Charles “Chuck” Yatteau

Charles "Chuck" Yatteau - Fairport, NY - Rochester Cremation

Fairport, NY: Died peacefully at the age of 80 on June 3, 2020 with his sons by his side. Predeceased by his parents Thomas & Marjorie Yatteau; Brothers James, Robert, Fred and Rick (KIA Vietnam ’68); and his beloved dog Barney.

Survived by sons Steven (Sue) and Terry (Karen); grandchildren Dylan, Cheyenne, Anna & Sophie; brothers Don & Rusty (Pat); sister Alice Eichel; sister in-laws Barbara Yatteau, Katharine Hunn and Beatrice Dodd; ex-wife Karen Yatteau; MANY cousins, nieces & nephews.

Chuck was a 55 yr. devoted member & retiree of UA Local 13 Plumbers & Pipefitters Union. He was extremely proud of his Union, his family and their heritage. There were few tools he did not own and few people he did not befriend. He thoroughly enjoyed growing up in “Swillburg” and his time spent living in the Village of Fairport the last 25 years.

Some of his common “dadisms” were: “You can always take it off but you can’t always put it on,” “Ya gotta be shittin’ me,” “You make a better door than a window,” “To each, his own” and “Who do you think I am….Web Francis??? You think I own RG&E? Close the GD door!! We’re not heating the outside!!”

Despite his gruff demeanor, Chuck possessed a good-natured soul and thus he will be missed dearly by all who knew him.

Burial at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery will be limited to family once COVID-19 restriction is lifted. A celebration of life gathering will be held in the future. Time, date & location TBD.

Memorial contributions can be made in memory of Chuck to the Blessed Sacrament Supper Program, 259 Rutgers St. Rochester, NY 14607.

    You gave me the opportunity to be an Apprentice with Local 13. Although I left going into my second year to become a nurse, I will never forgot how kind you were & the opportunity that was given to me. I still use many skills that I learned back then and I still have my card that you signed. You were a great man & may God rest your soul
