Loving Husband, Father, & Grandfather


Charles K. Sr. "Charlie" age 70, on Jan. 26, 2021 of Easttown, PA.
Charlie passed away with his family by his side at Paoli Memorial Hospital.
Charlie was preceded in death by his son the late Charles K. Jr. (Chuck-o) He was the son of the late Mitchell and Barbara (nee Renninger) and brother of the late Mitchell (Duke).
Survived by his beloved wife of 50 years, Catherine (nee Durante), his sons Mitchell (Jennifer Sides), and Jonathan (Meagan Enderson), and his daughters Julianne (Rick) Jackson and Helen (Parker) Knight and soon to be daughter-in-law Katherine Tener, and his 5 grandchildren: Jocelyn Stead, Jack Stead, Taylor Sutton, Kennedy Jackson, Breeland Reese Stead and Katelyn Tener.
Charlie was born and raised in Malvern, Pa and a graduate of Great Valley High School. Charlie went on to work at Graphic Packing in Paoli, Pa for 31 years and held many titles throughout his career.
Charlie's passion was being a firefighter and constantly giving back to the community. Charlie was a life member at Berwyn Fire Company where he held numerous roles from Assistant-Chief to Engineer. Charlie enjoyed working with the younger members and being able to pass the knowledge bestowed on him from those that came before. Charlie was also a member of the Paoli Fire Company and was the Engineer for a time.
Charlie was an avid hunter and a Life Member of Robwood Lodge. Charlie enjoyed turkey hunting, deer hunting and pheasant hunting. Charlie looked forward to all of the time he would spend with his fellow members along with his two sons Mitchell and Jonathan. Charlie was known for ability to find turkeys. While he may not have been the most conventional at it, he always seemed to get shot at one. Charlie was also known to be the man at Camp that brought everything, if you forgot it or couldn't find it Charlie had it or a spare. Charlie loved his membership and friends at Kellogg Mountain Rod and Gun Club where he was a life member. Charlie would look forward to going to "sign the book" and talk with his friends about his day of hunting.
Charlie was very active coaching Little League baseball for nearly 20 years for Berwyn-Paoli. Charlie was often heard ending his practices with the kids by telling them "give me five and be good to your parents."
Charlie was a member of St. Monica's Parish in Berwyn, PA.
Charlie will be missed by many. His generosity was seen by all and his legacy will lived through his loved ones that were left behind.
With the loss of Charlie and Chuck-O on the same day we should all be thinking about them both riding off in a lock van or tow truck together forever!
In lieu of flowers donations are encouraged to Berwyn and Paoli Fire Companies in Charlie's memory.
Due to COVID-19 services will tentatively be held on May 22nd weather permitting and the time will be determined.
No other services are scheduled at this time.
