We recently learned that one of our volunteers, Charles Schwarz, passed away. Charlie, as he was known to us, joined the Four Freedoms Park community in early 2014, quickly becoming one of the most steadfast and loyal members of our volunteer group. He visited the Park most weekends, driving from his home in Astoria across the 59th St. bridge to share his love of and extensive knowledge in Rooseveltian history with those lucky enough to find themselves in his tour group.
Thank you, Charlie, for the wonderful contributions you made to the Park, our community, and beyond. You will be greatly missed.
His obituary, printed in the NY Times, is below.
