BALLSTON SPA - Charles H. Braim, 63, of Ballston Spa passed away peacefully Monday, June 24, 2013, at his home with his wife by his side.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born Aug. 11, 1949, in Ballston Spa, 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.
He enjoyed bowling and golfing and was an avid Giants fan.
Chuck 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, they 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 Dec. 1, 1978; his brother, Thomas Braim (Rhoda) of Middle Grove; his uncles, Robert Braim of Saratoga Springs and Gerald Braim (Mary) of Gansevoort; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Kenneth and Patricia Davis, Skip and Traci Davis, Robert and Suzanne Mundell and Matthew and Ann Gormley; his nieces and nephews, Michael, William and Joseph Davis, Scott Mundell, Michael Gormley, Tyler and Lauren Davis, Justin Braim and Jodi Matthews; great-nieces and great-nephews, Madison, Kason, Ella, Aiden, Kayla and Olivia; and several cousins.
Funeral services will be held at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, June 27, 2013, at St. Mary's Catholic Church on Milton Avenue, where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated. Burial will follow at Ballston Spa Cemetery.
Relatives and friends are invited to call from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 26, at Armer Funeral Home Inc., 39 E. High St.
