Married on September 5, 1953, Charles is survived by his wife Kathryn M. Prahler [Nie Blanchard], of Lake Zurich, IL. As a loving father and grandfather, Charles is survived by two children John C.

Charles graduated from Medina High School, New York and Cornell University, New York in 1951. He retired after 32 ½ years from Harrison Radiator (Delphi) as a Supervisor of the assembly line. Charles was also a loyal and dedicated member of the Lyndonville Lions Club. Charles was a religious man, with a kind soul that touched many lives through his wit, smile, and humor. He maintained a thirst for knowledge, a deep love for his wife and family, and a profound gratitude of living through his entire life. His favorite poem/song was Desiderata. He will be missed by many.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Our Lady of the Lake Parish, St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church at a later date and burial will be in the St. Mary’s Cemetery.
