Waltham – Mr. Charles M. Lemont, Jr., of Waltham, died Saturday December 26, 2020 at Oak Knoll Nursing Home in Framingham. He was 89.

The son of the late Charles M., Sr. and Irene (Burns) Lemont, he was born in Lowell on February 25, 1931. He was a lifelong resident of Waltham, having moved to the city as a child, and was a graduate of Saint Charles High School.

After that he joined the United States Navy where he proudly served for four years during the Korean War, mostly aboard the USS Warington US (DD-843), a Gearing-class destroyer.

Until his retirement Charles worked for years as an engineer for the Raytheon Company's Missile Systems Division. He also belonged to Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Lodge No. 953 in Waltham.

Time spent with his family offered the greatest delight and his children will long remember the special family dinners he made every Sunday. He was a master chef who could create a variety of delicious meals. Holidays were especially joyous occasions.

He leaves his children Robert C. Lemont of Dedham, Kathleen M. Lemont of Waltham, Julie A. Lemont of Concord, Erin I. Donato of Newton, Joseph C. Lemont of Framingham and Christopher C. Lemont and Scott C. Lemont both of Nantucket; his grandchildren, Jeb Lemont, Brian Navin, Peter and Daniel Donato; his great-grandchildren, Devin and Savannah Lemont and many nieces, nephews and their families.

Charles was also the brother of the late Richard and John Lemont.

Funeral services are private.


Tuesday, December 22, 2020 – a note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:

During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.

Telephone your friend to offer words of love, support and a verbal hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.

These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.

When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit to the funeral home should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.

It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.

Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in many places of worship will also be private. Most services, at the family's request, will also be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.

Cemetery services are included in the current outdoor gathering limit of twenty-five people.

During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance.

Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
