Charlie was born to Philip and Edna Weiler on November 6, 1934 in Bayridge, Brooklyn. He was the younger brother of Philip (deceased) and AnneMarie. His family moved to Lynbrook when he was a baby and it is here that he spent his life and raised his family. Charlie was a graduate of St. Raymond School and Lynbrook H.S. Charlie joined the Army in 1952 and served in the Korean War until 1954. Upon returning to Lynbrook, Charlie joined the Lynbrook Fire Department-Vulcan Company & Hose Company #2 in April 1954. Charlie recently celebrated his 66th year as an active member. Charlie rose through the ranks to Captain of Vulcan Company and in the years that followed would serve as Warden and Trustee for Vulcan Company. Charlie was a member of The Southern New York Fireman’s Association. He was a parishioner of Our Lady of Peace R.C. Church in Lynbrook for 58 years.

Charlie married Carole A. Coonan in February of 1961. They would make Lynbrook their home where they raised their daughters, Debbie and Christine. Sadly, Carole predeceased him in July of 1982. Happy years would follow as Charlie would see his daughters marry; Debbie to Ken O’Connor and Christine to Keith Worsdale. Grandchildren that he loved and kept him laughing followed: Colleen, Timothy, James, Dennis and Carolyn.
Charlie was an uncle to Philip, Elizabeth and Virginia Weiler as well as Patrick and Timothy Coonan.
Charlie or “Chuckie” as he was known to many loved his family, his friends, Vulcan Company, the New York Mets, Jeopardy & Wheel of Fortune, reading books and doing jigsaw puzzles. Many will remember him as “Chance Book Charlie”.
As his family mourns their loss and are sad, they know that he was welcomed by many loving faces! Charlie is enjoying a reunion with family and great friends.
