Charles Wohl, cherished husband, father and grandfather, passed away on Saturday, December 8, 2012. Born in New York City on April 1, 1920 (he always bore the inevitable April Fool's Day jokes with good humor and grace), Charles was the son of Samuel and Lillian Wohl and brother of Zachary and Martin Wohl. Charles attended DeWitt Clinton High School and went on to graduate from New York University with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering followed by 2 Master degrees, one in Mechanical Enginerring and one in Aeronautical Engineering. His career aspirations, however, had to wait because of World War ll, during which Charles served in the 1388th Army Air Force Base Unit.
After the war, Charles married his one true love, Marjorie, in 1948. Prophetically, their wedding song was "Always". Charles and Marjorie remained in love. They were inseparable and indistinguishable. They were looking forward to celebrating their 64th Anniversary on December 18th of this year. Charles' professional career included tenures at various aerospace companies, most notably Republic Aviation and Grumman Corporation. Charles contributed to such projects as the EA-6B Prowler, the F-14 Tomcatand was involved in the space program. Charles was also a proud member of the Masonic Huguenot Lodge No.46.
Charles and Marjorie have been the best parents and grandparents anyone could ever hope for and Charles was the kind of loving and devoted husband that most spouses could only dream of. Charles is survived by his wife, Marjorie, his children, Linda,Hope, Kenneth and Edward and his grandchildren, Beverly, Johnathan, Jack and Luke. He will live in our hearts.....Always!
