Charles H. Saile, 78, of Cohoes, passed away peacefully at home January 14, 2021.
He was born in Baltimore, MD, the son of William and Elizabeth (Hause) Saile. He graduated from Brighton High School in Rochester, NY and attended Syracuse University, where he graduated with a BS with a major in TV and Radio and a minor in Religion. He was a Capital District resident for many years, and held various jobs, including Executive Director for The Capital Area Religious Broadcasting Commission for the Councils of Churches, Director of the Rensselaer Newman Chapel and Cultural Center at RPI, and Davis Vision, from which he retired.
In his early years, he was very active in Civil Rights Movements, and worked in the medical tent at Woodstock as a counselor for Refer, in which he took great pride for being instrumental in making it come to life.
He took great pride in his family, and was always willing to share his knowledge and teach what he knew. He was an avid reader, and had a thirst for knowledge and learning, especially about computers, which led to his long term career at Davis Vision as their IT administrator. He also loved music, and had very eclectic musical choices.
He used to love to boat and water ski in his younger days, as well as go camping. He loved nothing more than sitting by the water and reading, and going on cruises with his wife.
He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Delia, daughters Lori and Lisa Saile of Syracuse, NY, Paula Dowling (Sean) of Cohoes, son Walter Sevrie of Albany, and 4 grandchildren, Sean Knight (Sara) of Troy, Alan Dowling, Cohoes, Alessandra Dowling (Zach) of Troy, and Nathaniel Dowling, Cohoes. He was also expecting a great grandson, Lincoln, due in March.
At this time there are no services planned.
A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.
