Obituary for Charles Stephen Dulcey

Charles Stephen Dulcey, 88, of Roaring Brook Twp., died Monday, May 21, at St. Mary's Villa Nursing Home in Elmhurst Twp. He was the beloved husband of the late Elizabeth (Buglio) Dulcey, to whom he was married for 63 years.

Born in Hazleton, he was the son of the late Stephen and Mary (Fedorko) Dulcey. Charles graduated from St. Gabriel's High School in 1947 and went on to serve as an electronics technician in the United States Navy Atlantic Submarine Command until 1951.

Charles began his professional career in 1952 at Maxxon Electronics in Old Forge as a quality assurance supervisor, eventually rising to general manager before being transferred to their Great River, N.Y., facility as director of manufacturing. He then served as general manager of American Technical Machinery, first in Mount Vernon, N.Y., and later in Blakely. Near the end of his career he served first as president of Dawn Special Systems in Blakely and later in the same role at Quality Manufacturing Solutions in Jermyn, retiring in 1995.

A parishioner of St. Eulalia's Parish, Charles served on the building fund committee, as a lector, Eucharistic minister, RCIA coordinator and as a member of the liturgy committee and choir. In the wider Catholic community he was a 30-year member of Our Lady of Fatima Charismatic Prayer Group, belonged to the Lay Missionaries of Charity and the Padre Pio prayer group. He also volunteered for many years in the prison ministry at Lackawanna County Prison in Scranton.

In Charles' professional and spiritual life he could appear quite serious and solemn. But with his family, he was always the one to go for the laugh. His large extended family will dearly miss Charles, along with his sense of humor and gifts for storytelling and song.

Charles is survived by his children, Charles S. Dulcey Jr., of Washington, D.C.; Mark J. Dulcey, of Massachusetts; and Mary Beth Morabito and her husband, Jim, of Michigan; his sisters-in-law, Mary Dulcey, of Hazleton; Margaret Generose, of Hazle Twp.; and Lara Buglio, of New Jersey; and brother-in-law, Michael Buglio, of Virginia; his granddaughters, Andrea and Carla Morabito; and his grandson, Joseph Morabito and wife, Isabelle; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Elizabeth Buglio Dulcey; his sisters, Mary Pavlick, Sister Mary Alphius Dulcey, Josephine Crilley, Margaret Dintaman, Anna Dulcey and Joan Adomshick; and his brother, John Dulcey; and son, Daniel M. Dulcey.

Charles' family would like to express its gratitude to the staff at St. Mary's Villa for its loving care and support and to the visiting music therapist and various entertainers for the gifts they shared that brought him so much joy.
