Waltham – Mr. Charles E. "Chuck" Reardon, of Waltham, died Friday, January 10, 2020 in Newton-Wellesley Alzheimer's Center following a period of declining health. He was 75.

Chuck was born in Brighton on August 18, 1944, a son of the late Charles and Mildred (Ryan) Reardon. As a child he moved with his family to Waltham where he graduated from Waltham High in 1962.

He worked for years as a professional livery driver. He owned and operated his own livery service for a time before becoming a full-time driver with Harrison Transportation in Waltham where he quickly became a friend and familiar face among co-workers and his customers.

He was a devoted communicant of Saint Jude Parish where he quietly served for years as a Eucharistic minister and a sacristan for the 10:30 Sunday Mass. He also served in the Massachusetts Army National Guard.

In addition to his parents, Chuck is also reunited in heaven with his brother, the late William Reardon.

He leaves his beloved wife, Marianne T. (Mahoney) Reardon, his sisters Helen Vannasse of Kansas and Barbara Faro of Florida and many nieces, nephews and their families.

Family and friends will honor and remember Chuck's life by gathering for calling hours in The Joyce Funeral Home, 245 Main Street (Rte. 20), Waltham on Tuesday, January 14th from 4 to 8 p.m. and again at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning before leaving in procession to Saint Jude Church, 147 Main Street, Waltham where his Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. Burial will be private.

Memorial donations may be made to Saint Jude Parish, 147 Main Street, Waltham MA 02453.
