Charles George Rist, Jr., 80, of 905 Lanyard Lane, passed away on June 22, 2022 after a lengthy illness. A native of Baltimore, MD, he moved to FH resident upon his retirement in June 1999. 

Charles earned an Industrial Engineering degree from Johns Hopkins University, and also served in the US Army Reserve. He made a career with AT&T in Baltimore and AT&T Headquarters in Morristown, NJ, working in Technology, Communications, Human Resources and International Divisions. Later he worked with Lucent Technologies, a Bell Labs Division, before retiring.

Charlie was a member of various Fairfield Harbour clubs including Thursday Men’s Bridge, Harbour Night Club, Karaoke Club and the FH Yacht Club. He was also a member of the Elks Lodge, Hopalong in NJ and New Bern, the NB Amateur Radio Club, NB Computer Users Group, and Elks Thursday Bridge. He and his companion, Jerri Jordan, attended many FH events during their years together.

He was active and enjoyed fishing, boating and dancing, and participated in biking and running charity events in NJ, NYC, Ocean City, MD and New Bern. His garage was his castle with a workshop and car lift. As a skilled mechanic, he was ‘The Mower Doc’, a small engine repair business he ran for two years prior to his illness. His pride and joy was his ’67 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme convertible, his first new car.
