Chelebian, Charles A. (Charley)
Rochester: July 8, 2016, at age 24. "Free yourself from yourself". Charley succumbed to his opiate addiction ironically only 3 days after coming out of a month long inpatient rehab full of vim, vigor, and excitement about his future goals and plans.
Beloved son of Lynette Chelebian and Jack Chelebian, M.D. (Gail Farrell); brothers, Simon George and Alex Chelebian; stepbrothers, Ray, Matt and Bobby; uncle Larry Scherff (Carol Vella); aunts & uncles Tom & Annie Hoglind and Karen & Hovsep Koundakjian and several cousins.
Charley was a joyful, kind, compassionate young man, always ready with a helping hand. He had a "big shining ray of light grin". He was much loved by his family & numerous friends; he will be missed.
The family will celebrate Charley's life on July 23, 2016 at 1:00pm at Pomodoro Grill, 1290 University Ave., Rochester NY, with a brief ceremony followed by a reception. Please consider honoring Charley with a donation to the Armenia Tree Project online. Online Condolences welcomed at:
