August 25, 1942 – March 22, 2023
Charles “Chuck” George Sithens, 80, passed away peacefully at his residence, on March 22, 2023.
Chuck was born the middle son of three children, to Charles and Grace Sithens, in Norristown, PA, on August 25, 1942. He grew up in Conshohocken, PA, and graduated from Conshohocken High School. He went on to complete one semester of college at the University of Chattanooga. He then enlisted in the Army Reserves. He worked as a flooring installer for many years and opened his own business, Limerick Floors. He was a dedicated businessman and continued to help run his company until the age of 77.
Chuck held many titles including husband, father, grandfather, brother, son, friend, athlete, business owner, and animal lover. He was married to his wife, Connie, for 55 years. They went on to have three children, Debra, Donna, and Darren, and raised their family in Perkiomenville, PA. Connie and Chuck recently moved to Richmond, VA, and were living with their son. Chuck was a dedicated family man and loved spending time with his children and grandchildren whenever he could. He enjoyed taking them to amusement and water parks, especially at the Wildwood Board Walk, where he would never miss the opportunity to get a roast beef sandwich from Snow White. He took every chance available to tell his kids how much he loved them and how proud he was of each of them.
Chuck was also an incredible athlete. He received a full scholarship to play football at the University of Chattanooga. Following his time in college, he had the opportunity to attend spring training camp with the St. Louis Cardinals. After his own baseball career, he was an umpire for several years. As an adult he also excelled at bowling and golf.
Chuck was fun loving and lighthearted. There is no one who has ever met him that could say he didn’t tell them a joke. It made him so happy to make others laugh and smile. He also loved his pets as much as he did people. His shepherds were as spoiled as they come.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Grace; his father, Charles; his brother, Ralph; and granddaughter, Kimberly Conrad. He is survived by his wife, Constance (Rosenberger); his daughter, Debra Conrad (Heath Brown); his daughter, Donna Norton (Eric); his son, Darren Sithens (Serena); grandsons, Hayden & Dylan Brown, and Dylan Sithens; his sister, Carol, widow of Shelva Smith; many cousins, nieces, and nephews; and his business partner, Bill Wacker.
His memorial service will be held at St. Andrew United Methodist Church (611 Swamp Creek Rd. Bechtelsville, PA 19505), on April 29, 2023, with a gathering from 10 am – 11 am, and the service starting at 11:00 am. A reception will be held at this location immediately following the burial.
