Charles Edgar Duharte, age 60, of Wilmington, passed away peacefully at his residence on Thursday, November 28, 2019.
Charles was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He lived most of his life in and around Fort Washington, PA. He married Jay Jackson and they moved to Wilmington, DE. Chuck was a voracious reader. He also liked playing his guitar and bass. Rarely could he be found without guitar in hand. Chuck was also a musician and enjoyed all types of music. He had a passion for cars, especially Corvettes – boy, did he enjoy his Corvettes!
Chuck served his country in the Army. He never forgot his Army days and pals. Chuck also worked for the US Postal service for 31 years. He earned numerous service awards, including Employee of the Quarter. He was always a conscientious worker and was well-liked by his coworkers.
Chuck is survived by his wife, Jay; his son, Vincenzo; and his mother, Mary Assn. He has a brother, Mathew, and two sisters, Ann Wetzel and Ellen Harner. We will miss his effervescent personality, his sense of humor and the prettiest blue eye you ever laid eyes on. Goodnight, my Love, until we meet again.
Friends and family are invited to visitation on Friday after 10 AM at Mealey Funeral Home, 2509 Limestone Road where funeral services will begin at 11 AM. Burial will follow at the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Bear, DE at 1 PM.
