Charles L. Driscoll, 86, passed away unexpectedly at his home on, Saturday, December 21, 2019.
Charles was born on January 13, 1933, in Sanford, the son of Joseph A. and Lillian (Burnell) Driscoll.
Charlie met his future wife Marilyn in town and “fell head over heels” in love with her and
her red hair, they married in 1957 and soon after were blessed with two girls and two boys.
Charlie was devoted to his wife Marilyn, you never saw one without the other, except the occasional Saturday in the fall when he went hunting.
Charlie would tell you he’d have done about any job that was offered to him except picking apples or blueberries.
He worked with his brother George hanging antennas in his youth, worked for Sanford Fire Department then went to the Baker Company where he retired.
Charlie also served during the Korean War with the Army.
He couldn’t stay still for long though and ended his career working at Phil’s Fabrication in Lebanon.
Charlie was a loving supportive father to his children; he was a Boy Scout leader and even went back to school to get his diploma with his boys.
His grandchildren have fond memories of him, and his youngest granddaughter Brandi was lucky enough to be around at an age when they were bringing her camping and to North Conway with them as a child.
Charlie is reunited with his love Marilyn and daughter Kaye Rankins and the many Driscoll family members called home. The memories we have will sustain us until we see them again.
Charlie is lovingly survived by her two sons, Karl Driscoll and wife Linda and son Ethan of Sanford; Kurt Driscoll and wife Beth and daughters Brandi, Jill and Brittany of Dover, NH; Karen Driscoll and Kelli and Erynn of Alfred; six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren along with many nieces, nephews and members of the Driscoll families.
