Chuck or Charlie as his family used to call him, was born in Philadelphia on Conestoga street and lived there for 8 years.
He lived there with his Father, John and his Mother Thelma (nee Pfuller) Foley. He also had a brother, Jack and a sister Patricia to grow up with. He always had lots of wild stories and great memories to tell that would always anaze me about his experience in Philadelphia.

   His family moved several times but his final move was to Newtown Square on Barren Road. That was the place to live, He helped to organize a small Spanky, our gang where they played sports everyday and hung out. All the boys still kept in touch throught out the years. Chuck attended St. Anastasia School and Marple Newtown where he was very active in baseball, football and basketball, becoming the team captain for all three sports. He was the big jock of the school and liked by many.

   He fell in love with me when we meet in the ninth grade and have been together ever since then. We married in 1965 and he became a carpet, tile, and hardwood installer. Chuck loved his work and even opened his own store. H e took pride
in helping people and would always lend a hand if you asked.

   In 1968 our daughter Selena Marie was welcomed into our family, followed by Kimberly Anne just four years later in 1972. Our family grew up on Radcliffe Road in Broomall. Over the years our daughters got married, Selena Michele to John Sidiras, and Kimberly Anne to Daniel DiPaola. We were blessed to become grandparents of Kimberly's children, Selena Nicole and Angelina Gabrielle. The fun started all over for us. He loved to watch them grow and teach them all he knew. He loved being around his grandchildren because they made him so happy and proud. Chuck loved holidays a lot and mostly Christmas.
He enjoyed our friends and family coming over every holiday and spending time with everyone. Chuck was a huge sports fan and was so thrilled when the eagles finally won the super bowl after all the years he watched them play. He lived a great and eventful life. He will be missed by all, especially his wife, his partner in crime, Selena (nee Shanders) Foley
