Charles Francis Shea was born on October 26, 1936 in New York, NY and passed away on February 2, 2020 at home in Suffern, NY. He was 83 years old.

Charles was the most generous, kind, loyal, loving, husband, father, grandfather, uncle and father in law you could ever meet. He would do anything for his family.

Charles was the grandfather you would see at every school event, graduation, shows as well as every morning at the bus stop putting the grandkids on the bus. He never missed an opportunity to be with his grandchildren. He was even given a diploma when his last one graduated pre-school since he was always there.

Charles grew up in Manhattan and met the love of his life at 12 years old. Charles and Loretta married and raised 3 sons. Loretta predeceased Charles earlier this year. Charles was a proud New York City sanitation employee for 27 years. He loved to tell stories of his days on the job.

Charles leaves behind his 3 sons: Vincent, Lawrence, and Matthew; grandchildren: Brianna Liano, Kayla Shea, Bryan Shea; Daughter in laws: Shari Shea and Lori Liano along with many nieces and nephews.
