In Memorial

ALBANY – Charles E. Marks, 68, of Albany, died peacefully with his family by his side on Friday, February 17, 2012 in the Hospice Inn at St. Peter’s Hospital.  Mr. Marks was born at home in Elizaville, NY, and raised in Albany.  He was a graduate of  St. Joseph’s Academy and Vincentian Institute, and served his country in the U.S. Navy from 1962 to 1966.  He was employed by the Tobin Packing Co. and the Gold Bond Division of National Gypsum Co. at the Port of  Rensselaer, retiring in 2009.  Charlie was a member of the Joseph E. Zaloga Post #1520 of the American Legion, and an avid fan of the New York Giants and Mets.  He loved garage sales, auctions and an occasional trip to the racino with his sister.  Gathering for Sunday dinners with our extended family was a highlight of Charlie’s week.  He loved us all very much and our weekly dinners were our special times to interact across generations.

Charlie is survived by his beloved wife Linda Lusso Marks; his daughters Michelle Marks (Dan Wolfe) of Averill Park and Casey Marks of Albany; his sister Mary Ellen Miles (David) of Menands; his brother Ken Marks (Debbi) of Rensselaer; his nieces and nephews Peter, Kevin and Shane Marks, Melissa Rezey (Mike), Kelly Yates (Seth), and Rebecca Keith (Dan), and Leanne Little (John), Kenny and Ashley Marks; his great nieces and nephews Emma, Carly, John, Olivia, Makenna, and Danny; and his special friends Mary Quinn, Brendan, Patrick and Dylan.  He was predeceased by his parents Charles and Ruth Cunningham Marks, and his brother Kevin Marks.

Funeral services will be held in the Hans Funeral Home, 1088 Western Ave., Albany, Tuesday morning at 10:00.  Relatives and friends are invited, and may call at the funeral home Monday from 4-8 p.m.  Interment will be in the Maple Avenue Cemetery, Fultonville, NY.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to St. Peter’s Hospice, 315 S.

Charlie is someone who will never be forgotten. He lives on in all of us—all of the love, kindness, and humor that he shared, the strength that he gave when needed, his calm manner, his smile—all of these things touched our hearts and our lives in ways that can never be erased. What a wonderful legacy! We were so blessed to have known him and we are saddened that he has left us so soon. Our deepest sympathies to Linda, Casey, Michelle, Mary, Dave, Kenny, Debbi, their families, and the many nieces, nephews, cousins, family, and friends of this wonderful man, Charlie Marks.
