We lost a true hero on November 4, 2015. Charles "Chuck" Karen spent most of his life serving the community. He was an NYPD officer, a volunteer with the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department and a 9/11 first responder. But more important then all of these he was a loving husband and father. To Charles and Dominic, Chuck was more then a father, he was a hero and a best friend. Charles and Dominic lost their hero due to injuries sustained while operating at ground zero in the days following the attacks on the World Trade Center. Please help support these children to insure their future is taken care of and to allow the legacy of Chuck Karen to live on forver in his children.

I had the privilege of working with Chuck at Macy's in the late 90s to early 2000s what a great guy always laughing and telling cool stories. I just learned of his passing tonight at work. So sorry for the belated condolences to the Karen family. Chuck was a cool dude with a warm heart I will miss him.

So tragic. Just heard about this. I remember Chuck from the 73. Did late tours. Quiet and very respectful when he approached the desk. A true gentleman . My belated condolences to his family.. RIP.
