PINSKY, CHARLES, - 95, of Margate, Passed away peacefully in Virginia with family at his bedside. Charles was born July 9th, 1922 in Bueno Aires, Argentina to parents Hershel and Sarah who emigrated from Russia to the United States. Charles’ surname was Pilchick which was changed during their immigration process through Ellis Island. He was the second of three children. Charles attended Atlantic City High School and shortly thereafter enlisted in the Armed Forces. In the Army stationed in Paris, France he was assigned at the base of the Eifel Tower. Charles was on leave in London, England where he met and married Esther. They enjoyed a 72-year marriage up until Esther’s passing earlier this year. After the Army, Charles worked in the furrier business with father Hershel and then joined the Prudential Insurance Company where he retired after a lengthy career. Charles & Family joined Temple Emeth Shalom and held his membership for over 50 years and was active in the brotherhood and other functions in the synagogue. Charles enjoyed sports and was an avid bowler and tennis player, and a fan of all the Philadelphia professional sports teams. He traveled the world by visiting 22 countries and met many new friends who were always invited to stay at his Margate residence. Family was important to Charles and he loved barbecues in the back-yard and spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. A life-long New Jersey resident, Charles relocated to Montpelier, VA earlier this year living at the home of son Bruce and wife Marianne. Charles is pre-deceased in life by wife Esther, and is survived by his daughter Jane, son Bruce and wife Marianne, Grandchildren Sarah, Joshua, David, Adam, and Jessica, Great-grandchildren Paige, Eleanor, Nicholas, Samantha, and Alixandra, along with many nieces and nephews in the U.S., England, and Israel. Charles’ brother Hyman and Sister Sylvia reside in Florida. He loved to dine out with friends and family, enjoying one of his favorite places, the Shore Dinner. We have a vivid memory of him always saying- “the soup should be boiling hot”. Charles will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Graveside service for family and friends is Friday, 11/10/17, 2:00 pm at Rodef Shalom Cemetery, 6691 Black Horse Pike, Egg Harbor Township, NJ.
