Charles J. Carey Jr., affectionately known as Charley to his friends and loved ones, passed away peacefully on January 27, 2024, in Pennsauken. Born in Philadelphia, Charley was a longtime Pennsauken resident and US Army Veteran.
Married to his beloved wife, Meg, for 39 wonderful years, Charley was a devoted husband and a pillar of strength for his family. Together, they raised four remarkable sons: Jeff and his wife, Lauren, Charles, Bobby and his wife Emily; and Gene and his wife Minako. Charley's role as a father was one he cherished deeply, and he instilled in his sons the values of love, humor, and resilience.
One of Charley's greatest joys was being a grandfather to his adored grandchildren: Matthew, Emily, Shane, Josh, Lexi, Brayden, Hannah, Juliana, Ben, and Noah. He was their biggest fan, attending their events with enthusiasm and pride, and always ready with a joke to make them smile.
Charley's love for his family extended to his siblings, William, Eugene, Edward and his wife, Jill, and Madelyn and her husband Chuck. The bonds they shared were unbreakable, and their memories together were cherished.
An avid sports enthusiast, Charley's passion for all Philadelphia sports teams was unparalleled. He spent many a day cheering on his favorite teams, and his spirit and dedication were infectious. He also enjoyed playing soccer and golfing, with St. Andrew's holding a special place in his heart as his favorite golfing destination.
Traveling was another of Charley's passions, and he found great pleasure in exploring new places. Ocean City was among his favorite spots, a place where he could unwind and enjoy the simpler pleasures of life.
Charley's sense of humor was legendary, and he was often the life of the party with his quick wit and endless jokes. He was funny, loving, and spirited, traits that endeared him to everyone he met. As we remember Charley, we celebrate a life lived with laughter, love, and an indomitable spirit. His legacy is one of joy, family, and an unwavering zest for life.
Relatives and friends are invited to his visitation Friday, February 2nd from 10 am to 1 pm at the Gaskill-Brown Funeral Home, 33 West Maple Avenue, Merchantville. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital: https://www.stjude.org/donate
