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.

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.
