Deepest condolences to entire Fernicola family. Including Chuck's daughters. Lori and Lisa, and his partner in life, Joyce. Chuck was truly dedicated to the youth of the Mountainside Little League, Chuck is Mr. Little League of Mountainside for over 40 years of teaching hundreds of his kids the fundamentals of baseball. As a former teammate, Chuck was a very competitive player and manager, aka Billy Martin. I've known Chuck for over 50 years, and without a doubt, Chuck will be missed by so many who had the privilege of knowing Chuck. RIP MY FRIEND, and Watch How You Go. Your friend, Steve Semancik

Dear Seth and family,

Sincere remorse upon the death of your dad. Although I never met him, we both had the fortune of living in Westfield for many years.

As you know, I buried my wife this past week. You are fortunate to have a wonderful wife and children around you. Although I have family, they are 400 miles away.. I share in your grief. It's devestating.

I'm so very sorry for your lose. A day doesn't go by that I recall all the good times we had stationed in Puerto Rico. We were all so young and going to college at night making big plans for our futures. Please know that even though we haven't seen each other in a long time I will always remember what you did to help my daughter during the time she was sick and we almost lost her, both you and Jaime would make sure that her IV meds were prepared correctly and never leave work until you mixed enough solution to hold her over through the night. I Love you guys, God Speed Luis see you at our next port of call my friend.

John was quiet and unassuming until he got on the football field. He became a force to be reckoned with feared by all offensive linemen. My fondest memory of John is when I asked him to build a bar for our new frat house on Staten Island. He teamed up with Mike Pontone and they worked long and tireless hours to complete it before school started. It was a thing of beauty. John always had your back, he will be missed by all who knew him. May he rest in peace. John will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

My brother-in-law Chuck was the best and right there for me in my times of need. Our parents Tom and Peg loved him because he was always kind and generous to his children, my sister and us. He had a Heart of Gold and would give you the last dime he had. God and his family will remember the gentle in him

My Husband was a wonderful Father and Friend to Many. He always knew how to make "Lemons into Lemonade". He loved and spent many hours with his children, as a hands on father when they were babies. He coached them as middle schoolers and high schooller's with all Sports! Many a Yankee Game and Devil's Game we attended as a Family. And Who Could Forget the ICE CREAM SOCIALS Chuck sponsored for THe Music Program for New Providence HS. We travelled as a family to England and Germany. But We will always Remember his Love of the "Jersey Shore" especially 2329 Asbury Avenue , Ocean City, NJ. Chuck was a "special person" who delighted in his family and had a Wonderful sense of humor even in the darkest hour! He left us Peacefully on Tuesday morning sitting in his Easy Chair with a "Beck's Beer" in hand and watching his favorite History Channel.... He Will Be Missed By Many...........
