Chuck was a lifelong Quincy resident who grew up in Houghs Neck and went on to raise his family in Wollaston. Chuck was known by everyone as the man who would always lend a helping hand to his family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Chuck had an extraordinary work ethic, spending 43 years at Polaroid Corporation, though his favorite job was his work as a roofer. Something he did for many years as a second job.
Chuck loved his wife Leona deeply and though he lost her to cancer in 1993, he maintained his many memories of their Saturday nights out dancing for years that followed. In addition to his love for his family, Chuck had a tremendous love for animals and put that to good use through his volunteer efforts at the Quincy Animal Shelter. A proud US Army Korean War veteran.
Later he enjoyed many happy years attending the Adult Day Health Program at Hancock Park and was cared for at home by family and devoted aides.
