Charles H. Braim Ballston SpaCharles H. Braim, 63, of Ballston Spa, passed away peacefully Monday, June 24, 2013 at his home with his wife by his side. Born in Ballston Spa, August 11, 1949 he was the son of the late Harold and Margaret Quinn Braim. He was a graduate of Ballston Spa High School. Chuck worked at General Electric in the Rotterdam Plant for 18 years as a machinist and production coordinator until the plant was sold. He remained with the new owners, VonRoll Isola Inc., until his retirement in 2009. Chuck enjoyed bowling and golfing and was an avid Giants fan. He loved working in his garage and always had a project to work on. If he couldn't find exactly what he needed, he made it. He also loved working in his yard. He was always planting something. As chronic back problems curtailed his physical abilities, it never stopped him from offering a helping hand to his friends and family. If he couldn't do the physical work, he could always lend his knowledge. Chuck is survived by his wife of 34 years, Jill (Davis) Braim, whom he married on December 1, 1978; his brother, Thomas Braim (Rhoda) of Middle Grove; uncles, Robert Braim of Saratoga Springs and Gerald Braim (Mary) of Gansevoort; brothers-in-law and sisters-inlaw, Kenneth and Patricia Davis, Skip and Traci Davis, Robert and Suzanne Mundell, Matthew and Ann Gormley; nieces and nephews, Michael, William, and Joseph Davis, Scott Mundell, Michael Gormley, Tyler and Lauren Davis, Justin Braim and Jodi Matthews; great nieces and nephews, Madison, Kason, Ella, Aiden, Kayla, and Olivia; and several cousins.
