Obituaries

It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Charles F. Each, the longstanding Manager of Cobble Hill Chapels, on Thursday morning, March 18, 2021.

Charles was known to most as "Charlie", and was born on July 22, 1943 to his parents Joseph & Frances Each ( nee Richardone). 

Charlie was predeceased by his life-partner Juan Cano Marin, who passed away unexpectedly May 22, 2020, and his cat "Shadow" who also passed unexpectedly a few days after Juan.  

Charles is survived by his sister, Diann 'Dee' Each-Ferguson, and his brother Robert 'Bobby' Each, along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends who had became family members along the way. 

Charles Each was a Licensed Funeral Director for over 50 years, and was extremely knowledgeable and patient with mentoring younger aspiring funeral directors about the business.  While Charlie had started in the industry working for trade houses in partnership with other funeral directors, he had also owned his own successful funeral business and was well respected amongst his peers in the industry. Charlie had began working for Cobble Hill Chapels in a part-time position in the early 1990's and over the next few years was so well received by our community, he was quickly promoted to be Manager.  Charles had devoted his lifeswork to helping families in the Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, and Carroll Gardens communities daily, and was rewarded in doing so with our families trust and loyalty. Charles was always full of sage advice, and his many years experience in the industry made him an avid problem solver, often havng a solution for all sorts of funeral dillemmas, and he also had a huge heart for hardships, never turning a family away without a solution to any problem.

Charles will be greatly missed by all who knew him during life, and his stories and tales in the funeral industry will be regaled far beyond his time and tenure here on earth.  His kindness, caring, and constant compassion was sowed in this community during some of the darkest periods of mourning in ones lives, and we will never forget his lifes work of service and dedication to maintaining the Dignity and Compassion in Funeral Service. 

 

Funeral Services were privately held, and Cobble Hill Chapels will host a Memorial Mass in his honor on May 22, 2021, at St. Pauls RC Church at 1:00pm.
