Charles (Charlie) R. O'Loughlin, age 77, of Maynard, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 9, 2020 due to complications from a fall at his home. He is survived by his loving partner Diane V. Wasiuk of Maynard.
Born in Allston, MA on June 1, 1942, he was the son of the late John Joseph and Phyllis Patricia (Turner) O'Loughlin. Charlie was raised and educated in Allston and Brighton, graduating from Brighton High School, Class of 1960.
Charlie's favorite pass time was golfing and at the time of his passing he worked as a ranger for the Maynard Golf Course where he loved to teach people to golf while telling them all about how he had gotten a hole in one, twice, on the same hole years apart.
He was a proud member of the Lincoln MA police dept as an auxiliary police officer for many years until his retirement.
He enjoyed spending time in York Beach, ME with friends and family. He was an amazing artist, an avid card player, especially gin rummy, and he loved all the New England sports teams. He also used to love watching golf and bowling just to torture his children when they were young.
Charlie is survived by his children, Charles O'Loughlin and wife Lisa of Worcester, MA; Thomas O'Loughlin and wife Angela of Douglas, MA; Cally O'Loughlin of Milford, MA; Michael Colt of Groton, MA; Leslie Colt of Groton, MA; his siblings, Thomas O'Loughlin of Florida; Stephen O'Loughlin and wife Kathy of Tewksbury, MA; Linda Shaughnessy and husband David of York, ME; his grandchildren, Samantha, Mackenzie, Terri and Katrina. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Charlie was predeceased by his brother John O'Loughlin and sister Patsy Gardner.
The family will have a celebration of life in the fall when we can all safely get together again.
