Bolcar died Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016.
Charles William Bolcar, 83, went to our Lord peacefully with his family at his side, Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016.
Born and raised in Clifton, New Jersey, he was drafted into the Cleveland Indians Minor League Baseball organization; and then served in the Armed Forces in post-war Germany from 1956-58.
The definition of a hard worker, he was a firefighter with the Clifton Fire Department, painting and roofing houses in his spare time in order to raise his five children. He retired as Deputy Chief after 31 years of faithful service. Chuck and his wife, Nancy, relocated to Spring Hill, Florida, for the last 25 years. He was an active member of St. Theresa Catholic Church and the St. Vincent DePaul Society. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
Chuck enjoyed fishing, bowling and playing chess and was also a lover of cruise ship vacations. He had a witty, clean sense of humor with a contagious laugh that could make the flattest joke into the best joke ever.
He was pre-deceased by his son Gary.
Chuck is survived by his wife, Nancy (married for 58 years); three sons, Brian, Steve and Charles; daughter, Cathleen; 3 very special daughters-in-law, Joann, Ellen and Elycia; three grandsons, Brian, Steven and Daniel; five granddaughters, Danielle, Samantha, Nelestra, Olivia and Jillian; beloved great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Please join us for either of our two funeral Masses: 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, 2016, at Resurrection Catholic Church in Winter Garden, Florida, or 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, at St. Theresa Catholic Church, Spring Hill, Florida.
In lieu of flowers, please make any donation, in memory of Charles Bolcar, to the St. Vincent DePaul Society (SVDP) of St. Theresa Catholic Church, 1107 Commercial Way, Spring Hill, FL 34606, Attn: SVDP.
