November 3, 1954 – May 19, 2021
New Windsor, NY

Charles “Chuck” T. Greeney, of New Windsor, NY entered into eternal rest on May 19, 2021 at Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital, Newburgh, NY. He was 66 years old.

The son of the late William Greeney and Adele (Tullio) Greeney, Chuck was born on November 3, 1954 in Brooklyn, NY. He was raised and loved his home on Beaver Dam Lake and would visit his parents until their death. Chuck resided in New Windsor, NY and was also a part time resident of Owego, NY.

Chuck was a retired Federal government employee with over 35 yrs. of service.

He was an active member of the Black Rock Fish & Game Club and of the St. George’s Episcopal Church Cemetery Committee in Newburgh NY. Chuck enjoyed camping in Pennsylvania, visiting casinos, and was an avid history buff. He helped many older Veterans to find their medals and helped some to get into the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor. His greatest achievement was being awarded a proclamation from the Mayor of Owego naming a “Charles T. Greeney Day” for helping to promote the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall several years ago.

A family statement reads: “Chuck was a lover of all people, animals and his God. He was a faith-filled person and always ended all his conversations with “Be Blessed”. Chuck was a giving person who was kind to everyone who crossed his path. His favorite saying was “How’s your day going?” He had a great sense of humor and was always willing to give up his time to help others in all ways possible. He will be dearly missed by all for his kindness.

Chuck is survived by his brother: William Greeney (Diane) of New Windsor, NY; nephew John Greeney (Jessica) and their children, Abigail and Lucas. He is also survived by his fiancée, Barbara Kowitski of Endwell, NY and his longtime dearest friends, Robin Bello and Catherine Costello. He was predeceased by his parents, William and Adele Greeney as well as his beloved dogs, Clancy and Gizmo.

Visitation will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Monday, May 24th at Quigley-Sullivan Funeral Home, Inc., 337 Hudson Street, Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY. Based on new CDC guidelines adopted by NYS, fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear masks or be socially distanced, but unvaccinated individuals must continue to wear masks and be socially distanced in the funeral home.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 25th at St. Thomas of Canterbury Church, 340 Hudson Street, Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY. Interment will follow the Mass at Bethlehem Cemetery, New Windsor, NY.

My deepest sympathies to Chuck's family. I worked with Chuck for many years and we became good friends. He was the most thoughtful and funniest person I ever met. My sister and I often met him at Turning Stone for a day of fun and an always entertaining lunch. Chuck always had a story to tell, and even if the situation was of adversity, he saw the humor in it and had us laughing hysterically. He touched everyone's lives and will be missed dearly.

My deepest sympathy to Chuck's family on their loss. I met Chuck 6 years ago through my sister who worked with him. He had a great personality and he would have us in stitches. I was shocked to learn of his passing. Rest in peace.

I met Chuck when he periodically worked out of my Binghamton, NY office while he was in town attending to the needs of a loved one. During those times Chuck and I attended a lunch-time Bible study together---until he eventually got kicked out! When I had invited him, I hadn't realized it was "women only". Chuck took it in stride, but the Bible study was definitely not as lively without him! He was a unique and wonderful person. He was very intelligent, humorous and caring. He was a patriot as well as a strong Christian. He monetarily supported politicians even in other states whom he believed were on the right track and he sent them letters of encouragement. Even when he was in terrible pain he was concerned about my relatively minor health issues and texted me to see how I was doing. I was so touched by his caring. Whether he knew it or not, once the threat of COVID-19 was over I had plans to do some kind of ministry with him. I really felt that God was leading me there and that we would be a great team. I was mistaken. God had different plans for Chuck. Those of us he left behind will miss him terribly, but will be comforted in remembering his laugh, his quips, his insights, his generosity and his love. My sincere condolences to all of Chuck's family and friends. His prayer for us all to "be blessed" was answered for all of us who knew him. We were indeed blessed by his presence and will remember him fondly. Sincerely, Elaine Benjamin

My heart is breaking as I write this I am so sad to hear of my old friend’s passing. I have known Chuck for many years through my friend Dale and he was a part of my family for a long time. So many memories to share, too many to mention. Chuck and Dale were at the hospital when I gave birth to my oldest son Anthony. He was always up for a board game or a good joke. Whenever my family needed a friend,Chuck was there. He surprised me at my father’s funeral because I hadn’t seen him in years. It was so good to see him again! I wanted to reach out and see how he was doing every time I rode past his home. I wish I checked in with him. You never know how much time you have on this earth and I always thought we had more time. Rest In Peace my friend, love Chryssy and James Shoop and Rita Losinno
