Charles Daniel Redstone, 98, a storyteller, recently of Paramus, previously of Nutley, Toms River, and Hackensack, NJ, was born on December 11, 1921 in Hell’s Kitchen NYC. He left NYC for the CCC Camps in Utah, to make some money for his family when he was 16. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, he was inspired to enlist in the US Coast Guard. While stationed in Portsmouth, NH, he met the blue-eyed love of his life Lillian Chapman, at a bus stop. They were married almost immediately because he knew she was the one, and he didn’t want her to get away! Soon after, they moved back down to NY where Charlie worked as a pipe fitter on some of the most historic buildings in the city, including the Twin Towers. He was a proud dues paying member of Steamfitters Local 638 for 72 years, and he loved to tell stories about his years in ‘The Steam’.

Charlie and Lillian had been married for 63 years, when she passed away in 2008, after a battle with Alzheimer’s that Charlie fought valiantly with her, for several years. He told wonderful stories about Lil and he was looking forward to being reunited with her.

Together, in Hackensack, they raised their twelve children, Patricia Graziano, Charles, Kathleen, Lee, Margaret Deitsch, Teresa Panzironi, Barbara Jean Lipari, Michael (deceased 1982), Joseph, Tammy, Daniel, and John, and his loving sons and daughters in law.

Charlie is also survived by 23 grandchildren, and 31 great-grandchildren as well as his siblings, Father James Redstone of Brick, NJ and Nancy O’Connor of Palisades Park, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sisters Dorothy Hunt and Beatrice Kovacs and his brother George.

In lieu of flowers or mass cards, and in honor of his memory, the family is requesting that you hug your loved ones tightly, and listen closely to all of their stories. If you are so inclined, you can make a donation in Charlie’s name to the Nutley Volunteer Emergency and Rescue Squad, 119 Chestnut Street, Nutley, NJ 07110 or online at,
