I met Charlie in the late 80's as a Realtor in Ca- a cold call in my Glendale office! What a treat- I'll never forget- he was "on" 95% of the 3 days I toured him around- I think he was anticipating a series with Lucille Ball- & the RE market was going down- I said "rent not buy" it was a privilege & an honor to have been entertained by him for 3 straight days- he was also a very kind, gracious man. I've read all these entries and its heartwarming to know how many lives he impacted in the most joyous way. I'm so sorry he is no longer with you, but you will see him again. Kindest regards to his family,

My sympathies to the Callas families. Mr. Callas was a brilliant and talented man. He is now a brand new star in the sky forever more.
Sincerely, Tina Freda, a Fan.

A bright, lovable, irreplaceable candle has been extinguished.
Just seeing his picture brings back so many hilarious memories. One of my favorites was Charlie in a knit cap doing his impression of Jacques Cousteau. Tears of sadness and joy.

I can't tell you enough how Charlie made us (my whole family) laugh so hard whenever he guest starred on a t.v. show--I never missed a chance to watch him! I am grateful we have YouTube to be able to watch some of his wonderful appearances. Rest in peace, Charlie--we love you!

I recall fun times with my mom as we would watch Dean Martin roasts. Our favourite one was where he was wearing the football helmet. Mom and I cracked up...tears running down our cheeks from so much laughter. I wish I could find this clip on you-tube. He was an amazing comedian. Always remember how much joy he gave to everyone who was lucky enough to see him in action. God bless.

My grandfather was asked to join Mr. Callas on stage at Caesar's Palace in the '70's. It was such a proud moment when Pop took the microphone and sang a lovely version of "Danny Boy".They were both named Charlie & are no doubt enjoying a couple hundred laughs.R.I.P. from one proud granddaughter!
March 26, 2011
I met Charlie in 1959 when his son Mark became my best friend. I laughed with him and at him for six years,on top of getting to hear him play the drums everyday. RIP Mark call or write please.

February 03, 2011
Absolutely one of the funniest performers ever to be on TV. His antics were hysterical, and you had to watch every second of his schtick, or you would miss one of his crazy expressions. An original and genius comedian. Charlie, you'll be missed by many!
February 03, 2011
Charlie was one of my favorite comics ever since I was a child. He cracked me up. God bless and rest in peace with Evelyn, Charlie.

I remember how funny Charlie was. I grew up in the 60's and always thought he was so clever. Those days were so much more simpler and better if we only appreciated it more while living it.
February 01, 2011
I'm sure Charlie is celebrating his new life with the love of his life. We will all remember his great comedic talent. I remember him from all the shows he did. Watched whenever he was on. RIP Charlie...you are in a much better place! Condolences to his family.
February 01, 2011
Mark & Larry, I loved your father. He was my favorite comedian. The best was when he was the hunter with the shakes & holding a rifle.

February 01, 2011
I always thought that Charlie was a great comedian. My favorite of all his routines was when he was at the Dean Martin Roast and the victim was Don Rickles. Charlie got up and imitated George Jessell and he was just too funny. My sincere sympathy to Charlie's family.
February 01, 2011
He was a great comedian and will be missed. I remember him being on Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon.

January 31, 2011
I am so sorry for the loss of your father. His contribution to society adds more to our lives than we may know ....Comedians see life the way I wish I could see it. I hope that you find comfort in the fact the God remembers all the good that he did. I hope that all goes well you. I hope that Psalms 23 can help you to know that there is someone you can always talk too. I wish you the best.
January 31, 2011

January 31, 2011
Charlie Callas was the greatest in his field! What he had, was a natural GIFT, and how fortunate we all are to have had the pleasure of being entertained by him. His talent cannot be duplicated! We have truly lost a most valued personality. It sounds as though he must have died from a broken heart........So sad to hear of your mother's passing, as well.

Growing up in Fort Lee, NJ I often saw Charlie out and about. What an extremely funny man. I was a cashier at the Foodtown in Ft. Lee, Mrs. Callas used to shop there alot accompanied by her sister Helen always by her side. Mrs. Callas was a lovely woman, wasn't aware of her passing. My deepest sympathy to the Callas family
January 30, 2011
Your Father has brought many hours of laughter and entertainment to my parents, myself and my siblings. He was truly one of our favorite comedians. Thank you for sharing him with us.

To the Callas family, A truely wonderful entertainer and a lovely man. I met your mom and dad while he was a member if the U.S.I.M.L.T. We shot in Canada together and while practicing for that competition we had the pleasure of meeting your mom also. What a lovely lady. Trying so hard to compile a list of assets from your dads small scrap pieces of papers she had in a brown grocery bag. That was a great day at the Roxbury range. I am saddened to hear of her passing also. May the wonderful memories you have of both of them help lighten your hearts burden during this difficult time.

Charlie will be sorely missed. I only met him once, years ago while he worked the Top Hat Supper Club in Windsor, but have fondly remembered him since. He made a stressed out waitress relax and laugh.
January 30, 2011
I remember the humor. May your memories and the strength from God sustain you at this sad time.
January 30, 2011
I remember seeing Chuck way back when he was just getting into the show biz game. He first started with a cowboy persona, like the late, great Will Rogers. He would stand on a bare stage and work a lariat, just like old Will. He told stories of cattle work in Brooklyn and Patterson, New Jersey, about the time they had a big hurracane over there. Not too funny, so he made a switch to the kind of work we all remember him for today.

Great funny man, sure to be missed.

RIP great funny guy.

January 30, 2011
I remember him in the 70's as a young child on the comedy show, I am sorry for your loss but remember the funny personality that he had and his serious side as well. May you throw your burden on our Heavenly Father and He will sustain you in you time of need.
January 30, 2011
To the Callas Family and Friends,

Deeply sorry for the loss of such a creative and funny person like Charlie. In this very sad occasion please find a measure of comfort from the many wonderful memories he must have shared over the years.

Psalms 34:18-"God is near to those broken at heart..."

You can feel that Death can leave a heartache that nothing can heal, just know that Love can bring a memory that no one can steal.

The Grant Family

P.S.-He did a great time at all the Roasts he attended.

I am sorry for your loss. Your father was a great comedian. Most of us fans have now turned 60 or more in age. Your father always delivered comedy routines that were never vulgar as comedians of today. Your father was a gift during difficult times in our countries history, such as the Vietnam war, President Richard Nixon' s fall from the highest position of the world and I could go on and on.
January 29, 2011
Mark and family;
Connecticut LOVED Charlie. May he rest in peace, now united with your dear mom. Thanks Charlie. XO.

Thanks for sharing your dad with us for many years.Just last week I was explaning
periods,commas,etc to my 6year old granchild.My prayers are with your family.
January 29, 2011
I just emailed this news to my 40+ daughter. She has often been told that this was her first great comedic love. She would stand up in her playpen while watching Charlie perform. It really warmed my heart to hear her giggle & laugh out loud at his facial expressions & inflection in his voice. (Charlie sort of "babysat" my baby while I was preparing dinner.)That is not to say that I wasn't listening as well!
I consider him part of our family, not unlike a distant uncle. The memories of his schtick are the best!
To Charlie's family, you must be so proud of the good he did in his life. Laughter IS the best medicine for us all!
January 29, 2011
I met Charlie when he opened for Frank Sinatra at the Valley Forge Music Fair and had the privilege of spending time with him after the show at one of Jilly's birthday parties. Not only was he a brilliant comic, but he was also a kind, gentle man. He was not full of himself like so many celebrities, but rather was a humble man and as down to earth as anyone could imagine. He spoke of his family and had your pictures in his wallet, he just glowed when he talked about family. It spoke volumes for his goodness. You were such a happy family, it brought a closeness to a sweet man. I hope that the warmth of your memories will help to fill the void. My very deepest sympathy at the loss of your parents. Thank you for sharing with the world.
January 29, 2011
I enjoyed the comedy of Mr Callas over the years............he will be missed. God Bless!
January 29, 2011
You WILL be missed! Thanks so much for all the laughter! RIIP.
January 29, 2011
Bye Charlie, you could make me laugh without saying a word. My condolences to your sons.
January 29, 2011
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
January 29, 2011
We have lost the greatest "laugh-therapy" comic ever. I remember watching Charlie on Carson, and various other shows and wishing I could make the terrific faces he was doing to make others laugh. I would try to catch any TV show he was on just because it felt so good to witness his comedic talent. He will be sorely missed. May you find solace in his entertaining the Good Lord in heaven.
January 29, 2011
So very sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved Father (& Mother) A true Comic & a Gentleman..Of all the times I've watched & have been entertained by Charlie, he never had to resort to using foul language or cursing..only pure hearted Comedians could do that..there are so few real entertainers left down here on earth, I can't wait to get up there with all the good guys (&gals)that will truly be Heaven..Boys, your parents loved you-make 'em proud...
January 29, 2011
I loved to watch him he was so funny. He was my mothers favorite comic .May God Bless him and his family.
January 29, 2011
I would often see Mr. Callas dining out at restaurants in Ft. Lee in the early '80s. He was a gracious and charming fellow.
January 29, 2011
I saw him imitate a fly on a table and it was so good, it was hysterical!!
Rest in peace, sweet soul...
January 29, 2011
I remember Charlie Callas in the Mel Brooks movie "The Silent Movie". It was hysterical and it actually was a silent movie. He was a very funny man and his facial expressions were priceless. He will be missed but not forgotten...Andra (Farmville, VA)
January 29, 2011
I remember to this day, when he appeared on the Jonathan WInters Show doing a a military scene with Jonathan. After that, I was hooked on his comedy! Such a great showman.
January 29, 2011
I remember Charlie Callas from growing up in the 60s-70s. He always made my parents and I laugh. I'm sorry for your loss of both your father & mother. Now they are together laughing and making people laugh in heaven. May you find comfort in your memories of your parents. God Bless
January 29, 2011
My heart felt sympathy goes out to the family. I will never forget when my son was a little guy and was in this play pen. He was laughing so hard. He was watching TV and there was Charlie doing all kinds of faces. At one point my son fell over laughing.Laughter is the best medicine. I will always remember you. Thanks for the memories. My prayers go out to his family.
With my deepest sympathy,
Sandie Davis
January 29, 2011
I remember his jokes and dancing on the Mama Goose & Andy-Tandy Dandy show when I was just a little sprout. Loved the guy!
January 29, 2011
He did such a wonderful job as the voice of Elliot. My daughter enjoyed the movie and now her children enjoy it just as much.
January 29, 2011

January 29, 2011
Just watched Young Frankenstein last weekend for the umpteenth+ time. Charlie will always be remembered with a hearty laugh...Sympathy to his family.
January 29, 2011
I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to the family of Charlie Callas for their loss. I grew up watching him on all the shows mentioned in the obituary. It is so sad to continue to lose all the great real comedians that did not have to rely on vulagarity, demeaning, cussing, or sexual monologue to make people laugh. I miss the days of good clean comedy. It is also nice to know that he was one of the few stars to stay married to the same woman for so many years, what a love story. For those of us that were priveleged to get to see his performances in the early years, we are truly thankful. My heart goes out to the family and loved ones of Charlie Callas. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful man with the rest of us.

The world is a little less funny today, but Heaven will be greatly enriched by the humor and warmth of one of the greatest comedians of all time, Charlie Callas. Charlie, we will miss you.
January 29, 2011
Remembering Charlie Callas: I feel another part of my childhood has left. I enjoyed his animal sounds and other antics so much. God promised us three scores and ten and he made it. He will now be reunited with his dear wife. May he rest in peace.

One of the really funny guys who could make you laugh without all the foul language. I still smile when I remember the bit he did where the guy who studdered and shook when bird hunting. "No wonder you hit so many birds you shot all over the sky". Thank you Charlie for making me laugh.

To Mr Callas' family, I am so sorry for your loss. I know you have many wonderful memories of your dad. He was one of a kind;they don't make them like Charlie any more. He was one of the last of the good guys. He brought hours of laughter to us all.
Rest well, Mr Callas, you are Home and with your lovely wife. We will miss your funny faces.
January 29, 2011
Thanks for the laughs and the crazy sounds your taught us to appreciate. You were unique, rest peacefully but only for awhile, there is a special show in heaven and you're the headliner....

He will be greatly missed. My condolances.

Dear Larry and Mark

My thoughts and prayers go out to both of you at this very sad time.
Being a Baby Boomer, I remember the good old days of TV, when the entire family sat in front of the set and laughed at comics like your dad. They won't make them like Charlie anymore.
May he rest in peace

I'm sorry to hear of the passing of Charlie. I've enjoyed his talents on many shows during my youth. His comedic talents were one of the best. My best wishes and prayers to the family.... Debra, Modesto CA
January 29, 2011
Fort Lee is a bit dimmer with your Dad's passing. Center Avenue is darker. As someone has already said, one can never forget your Dad entertaining the pedestrians on Lemoine Avenue. His smile and warmth would light up the area. Take comfort in knowing that so many will remember your Dad not just for his celebrity and talent but for the warmth that he showed to all.
January 29, 2011
Our heartfelt condolences to Charlie's family. We were so sorry to hear of his passing. May our heavenly Father, the God of comfort and tender mercies be with you all. With deep sympathy,

January 28, 2011
So sorry about Charlie> He was on of the Best. Wish Carson wouldn't have banned him, but in retrospect, I don't think there's nuch difference between Carson and that Jay Leno. They don;t make them like Charlie anymore and never will.
Our prayers to you.
January 28, 2011
Charlie was a great comedian...He paved the way for people like Jim Carey. With his facial comedy....Sorry to see you go. Jeff A FAN!!

Charlie Callas was a throwback to old school comedy, complete with slapstick. He was genuine. His passing is just another reminder that the golden age of entertainment is long gone. RIP and thanks for making me laugh!
January 28, 2011
Walking along Lemoine Avenue and running into Charlie Callas was always a trip, he always took time to entertain us a bit. I have never forgotton him in his trench coat and wide brim hat, standing out more than not! Rest In Peace, thanks for sharing the best with the rest.
January 28, 2011
Larry & Mark,

I just found out about your dad today. My deepest thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I knew your dad when he and your lovely mom (only learned today of her passing back in July as well and I'm so sorry) lived in Fort Lee, NJ in the same building as my family and me when I was a kid. He always made me laugh and smile every time I ran into him or rode up in the elevator. He was a brilliant comedian, truly the funniest guy to his core and he and your mom were two of the nicest people, totally down to earth and real. I will remember all the laughs, they don't make 'em like Charlie anymore. He will be sorely missed.
January 28, 2011
So sorry to hear of your loss..may the god of all comfort be with the family during this difficult time. (2 Cor 1:3)
January 28, 2011
Mark & Larry, sorry about the loss of your dad. He made many people very happy just at the sight of him. Remember him in the good times and he'll always be around. My prayers are with you and your families. Lynda Maggio

I am sorry to hear that your father passed. I remember when we went to school how funny he was.
January 28, 2011
There was never a telethon Jerry Lewis missed in getting the valuable Charlie to appear. No one today can take his place. Charlie's brand of humor was unique. Not even a major stroke could have caused it negative impairment.
January 28, 2011
.Charlie Callas was such a funny man. I remember seeing him on the earlier shows such as Sullivan, Gleason etc. I laughed so hard I almost wet my pants, he truly was a happy and funny guy. Prayers will go out to the family.
January 28, 2011
I remember him best from the "Dean Martin Roast" comedy hour. I'm sure he is making people laugh on the other side. He has also been reunited with the wonderful people who made him laugh too. The best to the family and friends of Charlie.
January 28, 2011
You were a wonderful comic & made me laugh so many times. Thanks for the memories.

The man made me laugh without saying one word. Another one of funny guys of all time has left us. But he left us laughing. Rest in Peace Charlie. I know you are bring down the house in Paradise.
January 28, 2011
I remember Mr. Callas very well and I really enjoyed his humor and the facial expressions at times were as much if not more humorous than anything he said or did. I always feel so bad when we lose someone who entertained us so much and that I grew up watching. It is such a loss and I truly am sorry for the family he leaves behind, I hope you find Peace and comfort in your time of sorrow, My Prayers are with you all.
January 28, 2011
Loved this guy what a sense of humor,he ought to have them rolling in the aisles in heaven.R.I.P. Charlie
January 28, 2011
There were always tears. Whenever I was blessed to see him perform. Tears of uncontrolled laughter at the joy and appreciation of his zany humor. And there are tears now, as I write. Tears for the memory; tears of his passing. And through all of the tears; in the beginning, the middle, and the end . . . I smile broadly, with a warm feeling for the memory. Alleva-sholem, Charlie.
January 28, 2011
Charlie Callas was one of the funniest men to ever appear on tv. I am 58 and he gave me many hours of laughter as I was growing up. I will always cherish those times and miss him!!!
His humor was made for family viewing when so many were not!!!!
January 28, 2011
The best comic is always a natural comic, and Mr. Callas was one of the absolute best for many of us over many years. The laughter has turned to tears today in honor of a great man that gave so much to make this world a happier place even for just a little while. Thoughts and prayers for the Callas family, but what great memories he has given us during this time on Earth. We mourn the loss of this wonderful man, but he is one happy man to be reunited with his loving wife. God Bless.
January 28, 2011
God bless him and his family
January 28, 2011

The public has lost another original comic of the golden age of television. Anyone who could make Johnny Carson roar was OK in my book.
Charlie brought smiles and laughter to countless audiences. Thank you, Mr. Callas. Rest well and peace to your soul.
January 28, 2011
Thank you for your gifts that you so generously shared with the masses. Just looking at his picture reminds me of how MUCH he used to crack us up. Clean, funny comedy! Thanks to the family for sharing him with us! He was adorable!!! No doubt busting them up in heaven!!!

He made me laugh until I cried....I cry for him today....RIP
January 28, 2011
Charlie was one of the best humorists I have ever witnessed. He was one of the unique strategists at his practice of entertaining the viewer and his immediate surroundings of fellow actors and actresses. He was a family man and a man of unique character second to none.

He will be missed by all who knew him and especially by those closest.

Charlie, you made the honor roll, good luck in your travels.

May God bless the Callas Family, and God Bless Charlie Callas.
January 28, 2011
