Charles H. Angell, Jr passed away on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at the age of 99 years, 10 1/2 months. He had lived in the same house in Glencoe, IL for 62 years.
Charles was the loving husband of Lucinda M Angell, nee Marsh, deceased, whom he married on September 14, 1940. He was the father of Charles H. Angell III, deceased, (Gail), Susan F. Angell, Lucinda J. Angell (Harold C. Ogg), and Jeffrey C. Angell (Karen); grandfather of five; great-grandfather of nine. He was born in Springfield, MA, son of Charles H and Jessie F. Angell.
Charles was a graduate of Princeton University, class of 1937, with a BS in Chemical Engineering. His ROTC Unit was the last Horse Drawn Field Artillery Unit at Princeton. He was a veteran of World War II, stationed in New Guinea and the Philippines. After the war, Charles continued in the Reserves, finishing up with another year of Active Duty at Fort Lee VA, as a member of the 322 Logistical Command.
Charles worked first for Dow Chemical in New England. When Charles and Lucinda moved to Glencoe in 1952, he began working for Corite Reynolds, where he later became president. After leaving Corite, he started working as a consultant in Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics. He soon grew to love his consulting work, since it literally took him all over the world–all 7 continents, all 50 states, all countries in Europe, and others too many to mention. As part of his consulting work, Charles spoke at scientific conferences, again all over the world. In their leisure time, he and Lucinda continued their love of traveling, and took their children on some fabulous vacations
