Charles S. Ferraro

March 26, 2021 Kennett Square, PA "Charlie"

Charles S. Ferraro, or “Charlie” as he was affectionately known, passed away on Friday, March 26, 2021 at Paoli Hospital.

Born 1949 in West Grove, PA, Charlie was the son of the late Charles J. Ferraro and Millie Daddario Ferraro.

Charlie had many talents. His main occupation was plumbing and he was also known as a “Mr. Fix It”. He was highly skilled in many areas and whether you had an issue with your vehicle or with your home’s plumbing, Charlie could (and would) fix it.

Charlie has always enjoyed motorcycles, ice hockey and ice skating, tennis and old cars. Sports were a great joy of his (Charlie always rooted for the Phillies or the Eagles, of course!). Charlie also enjoyed growing mushrooms.

He was a genuinely giving person and had a wonderful sense of humor. He was a true jokester and all-around nice guy. Charlie will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Charlie is survived by his mother, Millie Ferraro; his sisters, Judy Ferraro, Charlotte Ferraro, Annette Marini and her son, Andrew, his nephew; Mary Lou Drumheller and her husband, Rusty; his nephew, Matthew Drumheller, his wife Nina and their son, Ryan; his niece, Kelly Klapcuniak and her husband, James.

In addition to his father, Charlie was predeceased by his niece, Victoria “Tori” Marini.

Due to pandemic restrictions, a memorial service will be planned for Charlie at a later date. The website will be updated accordingly.

In lieu of flowers, Charlie’s family kindly requests that donations be made to the American Kidney Fund, 11921 Rockville Pike, Suite 300, Rockville, MD 20852.

  3. I remember Charlie when he came down to Holloway Automotive next to my mom. He was polite and had the prettiest long hair. This was at least 50 yrs since I’ve seen him. My thoughts and prayers with the family. God bless them.

  4. Charlie was one the funniest guys I had ever met! My dad Frank abs him where like a living comedy skit, I’m sure today they are together in heaven together eating a “Vat” of linguine with white clam sauce and shorting the shit together on their way to do a plumbing call! “Beeks” we Pompeo boys will forever remember the creative Nick names we had for the “Beagle”!

  6. Charlie had such a major positive impact on all of our lives. A hugely reliable, incredibly helpful, and truly loyal friend. He was much more like an uncle to me. We lived and worked together for many years in both California and Pennsylvania. What a unique sense of humor this man had! He was absolutely one of a kind and will be dearly missed. Our deepest condolences on behalf of the Pompeo and DiGiacinto families.

  8. Charlie was an important influence in the first 18 years of my life. His mellow nature helped to keep us all in line from time to time. He was also a very valued partner in my family’s mushroom farm operation. I know my parents and grandparents appreciated him so much. I can only hope that you and your family know that you were, are and always will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love you Charlie Boy! Peace be with you all.

  10. Ferraro Family, Very sorry about hearing of Charlie passing. I remember him while I was with my father Jake Conner to pick up mushrooms. Charlie always had a smile, a laugh and that long ponytail.
    Be at peace knowing he is in heaven today. Kennett Square lost another good person.

  11. I didn”t know how lucky I was to have some one I could call any time and talk about some thing I was working on, or some thing that happened that day that was so CRAZY no one else would believe. I always told Charlie I was so glad he was here to tell people some of the crazy thing that happen while working in the mushroom house, really did happen.Some times we laughed so hard we had tears coming out of our eyes and couldn”t catch our breath. Charlie was one of the best ,always there to help out never asking any thihg in return!

  15. Dear Mrs. Ferraro, Judy, Charlotte, Annette and Mary Lou. I’m so sorry and saddened to hear about Charlie’s passing. Charlie, Eddy Zunino and I began first grade together at St. Pat’s and, although our lives took different paths, we remained friends ever since. I would run in to him often around the area. Every time I would run in to him I would see the same smile and the same cheerful personality and the same sense of humor that I first encountered in 1955 in first grade. He will be missed by many.

    Sincerely yours,

    Gabe Valentino

  16. Can’t count the amount of times he helped me and we would eventually be laughing about something. Gonna miss him. Rest in peace.

  17. What can I say about Charlie, an all around nice guy. I will truly miss our talks when he came to plow my driveway for me. If he had time, we had coffee together and I always had biscotti and pizzelles for him. I know he touched everyone’s heart that he met. RIP. Elaine.

  18. I went to Unionville with Charlie. We were a small class , around 98. We all knew each other and got along pretty well. Charlie was a happy boy . Im sorry he’s gone and I hope his family has many comforting memories.

  20. I am really sorry to hear of Charlie passing. I remember riding dirt bikes with him many years ago, and more recently would see him at the plumbing supply or at Peter Lumber. He was always fun to talk to. I offer my sympathy and prayers to the Ferraro family as you grieve. I know this will be a big loss, God Bless you.
