January 2, 1950 – September 15, 2020
Charles (Chuck) Edward Strazinsky, 70, died September 15, 2020, with his family by his side in Longs, South Carolina.
He was born on January 2, 1950 in Cleveland, Ohio, to John and Julia Strazinsky and was the youngest of three siblings.
Chuck was a warehouse manager at a biomedical company for thirty-seven years in the Cleveland area before retiring to Longs in 2005. He could always be found tinkering in his yard, building something for a friend or working around the neighborhood. He had a big smile and contagious laugh that could be heard by all. All of Chuck’s buddies enjoyed his friendship and he will be missed by everyone.
Chuck was a no nonsense guy that was bigger than life. He spoke his mind, supported others and loved his wife Patricia (Patty Cake) for 33 years of marriage. A perfectly matched couple joined to create a “Brady Bunch” family of his sons Chuck Jr; Bryan (Heather); and Jonathan (Lora); Patricia’s daughters, Evonne Papay; Sheri Hohenstein (David); and Rochelle Rinehart (Tim). This loving couple witnessed the creation of sixteen wonderful grandchildren; Sophia, Mason, Erika, Toni, Jacob, Zachary, Cassidy, Isabella, Max, Dominic, Amanda, David, Alex, Joshua, Emily and Madison. Chuck loved to spoil his grandchildren and he often did the same for family and friends around the barbeque grill or special home gathering. Chuck was preceded in death by his sister, Carol Labuda; and his brother, Bill.
At his request, a small service and celebration of life will be held at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church on September 25 at 11:00am.
Donations may be sent to McLeod Hospice Care who cared for Chuck during his final days.

Chuck was my youngest cousin of Uncle John and Aunt Julie. They lived up the street from us so we saw a lot of each other. Have fond memories of racing bikes downhill and trying not to get killed then going back up to try again. He will be missed.

I can't believe hes gone. I'm going to miss him so much. He was the best grandpa a girl could ever ask for. It felt just like yesterday him and I were joking around. He didn't deserve to get sick. He didn't deserve to die. He had so much more to do. He didn't get to see my new room, new style, my new nose, my wisdom teeth removal nor my confirmation. Its no fair. What happened to him makes no sense. Were all going to miss him so much. If Daisy understood what happened she would be really sad. Anyways that all I can really say because you have a word limit. I love you grandpa :)
Love Emily Rinehart

Chuck was a wonderful neighbor! Across the street from my wife and I for past 15 years. We will miss him, always outside, always engaged in LIFE. I think if one thing, one word can be said of Chuck it would be, LIFE and full of it. Our sincere condolences to his entire family

Chuck, you were definitely a person with such life and charisma when you walked into a room. I don’t think I ever saw you in a bad mood. You will be missed dearly and we are praying for your family during this very sad time. So blessed to have known you all these years. Love Celeste, Steve and Patrick Delaney

We are offering our deepest sympathy to the Strazinsky family.
Even though years have passed I still remember our working days at MP Biomedicals.
Pat you are in our prayers.
