Charles W. Beeler, 84 of Manlius, passed away on January 13, 2020 at Crouse Hospital surrounded by family after a brief illness.

A lifetime resident of the Syracuse area, Chuck was predeceased by his parents, Charles and Mary (Kelley) Beeler. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Joan (Salanger) Beeler, sons, Chuck (Paula) and Doug (Kathleen), daughter, Kelly (Mike) Iudice; grandchildren, Charlie, Kerry, Sarah, Dan and Maggie; and sister, Mary Linda Reals.

An Army veteran, Chuck attended Cortland State and Syracuse University and was a proud graduate of the Pebble Hill School. He was active in the alumni association at Manlius Pebble Hill and was inducted into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 2012. Chuck enjoyed entertaining his many friends and family at the Beeler cottage on DeRuyter Lake. He twice served as president of the DeRuyter Lake Association. In recent years he was known to boaters around the lake for his tip of the cap as they passed by. Chuck and Joan were longtime season ticket holders for Syracuse University football and basketball. He remained an avid fan of the Orange, even cheering on the team’s recent upset of Virginia.

Calling hours will be 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Friday, January 17 at Newell-Fay Manlius Chapel, 8171 Cazenovia Rd., Manlius. The funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, January 18 at 10:00 a.m. at Holy Cross Church followed by burial at St. Mary’s Cemetery.

Contributions may be made to Manlius Pebble Hill at 5300 Jamesville Rd., Syracuse, NY 13224 or Tioughnioga Lake Preservation Foundation, P.O. Box 476, DeRuyter, NY 13052.

I am so sorry to hear about Chuck's passing. I had the pleasure of working with Chuck while I was employed at MPH. One of the nicest guys I have ever met. I could always count on Chuck to help wherever and whenever we needed him. He was a man with deep Syracuse roots....and I loved hearing his stories about how his mother, Mary, and grandmother "Ma Beeler" both worked at his beloved Pebble Hill. I was delighted by his sense of humor, inspired by his deep love of his family, and cherished the time we spent together. After I left MPH, I continued to visit with Chuck at DeRuyter Lake (our camp is across the way.) He always welcomed visitors to his dock with a cold beer and a wave of his hat. I am honored to have met him and his family and send JOan and the kids my deepest condolences.

My sincerest condolences to Joan and the family. Although I haven't been in contact for a number of years, I must say that I always found Chuck very congenial and fun to be around. He and I more or less grew up as young DeWitt friends playing basketball in the old gym at Rev. Carmichael's DeWitt Community Church and also sharing experiences at the Dome in later years. I'm sure he will be missed by many. May he be in a better place. Rest easy my friend.
