Obituary of Charles J. Lenoy

Charles J. Lenoy, 81, of Pompton Lakes, NJ passed away on Sunday March 31, 2019 surrounded by his loving family.

Charlie was born on October 6, 1937 in Paterson, NJ. He was the son of the late Charles and Pearl Lenoy.He married the love of his life, Pat Korger, on September 13, 1958. Charlie graduated from Paterson Technical and Vocational High School, then proudly joined the Marine Corps 2ndDivision, 8th Engineers Battalion. After an Honorable Discharge from the Marines, Charlie worked as a machinist for Kearfott, then as a machinist at Liberty, a plant manager at SANO Design and Machine Company, and as a sales representative for Hermes Machine Tool Company.

Charlie thoroughly enjoyed bowling and was part of the CBS Men’s League for many years. He was a true gym rat. You could always find him working out while taking pleasure in his morning coffee from Dunkin Donuts-- medium decaf, with milk, and three Splenda. He was active in the Pompton Lakes Little League and Softball programs, where he would umpire and maintain the fields to perfection. He had a great interest in fishing and simply watching other fisherman try to catch something. He would vacation yearly in Long Beach Island, NJ with his family and was always entertained watching the boats go by the lighthouse.

Charlie’s greatest achievements were that of his family and his military service. He is loved deeply by all of us and was truly a cornerstone to our clan. He was our quintessential cranky and stubborn old man; we loved him for it.

Charlie is survived by his wife Pat Lenoy; his daughter Charlene Lenoy-Umhoefer and her husband Don Umhoefer Jr.; his daughter Kathy Hefferle and her husband Kevin Hefferle; his three granddaughters Amy Umhoefer, Colleen Hefferle, and Shannon Hefferle to whom he was a proud Pepop; his youngest sister Linda Malinchak; and his energetic and sprightly best friend Barkley the cocker spaniel.

His siblings Pat Kievit and James Lenoy predecease him.

Visiting hours are from 4 to 7PM on Tuesday April 2, 2019 at the M. John Scanlan Funeral Home, Pompton Plains. Followed immediately by a Military Service.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Charlie’s memory, to the Gary Sinise Foundation. It is a foundation that serves our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need.
