Graveside Services were held at St. Joseph Cemetery, West Roxbury on May 11th, for Charles A. Reid, of Revere, formerly of Arlington, and Jamaica Plain, who passed away on April 25th at 82 years.

Charles was born and raised in Boston and attended Boston Public Schools. He was the devoted son of the late Felix Reid & Alice (Kennedy) Reid, and pre-deceased by his siblings, Alyce Elworthy of Wilmington, William of Scituate, and James of Escondido, CA.  Proud of his Irish heritage and dual citizenship, one of Charlie’s greatest joys was returning to his ancestral home in the Village of Dysart in County Roscommon, Ireland and meeting family and friends at his favorite watering hole, Sean’s Bar, in Athlone. 

He was fortunate to work for Northeast and Delta Airlines for over 35 years, which afforded him the luxury of travel.  Charlie enjoyed his adventures all over the world, among his favorites were trips to Russia and Spain, and he loved his shopping jaunts to Bermuda for just a day!  He fully enjoyed engaging with people and upon his retirement, returned to Logan Airport greeting international visitors for Massport. 

Charlie was a big fan of holidays, and his many nieces and nephews, will forever recall amazing rum cakes, generous gifts, vivid stories, and the ever-present and appropriate holiday ties. It was “Not a Holiday without Uncle Charlie” in the house!  He will be missed by all who shared in his life.  Charles is survived by many nephews, nieces, cousins, & dear friends from all around the globe. Charles will be remembered for living life to the fullest and many will be instantly reminded of him whenever they hear his famous quote “What not, and So On and So Forth…”.

The challenges of this past year have been difficult, but Charlie was fortunate to have spent the last months of his life at the Lighthouse Nursing Care Center in Revere.  Together with the Lighthouse staff, the Compassus Hospice team was with him every day, meeting his needs, intently listening to his tales, and keeping family informed. Enormous gratitude for all they do.

In his memory, donations may be made to the Resident Activity Center at Lighthouse, 204 Proctor Ave., Revere, MA 02151 to help enrich the experiences of others.
