Charles L. Perez Jr.

April 16, 1964 — June 11, 2020

On Thursday, June 11, 2020, Charles L Perez Jr., Chuck, 56, suffered a fatal stroke and was called home to our Heavenly Father. Charles was the beloved and only son of both of his surviving parents, Charles L. and Mary Lou Perez.

Charles was born in Wilkes-Barre on April 16, 1964. He graduated from Elmer L. Meyers High School, Wilkes-Barre Area School District, Class of 1982. Charles was employed by Motor World for many years and most recently worked for Latona Trucking.

Charles had a devilish and well-developed sense of humor, coupled with an infectious laugh, and he loved to have a good laugh. These attributes will be missed most by all those who knew and loved him. Charles also had a penchant for flying remote control planes and was a member of the RC Flyers. His friends will tell you that he would do anything for anyone, that he would remove the shirt from his back if you needed it.

Charles was preceded in death by the pride & joy of his life, his son, Charles L. Perez III.

In addition to his parents, Charles is survived by his wife, Margie Lexie Perez, and they celebrated their Sixteenth Wedding Anniversary in May; his sister Mary Lou Perez-Zerfoss & her husband, Frank Zerfoss; adored & beloved grandson Colby Perez; niece & God-daughter Jocelyn Zerfoss; cousin & “2nd sister” Cathy Naessig; step-children Janelle Sienkiewicz, Tyler Stobodzian, and Jillian Stobodzian; aunts, uncles, numerous cousins and cherished friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to a trust fund that was established for Colby Perez, when his daddy passed away. Please make checks payable to Mary Lou Zerfoss, trust administrator, and send to 9 S. Welles Street, Wilkes-Barre, PA. 18702.

Friends may visit with the family on Monday, June 15th, from 5 to 7 PM at McLaughlin’s, 142 S. Washington Street in Wilkes-Barre. Interment will be private.

“God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
