Obituary

VERO BEACH, FL. Charles O. Daucher, 93, passed away on Saturday August 12, 2017 after a brief hospitalization at the Indian River Medical Center. He was born in Catskill, NY on March 13, 1924, to the late Otto and Elizabeth (Teich) Daucher and grew up in Leeds, New York. After graduation from Catskill High School, he enlisted in the United States Army. He received an honorable discharge after serving in WWII as a Combat Engineer in Europe under General Patton’s 3rd Army. Upon returning home to Leeds, he pursued a career with the New York State Police, retiring as a Senior Investigator after 33 years of service. Thereafter he was elected and served two terms as Greene County Sheriff for a total of 10 years.

One of Charlie’s favorite stories was about his Army combat unit disembarking in New York City after the war ended, only to be shipped over to the West Coast to be discharged. He then had to travel in over-crowded trains back to New York City where he purchased his first car to complete his trip home.

Survivors include his wife of 63 years, the former Dolores Stapleton; son, Robert and his wife Maureen Daucher of Westtown, NY; daughter, Kathryn and her husband David Lutz of Vero Beach, FL and Catskill, NY; five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He was pre-deceased by his oldest son, Eric Charles Daucher.

Funeral Services will be held 10 am Saturday August 19th, at the Millspaugh-Camerato Funeral Home, 139 Jefferson Heights, Catskill, New York. Burial will follow in the Town of Catskill Cemetery. Friends may visit 4-7 pm on Friday August 18th at the Funeral Home. Condolences may be shared at MillspaughCamerato.com
