Beloved husband of Sharon Tevis Finch. Cherished father of Carin Beth (Steven Schreier) Goldfarb, Amy Jo (Jared) Zerman, and Julie Goldfarb (Jeffrey Rose) Hantman-Rose. Proud grandfather of Abigail Hannah Schreier, Harrison Alexander (fiancee Amanda Vitale) Hantman, Tyler Edward Hantman, Mitchell Baron Zerman, and Adam Elijah Zerman.

Mr. Goldfarb is also survived by Flora Goldfarb, his fond former wife and mother of his children, and many dear friends.

Everyone will miss him deeply and lovingly remember his unique personality, wit, intelligence, skills, and charm. He was an entrepreneur from age 12 on, carried on and grew a successful family business for 66 years until he retired at age 90. A proud veteran of the Korean War, Chuck passed away at age 93, still strong and self-determined until the end. He lived a good long life, well spent. He leaves more friends than can be numbered. We will all miss him forever. There will never be another.
