Charles Edward Godette, 71

Charles Edward Godette passed away on Nov. 4, at Glens Falls Hospital.

        

Chuck was born on Jan. 8, 1942, in Granville, N.Y., the son of the late Robert and Verna (Flaska) Godette.

Chuck worked for General Electric for ten years and then became a postal carrier in West Pawlet, Vt. He was an Army Veteran serving most of his time from 1959 to 1962 in Germany in the Military Police. On Dec. 3, 1965, he married Constance Taylor.

Chuck loved nature and the outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved gardening, both flowers and vegetables…giving mother nature a hand. He and his family loved to go camping. One of his favorite spots was Maine.

Chuck was a loving brother, husband, father, grandfather and uncle. He was predeceased by his parents, a brother Donald and a sister Elaine Park and his faithful companion Shadow. Survivors are his wife Constance Lynne (Taylor) Godette, and his sons Charles and his companion Kristen Kearney, and Darren Godette and his husband Henry Jordan, Jr. He was blessed with three grandchildren, Hailey and Robert Godette and Cora Sue Jordan. He is survived by his sister Linda Taylor and her husband Ronald and his sister-in-law, Rita Godette. Also surviving is Chuck’s canine companion, Zeus. In addition he leaves behind many extended family members.

Chuck was a member of the Falvey Fringi VFW, the Modern Woodmen of America and West Pawlet Fish and Game.

A funeral service will be held on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 3 p.m. at the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, N.Y. Burial will follow at the Mountainview Cemetery in West Pawlet. Friends may call on Friday, Nov. 8 from 4 to 7 p.m.
