To the McBride Family:
I was saddened to hear of Charly's passing. I had just learned of the news and had been looking forward to seeing him and catching up at the 50th Bishop Reilly Reunion.
My memories of Charly during our elementary school years was one of fondness. Charly was unfailingly kind and funny, and never took himself seriously. He genuinely cared about others.
Charly will be in my thoughts and prayers, it is my hope that he is dancing with the angels. Rest in peace.

Charly was one of the kindest people I have ever met. I was his babysitter in Little Neck. He was a typical impish little boy. After he and his brothers combed out the window one night he quickly came back into the house, apologized, and gave me a hug. He couldn't have been more than eight, but his sensitivity and good heartedness was already evident. He will be sorely missed.

Rest In Peace Mr. McBride, you were an integral part in my growth and enjoyment in participating in the Lions Club. I looked forward to the annual Udalls cove clean-up and our meetings in the Annex. Thank you for teaching me the joys of community service.

Chaz was a lifelong loyal friend who was always generous with his time and effort. A great guy to be around because he enjoyed having a good time! I will miss him but am comforted by the notion he is in a better place! Til we meet again my brother!
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

I remember Charly coming to my house on the tractor to hitch up the P.S. 94 Memorial Day Parade floats. What would we have done without his guidance and help on Parade matters? Later, as he passed the torch to new parents and students and we "graduated" too, he was still devoted to working on each and every Memorial Day Parade - setting up tents, bringing his groups of youth volunteers and mentoring those wonderful kids throughout. At every Parade, as we waited to join the Line of March, Charly was there handing out water to those of us waiting - sometimes in unbearable heat and with little escape from the sun or temperatures - to give us water. And he did the same for the annual Udalls Cove Cleanups - setting up tents, bringing water and sodas for the volunteers and bringing his young Lions to mentor them at this community event too. He was a truly devoted public and community servant. Thank you, Charly, and bless you for all you did and the legacy of giving you have left behind.

As Grand Knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council #5911, I remember Charles with a great deal of fondness. He was dedicated to the community and was quite active in the Lions Club.. I remember him at the Little/Douglaston Memorial Parade. Now at this parade who he always had plenty of water and offer it to many during those hot days at the parade for those of us marching. Charlie you were a great guy and will be dearly missed. God bless you Charlie.
