sisters; a job in itself. We will endeavor to emulate the example of such a loving husband, devoted father/grandfather, and God-loving man we were blessed to have in our lives. Cherishing his memory are his wife, Christine; children, Christopher and wife Bonnie, Stephen and wife Charissa, Suzanne, and Charles, Jr. and wife Michele; 10 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild; sisters-in-law Suzanne, Joanne, Julie, and Lucie; brother-in-law, Doug; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
