Chuck was a guy in motion, always keeping busy or tinkering with something. Chuck raised quality kids. His real joy was being a Pop Pop, he’d entertain them with stories, even though he would make them up as he went along with “Blah, Blah, This & That.” Chuck loved going to Sports Night, cheering on the white team, “White Will Win”! As a little league coach he was fair with the kids; as an umpire, his intensity left little doubt the pitch was a strike. Chuck served our nation in the Air Force making sure B-52 bombers were in tip top shape. Win or lose he loved the Eagles, Phillies and Flyers. A real baseball guy he would listen to the Phils on the radio on his front porch while sipping on an ice cold beer. He was a lifetime member of the “L&M doughnut and coffee club”. Earlier years found him selling real estate.
One day a crowd of guys from Philly showed up at the Medford Farms Dance. The good looking Chuck would catch the eye of the young Margaret Evans. They celebrated 60 years of marriage and were blessed by five children: Charles (Debbie), Peggy (Gary), Patti (Patrick), Michael (Jacqui), and Chris (Lisa); and later by 8 grandchildren, Kayla, Jessica, Nicholas (Rachel), Ryan, Colin, Jana, Liam and Eva; and great-granddaughter, Aubrey. He is also survived by his sisters, Mary (Bruno, deceased) Muni, Betty (Bruce) Bosworth and Catherine (Tom) Locher. He was predeceased by his parents Charles & Mary Zollner of Philadelphia.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 11:00 a.m. at Jesus the Good Shepherd Parish, St. Peter’s Church, Riverside. Interment Beverly National Cemetery, Beverly.
