On Thursday November 9th, Charles Rhoads passed away after a long illness.  Charles, Charlie to many of us at The Commentator, was a likable and important member of the Lehigh Valley Commentator.

Charlie was one of the Commentator’s original “Incorporators”,  a major stock holder, and member of the Board of Directors.  His knowledge of printing and publications was a valuable asset to the Commentator Board of Directors.  Charlie also served as the Commentator’s Advertising Manager until health issues caused his retirement.

Always upbeat with a laugh and smile, Charlie will be missed by all!

Born in Philadelphia on October 7, 1946.  Charlie was a lifelong member of the Germantown Monthly Meeting (Religious Society of Friends).  He had a BA in Business, attending Philadelphia Textile University.

Charlie was an Army Veteran, serving in a non combat status as an ambulance driver in a MASH unit six miles from the DMZ.

Charlie was co-owner of Rhoads Press -1976 till its 2004 closing.

He is survived by his wife Patricia, brothers Jonathan and wife Julia, George and wife Frances, twin brother Phillip and wife Jane, brother-in-law Adam Kendon, sister-in-law Barbara Rhoads, 13 nieces and nephews as well as 24 great nieces and nephews.  Preceding him in death were his sister Margaret Kendon and brother Edward Rhoads.
