Charles “Chuck” D. Putrino, 58, of Lockwood passed away on Friday, March 18, 2016 at the Robert Packer Hospital after a courageous battle with lung cancer.
He was predeceased by his parents, Charles E. Putrino and Fay Adams; daughter, Sheila.
Chuck is survived by his wife, Selma Putrino; children, Jeff (Connie) Hernandez of Waverly, Sarah Teeples of Maine, NY; five grandchildren; and of course his beloved dog, Chas.
He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed a good game of golf and hunting. Chuck was known for his very well maintained lawn, which he took great pride.
Chuck was the maintenance supervisor at the Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre for over 30 years and proudly served in the Navy from 1976 to 1980.
To quote Chuck in his final moments he was probably thinking “I fought the lawn, and the lawn won!”
