Levchak, Charles Joseph

Charles Joseph Levchak, ("CJ"), 26, of Kirkwood, NY passed away with his family by his side on March 9, 2016 as a result of an accidental drug overdose. CJ was a gentle spirit who left this earth into the welcomed arms of his predeceased grandparents, Net and Pop, (Roberta and Frank Canini) and grandmother, Joan Levchak. He is survived and will be sorrowfully missed by his loving parents, Charles H. and Shelley (Canini) Levchak; fourlegged brother, Oscar; grandfather, Charles Levchak; aunts, Robin and Tim Truex, Carol and Gary Robidoux, Kathryn Daum, Cynthia and Gary Brown and Betty and Edward McLean; many cousins and close friends. He is also survived by girlfriend, Sarah Fabrizio and longtime friends, Joe and Christopher Meatty, Ben Komoroff and Adam Guinn. His short, but meaningful life will help others live by being an organ donor. His Aunt Betty will be one of the very special recipients. CJ worked at McGirk's Irish Pub in Binghamton and was a graduate of Windsor Central High School Class of 2007. He enjoyed playing the drums, video games, listening to music and spending time with his friends. The family would like to thank the Binghamton General Hospital ER, ICU and Donate Life staff for their care and compassion. They would also like to thank their family and friends who supported them, sat with them and gave them strength during this difficult time. A funeral mass will be offered on Monday, March 14, 2016 at 11:00 am at St. John's Church, Susquehanna, Pa. The family will receive friends on Sunday, March 13, from 2-4 pm at the Wm. R. Chase & Son Funeral Home, 737 Chenango Street, Port Dickinson, NY. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Front Street Dog Shelter, 110 Cutler Pond Road, Binghamton, NY 13905 or the Broome County Humane Society, 2 Jackson Street, Binghamton, NY 13903, to commemorate CJ's love for animals.

Dear Charles & Shelley, I only learned recently of the loss of your son "CJ." I can't tell you how very sorry I am. Chuck, I knew you for a period of time in High School. I always remember your kindness, spirit and sportsmanship. I was touched by the loss of your mom years ago. I thought of her when I lost my mother in 1988. Your boy looked like a great kid, to be sure. I was touched in reading all the love and kindness that CJ gave to others, just like his father. I pray that time is healing your terrible grief and that his cherished memories carry you and Shelley forward with grace and peace. God's be with you. Tim Lempke

Shelley & Chuck: My heart breaks knowing the pain you are in and the road you must travel. I would not wish this on anyone but I do know that family, friends and support will help ease your burden. Some say take things one day at a time...I say take things one second at a time and do what you need to do for you...for each other. Lean on each other and those around you. Your memories and love of C.J. will get you thru the darkest of days. His gift of life to others thru organ donation is a wonderful gift and that too will help you down this road. Hugs, love & prayers my friends.
