He is survived by his wife, Deryl Collins Foss and his children: Tina Foss Carrieri & husband Lino, Gretchen Foss Easdon and Mark Lamson Foss & wife Tracy. He is also survived by his beloved grandchildren: Evelyn Foss Easdon; Murphy Joseph Foss, Madeline Rose Foss, and Duncan Charles Foss. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute or The Kaplan House, Danvers MA.



You will be missed everyday.
Rest In Peace Charlie. Though I only knew you for thr past couple of years, your warm and kind spirit always shined through. I was fortunate that our paths crossed. Sincerely, Mark Delaney
So very sorry for your loss Daryl. Love Alice Remare
I am so deeply saddened, and share in your loss of Charlie. My heartfelt condolences to your whole family. Keeping you all in my thoughts, and prayers. Wishing you all continued warm and Happy memories of one fine Man! Paul Lyden
Although we never had the pleasure of meeting Charlie, all of what we do know shines through in your children. Tina (my dear friend) & Gretchen are strong, smart, independent woman whom I did have the pleasure of getting to know over the past few years. I hear nothing but great things about your son and of course Evelyn. So our wish for Charlie is that he rest in peace as he so deserves. Our prayers are with the family. Cherish the memories. Paula & Ron DeMaio
