New Paltz, New York Formerly of Cold Spring


Charles Nobile Jr., long time Cold Spring resident, passed away peacefully on January 17th at his home in New Paltz, N.Y.

Born on June 27, 1934 at St. Vincent’s Hospital in New York City to the late Charles and Mary (Cella) Nobile, he attended Our Lady of Pompei Parochial School until age 12, at which point the family moved to Garrison, N.Y. in 1946. After attending Garrison Union Free School, he then attended Haldane High School from which he graduated in 1953 having played four years of both football and basketball. His senior yearbook described him as “handsome and muscular”... “always a hello” and “amiable Charlie.”

After graduation, Charlie worked for Polhemus Construction before joining the armed services in 1956 and serving eighteen months in Germany with the 3rd Armored Division from which he was discharged in 1958. On October 7, 1961, Charlie married Rose Marie Dillon, to whom he was married for 49 years.

Also in 1961, Charlie began his 34 year career working for the New York State Department of Correction at both Green Haven Prison and Downstate Correctional Facility attaining the rank of Lieutenant. At Downstate he spent several years in charge of the transportation unit and retired on April 1,1995.

Following retirement, Charlie enjoyed target shooting, golf, telling a good story, and spending time with his family. Above all, Charlie was a family man who loved his children and grandchildren and would do anything for them. One of his favorite expressions was “tutta la famiglia,” all the family, or family is everything.

He is predeceased by his wife, Rose Marie, and survived by his three sons: Michael (Stephanie) of Beacon, NY; Peter (Kym Tiffany) of Gardiner, NY; and John (Amy) of Hyde Park, NY, as well as five grandchildren: Matt, Tori, Michael, Sam and Charlie. Charles is also survived by his brother Robert Nobile, his sister Louise Allen and numerous nieces and nephews.
