Charles Frederick Archer



Charles Frederick Archer (Charlie), beloved father, father-in-law, and grandfather passed away peacefully on April 20, 2022, after spending Easter with his family. Charlie was born on August 3, 1936 in Danbury to the late Marion and Frederick Archer.

Charlie grew up on Clapboard Ridge Road and graduated from Henry Abbott Technical High School.  He later became a licensed electrician.  As an adult he moved to a home he almost totally rebuilt on Rockwood Lane where he always gave everyone a friendly wave (“two shakes and a stop”).  He worked for many years at A.J. Masi and later at Schlumberger Doll Research.  His co-workers often became, and remained, his friends.  He married his beloved wife, Carol Fallon Archer in 1978

Along with his brother Larry, Charlie was an avid fan of the U-Conn Women’s Basketball Team and NASCAR.  He especially enjoyed time with Carol and their friends and families and visits with his grandchildren (who loved those tractor rides, the pool he kept in pristine condition, and getting ice cream from the Fudgy Wudgy man at the beach). 

He enjoyed travels to Greece, Ireland, Anguilla and the Dominican Republic (where he developed a liking for strawberry daiquiris), vacations at the beach, and time spent in the beautiful yard at Rockwood Lane. 

His expressions. “And a pleasant good morning;” “I didn’t lose my head over it;” and (after a sneeze) “It doesn’t look good for tomorrow” will live on.  

Charlie was predeceased by his wife of 42 years, Carol, and his brother and lifelong friend, Larry Archer.  His brother Benjamin also predeceased him at an early age. He leaves to treasure his memory children: Lisa Partelow Reid, Paul (Susan) Partelow, Christine (Dennis) Archer Ring; Christopher (Michelle) Partelow; and grandchildren: Elizabeth Reid, Ryan (Emily) Partelow, Jenna Archer, Emily Reid and Lindsey Partelow. He also leaves his son Ed (Stephannie) Archer and their children Jillian and Devin. Charlie will also be missed by dear friends George and Barbara Reiss, The Masi families, Sailor Cascio. and Michelle's children, Matthew Capriglione and Joseph (Kasia) Capriglione and their son Leonardo.  

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, April 29, 2022 at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Church, 8 Robinson Avenue, Danbury. Burial to follow at King Street Cemetery (Cemetery of the First Baptist Church) in Danbury CT.
