Fort Myers Beach, FL - On Sunday, December 2, 2018, Charles E. Waldron, loving husband and father of five, passed away at age 86. He served as a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Chemical Corps from 1955 to 1957. Charles was born on June 7, 1932 in Jersey City, NJ and later moved to Bayonne. He graduated from St. Peter's Prep School and went on to earn his BA from St. Peter's College, Jersey City in 1954. He worked as a sales manager for Ryerson Steel, Jersey City for 30 years. On June 13, 1954 he married Marilyn DeCarlo.

Charles had a passion for serving his community and it was in this capacity that he pushed forward many initiatives which benefited the city of Bayonne.
