DPW Official to be Remembered With Memorial

Charles Dziedzic died in a motorcycle crash in April.

The Chatham Borough Department of Public Works will host a memorial dedication for Charles Dziedzic, the deputy DPW director who was killed in April.

The memorial dedication will take place at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 at DPW headquarters.

Dziedzic, 59, of Morris Plains, died on Monday, April 23 while returning home from a cross-country motorcycle trip.

At the funeral service in April, Dziedzic's brother-in-law, David Price, eulogized Dziedzic as "a man you could trust, a man you could rely on, a man of pride ... [and] one of the most unselfish people you've ever met."

Rev. J. Antonio Gaviria's homily described the love that filled Dziedzic's life: his marriage of over 37 years with his wife Linda; his two daughteres, Shelley and Amy; and his grandson, Domenick Charles Marchetti; and his brother, Tony Dziedzic. 

"He never said 'no' to anyone who needed his help," Gaviria said. "He used his skills in service of others, a sort of rent-a-husband. He was generous with his time and energy, and he, in return, was well loved."
