Charles Edward O’Brien 

9/25/1946-7/22/2018 Charles, born Brooklyn NY, married Marie, began family in Providence RI while in Brown Univ. Settled in FL. His children, proudest accomplishments, Nicolle & Edward, Miami-Dade firefighters. Thanks to AA, 22 years sobriety. Memorial Mass, Mary Magdalene, Sunny Is Bch FL.

My dad is the biggest inspiration in my life. Acts of service were a part of his everyday life, whether he was helping family or complete strangers, it brought him great pleasure in helping people. He was my great protector. He brought God and his spiritual wisdom into my life everyday. I could learn something from dad every single day if I just stayed present and listened to him. He did what a father is supposed to do for his children. An honorable man who lived a Christian Life and who did nothing without prayer. My dad inspired everyone who met him. He was so strong, organized, diligent and patient. He had such a way of making anyone, who came into his presence, think deeply. He was the most caring, genuine, respectful man that I know. I will forever miss him.
