Charles John Guare, 94, joined his beloved wife Jane in heaven on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 with his loving children by his side. Charles was born in Schenectady, New York to John and Helen (Boehm) Guare on January 7, 1925. He graduated from Nott Terrace High School and joined the Army, where he served in the Pacific during the Second World War.

He graduated from Union College with a Bachelor’s of Science in chemistry and
earned his PhD at Indiana University. He went on to work as a research chemist at the General Electric Research and Development Center and at Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory until his retirement. He returned to Union College as an adjunct professor of chemistry and was well loved by his students. Charles also volunteered as a teacher of English as a Second Language.

Charles was an excellent athlete and pursued his best in all things, winning gold and silver medals at the New York Senior Games in tennis. He was also an accomplished ballroom dancer, a skill he acquired with his beloved Jane, and taught for several years at the Glenville Senior Center. He was also a Cornell Extension Master Gardener.

Charles embodied intelligence, grace, kindness, and competence. His gentle courtesy was his calling card, and generosity was as natural to him as breathing. The fact that he was memorable to so many was a mystery to him, but not to them.

Charles is survived by his loving children: Cathie (Frank) Cryan, Peter, Elizabeth and John; his beloved grandchildren Timothy (Margie) Cryan, Kelly (Shawn) Forcellini, and Shannon (Matt) Roddy; his great-grandchildren Sean, Devon (Tucker), Grace, Kiera, Brielle, Cassandra, Ciara, Cooper, Cole, Daire; and great great-grandson Boden.

Visitation will be held Monday May 6, 2019 from 1-3PM at the Bond Funeral Home 1614 Guilderland Avenue Schenectady. A Graveside service for Charles will follow at 3:30PM at Park Cemetery Sacandaga Road Scotia.

The family requests that Charles's well-wishers honor his generosity by donating to the charity of their choice and not send flowers.
