AND IF THAT wasn’t enough:
He was chairman of the committee that proposed and pushed for the location of Lakeview Correctional Facility in the Town of Portland/Brocton. Many would say he was the main force in obtaining a successful result in this project.

He also convinced International Filler Corporation to donate the Mundane Building to the Brocton/Portland Development Corp, to be used as a business incubator. It was eventually sold, and the funds were used to develop Haywood Heights Housing Development, a joint project with the Brocton/Portland Development Corp., the Town of Portland, the Village of Brocton, and the County of Chautauqua.

Funeral Notice Detail

Charles was at peace with his maker and surrounded by his close family when he departed this world due to complications from surgery.

Anyone who knew him was aware of at least one of his many involvements in the legal, political, religious and so many other realms. His resume would take many pages.

But anyone who truly KNEW him, felt his love for family, food, sailing, being right (or just the obstinacy to not give in), football, laughter… he had a zeal for life. Even the angels above can now hear him boom out “MAROON”!

A Memorial Service, in lieu of a Funeral, will be held Saturday 2/28 at 11am at St. Dominic Roman Catholic Church, Brocton, NY. A second service will be held July 25th at the Penn Yan United Methodist Church.
