Charles and Lorraine were a loving couple whose lives revolved around their family. The pair met in Brant, NY in 1958. They grew their family with their children, Gregory and Richard, as well as their grandchild, Chas. Throughout life they supported each other through good and challenging times, knowing the importance of family.
Charles provided for his family by working at MOOG Inc. in East Aurora for 43 years retiring in 2003. He stressed hard work, education and family while sharing his love of the outdoors with Sunday drives in the country, skiing, hunting, fishing and supporting his children through their endeavors. While raising the kids, Lorraine filled the house with love, wit, wisdom, her lovely piano playing and her firm discipline.
At the end of the day, THEY wanted to provide for and nurture each other and their family
