Obituary

I left this world on January 6, 2013. I was born in Penn Yan, NY, in 1943, and the son of Henry K. and Eva M. Charlsen. Both are deceased but I hope to see them again. There is nothing interesting in what I did for employment, but I was in the U.S. Air Force from 1963-1969 (a Vietman Veteran) and worked for UNIVAC, Penn Yan Express and Yorktowne Caskets. Every place I worked closed up and left town. Now I will do the same. I have 4 children, Todd and Diana (Pinti) Charlsen of Clinton, Tamara Mugford of Oriskany, Michael Charlsen of Utica and Michelle Charlsen (deceased). I also have 5 beautiful grandchildren, Alexandra of Clinton and...

Every place I worked closed up and left town. Now I will do the same.

I have 4 children, Todd and Diana (Pinti) Charlsen of Clinton, Tamara Mugford of Oriskany, Michael Charlsen of Utica and Michelle Charlsen (deceased). I also have 5 beautiful grandchildren, Alexandra of Clinton and Coty, Kirsten and Tehgan of Oriskany and Alison Charlsen (deceased). I love them and will miss them all dearly.

I leave behind 3 sisters, Edna Reiners and Marilyn Oswald of Penn Yan and Colleen Wight of Rochester. My sister, Betty Vermilye, left this world before me. I have 2 brother-in-laws, Dwayne Oswald and David Wight and many neices and nephews. Patricia Rogowski is a very close and personal friend and I thank her for helping me through some difficult times.

I treasure the many memories and experiences I had with my family and my biggest regret is that I did not spend more time with them. There is so much more I should have done and wanted to do. I wanted to hold my first great-grandchild.

Friends and relatives are invited to attend Memorial Calling hours for Bruce from 11:00AM to noon on Saturday January 12, 2013 , with a service to follow at Townsend –Wood Funeral Home, Penn Yan, New York. Any donations, please make them to the Stevens-Swan Humane Society, Utica, NY, or to Hospice. They do fantastic and difficult work.

Now I will finally be going home to Penn Yan....to stay.
