OBITUARY

Charles R. “Chuck” Queen, of Woburn, died unexpectedly, Wednesday, March 28th at the age of sixty-two.

Born and educated in Woburn, Chuck was the son of the late Lillian T. (Boudreau) and William J. Queen Jr. Chuck was with Denise (DiNapoli) Queen for 43 years, from the age of 13, when they met at the Kennedy Middle School. They had 2 children, Bill and Vanessa, and though estranged from his family for the last few years, they have fond memories of him and are heartbroken over his sudden death.

Chuck was an avid outdoorsman who loved fishing, especially at Horn Pond & hunting with his son & friends up in Groton. He passed on his love of nature and his artistic abilities to his family.

For many years he was known in Woburn for his Camo van which he and his children painted. He could usually be found down at the pond. At family events and on our vacations to Hershey Park as well as the White Mountains, Chuck was the picture taker. He loved photography, yet another thing he passed on to his children and grandchildren.

He was also proud of being a Teamster & truck driver. Chuck worked at Consolidated Freightways on Salem St., in Woburn from 1976 until they closed in 2002. He suffered from many health issues which began to stop him from doing what he loved. Chuck was a big man with a big beard and taught his children so much. They are thankful for the years they had and hope that he has finally found peace.

Chuck was the cherished son of the late Lillian T. (Boudreau) Queen and William J. Queen, Jr. and his wife Patricia M. (Conza). Devoted father of William M. Queen and his wife Amanda of NH and Vanessa Queen of Woburn and their mother Denise Queen. Dear brother of Susan Queen and her companion Ronald Boucher of Pepperell, Barbara Hill and her husband David of Woburn, the late Lillian “Lee” Ramos and step-brother of John P.

    My nephew Chuckie, as he was called as a kid. He was 10 years younger then me. When he came to visit I would love to hold him. I guess I thought he was a doll. He was so loved especially by his grandfather Henry, Who had 5 daughters. He was the first grandson and boy in our family. He taught him how to fish and hunt. He actually was the only niece or nephew that looked a lot like me. I kind of felt like he was my brother. I just wish we could of spent more time together. Peace of the Holy Spirit be with his family. May He Rest in Peace. I love you Chuckie. Aunt Margie
