Charles D. "Charlie" Vassar

Charlie is survived by his 3 sisters, Elisabeth, Katherine, and Katrina, stepbrother, James Corey, all of Syracuse, stepmom, JoAnn Vassar of N. Syr., niece, Ava and nephew, Logan of Syracuse, maternal grandparents, John and Lee LaParo of Onondaga Hill, his beloved cat, Tallie, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
