Charles F. Greeney, 92, of Chester died peacefully on January 16, 2017 after a brief illness. Beloved husband of the late Lena (Zaraschi) Greeney, he was predeceased by his son Paul. He grew up in Deep River and moved to Chester in the 1940's after he served his country during World War II to raise his family. Charles was a postman for many years in town and was a member and lifetime engineer for the Chester Hose Company. He was loved by many and was affectionately known by others in the community as "POPS". An avid card player, he enjoyed winning against us at cribbage and Pinocle. A true family man, he loved watching his grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow up. Charles leaves behind his children; Merry Berdensey and her late husband Arthur, Susan Blackwell and her husband Mark, Charlene Sprayberry and her husband Robert, Linda Johnson, and Charles Greeney, Jr. and his wife Cheryl, along with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren who will miss him dearly. We would like to thank the staff of Chesterfields for their kindness and compassion.
