He eloped with his childhood sweetheart, Janet Dodds on September 7, 1957 and raised two daughters, Debi and Pam. Charles had many passions in life.

He spent hours riding his bike and taking long walks with his wife and grandchildren on the Great Allegheny Passage. His selflessness and love heart inspired everyone he encountered.

I am survived by my daughter, Cathi (Marty) Mayernik of Lincoln Borough; grandchildren, Jonathan Mayernik, Carissa Mayernik, Casey Jo Dale and Matt Medved; great-grandchildren, Nathan Dale, and Mady and Landen Medved; special friends; also, nieces and nephews. My son, Charlie K. Dale, died October 31, 2019. I have no desire to have a viewing or to put my children through any more misery. Remember laughing together and better times. If I haven’t seen you in the last six months, then you’re not missing anything nor was I missing you. You can make memorial contributions to a charity of your choice. Mom said if I can’t say anything nice to shut my mouth. So that’s it. Nothing more to say. C’yall later. Arrangements by the Paul E. Bekavac Funeral Home, Elizabeth.
