Obituary

Charles "Chuck" E. Szentendrey, 58, of Avon Lake passed away on Saturday, July 8, 2017. He was born on March 14th, 1959. Chuck is survived by his two children, Nicholas Szentendrey and Angela Szentendrey; his mother, Georgia Szentendrey; sister, Theresa Coughlin; nephew Charles Coughlin and niece Kathleen Wolf; and great nieces, Kacie and Taylor Wolf. He was preceded in death by his father, Karoly Szentendrey, and brother, Joseph Szentendrey. Chuck's children were his greatest pride. He enjoyed making up games to play with his kids, niece, and nephew, playing permanent quarterback for front yard football, shooting behind-the-back shots in 8-ball, and jumping into the pool off the top of the slide. He was a lifelong fan of the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and classic rock, spent time in Hungary, Monaco, and riding a motorcycle along the California coast, and regaled everyone he met as a passionate storyteller. Chuck attended St. Joseph's Elementary School in Avon Lake and Lorain Catholic High School. He graduated from College of Wooster, where he studied geology. He spent a semester in Hamburg, Germany, learning German to go along with his fluent Hungarian and English. Chuck completed all but a thesis at University of Toledo and University of Southern California in environmental sciences. After graduate school, Chuck worked at Groundwater Technology and Superior Environmental, testing ground waters as a Field Tech. He excelled at gas chromatography and was made a Lead Field Tech. He earned an award from the State of Michigan for his continued dedication to environmental protection. After Superior, he started his own environmental company.
