Charles Voboril, “Charlie” to all of his friends & family, was born August 7th, 1937 in Jackson Heights, NY.

He grew up and lived on Satinwood Road in Rocky Point, early in life.

They wed on August 11, 1985, and were happily married for over 34 Years.

A long-standing member of the Rocky Point Fire Department.

Charlie was also proud member of the Suffolk County Police Auxiliary for over 40 Years.

A skilled Marksman & Instructor.  And boy, could Charlie shoot!

An avid Gardener, enjoyed playing the violin, and a loving & devoted Husband, a Father to 4 Children, with 8 Grandchildren, and 4 Great Grandchildren.  And a friend to everyone he met.

Charlie was kind & generous, and always with a smile.

He gave true meaning to the term gentleman, as a most “gentle-man!”

Charlie will surely be missed by all!

  1. candleCharlie was the best “nosy” neighbor I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet…his gardens were his passion, and he was so very generous with his plants, giving us a (now-blooming) white lilac, a pine Christmas tree, 2 burning bushes, pink rose of sharon, and some of his pink roses from the rock wall in front of his lovely home…he and Betty were 2 of my favorite people, and I am sorry we never got to spend more time with them…may Betty and Charlie soar with the butterflies in spirit and in peace and love…

  2. May you R.I.P. In my early years in Shoreham I would spend untold hours at your shop. I learned so much. You had gift for all who were there. It was honest and sincere Friendship. With basic tools you created works of art. Sadly I lost contact with you due to military service and you went to work at the school. Whenever I returned home as I went past your shop. It remained closed. I knew it would never be the same after that. Thank You so much for all you did. Ron Enriquez
