Charles S. Petroff, 57, of Liverpool, passed away peacefully on June 14th with his loving family by his side. He was born on January 26, 1962 to the late Stanley and Lucile Petroff.
He was a very devoted and loving husband and father. He is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Nancy Petroff; sons, Matthew, David and Joseph Petroff; siblings, John (Gale Mittelman) Petroff of Long Island and Karen (Roger) O’Neill of Delray Beach, FL and several nieces and nephews.
Chuck was a hands-on guy who was good at figuring out how things worked whether working as an Electrical Technician, a Department Manager at Ball Corporation, or at the Liverpool School District. He was an active and dedicated member at North Syracuse Baptist Church. He derived a lot of pleasure by using his gifts to help others. He volunteered his time going on mission trips to Cuba and New Orleans and doing odd jobs at church a few times a week.
Anyone who knew Chuck knew that he loved the Miami Dolphins and loved working on his 1966 Mustang.
Chuck’s most joyful times were spent with his family creating many happy memories with fun vacations at the beach, always making time for his sons and encouraging them in everything they did.
