Obituary

We are saddened to share the news of the passing of Charles Bucherer, 79 of Oceanport. Charles was born in Long Branch to Frederick and Elizabeth Bucherer in 1944, grew up in West Long Branch, and was a graduate of Long Branch High School, class 1962. From there he joined the Army as a reservist and was on call for our country. He worked for JCP&L for over 35 years before retiring to spend more time relaxing with family and friends.  He also worked for Becker’s Tree Experts even after retirement with his best friend of 70 years Steve. You would see him often driving around Oceanport in a green Becker’s truck, probably on his way to give someone a hand.

Charles (or Charlie, Chuckie or Skippy) was always friendly, kind, and had a knack for making everyone feel welcome and loved. In turn, he was loved by all who knew him. He loved the beach, the sunshine, fussing in the yard while whistling, and was notorious for giving nicknames. He was an amazing husband to his wife Marilyn of 57 years whom he met as a teenager. They spent many memorable summers with family and friends at Trade Winds Beach Club, The Promenade Beach Club, and Seven Presidents where you could find him drinking a cold beer and grilling up some “Chuckie Cheese Dogs”.  His granddaughters loved their Poppy and will miss him and his jokes dearly. He was a one-of-a-kind husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle, in-law, and friend – he will be fiercely missed.

He was predeceased by his parents and stepmother Anne. Charles leaves behind his heartbroken family; wife Marilyn, daughter Betsey and son-in-law Cameron Werner of Rumson, daughter Jamie Bucherer of Los Angeles, CA, granddaughters Olivia and Grace Werner, sisters Helen Sanders, Claire Wegner, and Lois Wilford. His sisters and brothers-in-law, Joanne and Scott Martin, Karen and John Krebs, as well as his nieces, nephews, and many, many dear friends.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, January 25th from 5-8 pm at Damiano Funeral Home, 191 Franklin Avenue in Long Branch. The funeral will be Thursday, January 26th at 10:00 am at the funeral home with the service to begin at 10:30 am. Interment will follow at Woodbine Cemetery in Oceanport. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The American Parkinson Association or The Michael J. Fox Foundation.
