Charlie Marqusee, Our Husband, Daddy, Grandpa, Uncle and Friend wants to say goodbye to one and all. He had the best life anyone could wish for. His memories of the last 86 years have certainly been varied and wonderful and had he to do it all over again; he wouldn’t change a single thing. Well, maybe one thing, the Mesothelioma he contracted while in the Navy in the Second World War. That was the nasty cancer that caused his healthy body to give into breakdown mode that reared its ugly head a little more than a year ago. The doctors gave him 2 to four months to live but he dragged that sentence out to last until now. It finally got the better of him. Now it’s up to the next Generation to make their mark. To continue life adventures and chalk up those good memories. Charlie leaves his loving wife, Helga, three children, Vicki, Rob, and Cathie, Vicki’s husband, Joe Maguire, and Cathie’s husband, James Pustejovsky, as well as Rob’s five children Daniel, Jason, Megan, Matthew, and Katie and Cathie’s son, Zac and her daughter Sophie. Charlie was a pioneer in Florida and started and avalanche of building in the sleepy towns of Boca Raton, Florida and Margate, Florida, which was the home of alligators and Cypress tress as well as dirt roads. Now these communities are thriving and many builders joined Charlie since he started things rolling. We now have a first class university called Florida Atlantic University, several hospitals and all the trimmings of a fabulous vibrant city. Charlie was a good friend to all the big and little people he met. Children were drawn to him and asked for his advice on schools and what colleges they should apply to. He had a large research library which helped him advise his friends as to what doctors to see and what city they should travel to to get the very best care and expertise. Charlie, you were loved by one and all. His wishes-No Funeral-No Service, Just remember him Fondly. Please, no flowers or food. If you must, please make a donation to your favorite charity.
