Charles F. Fitzsimmons Jr. ’51

Charles F. Fitzsimmons Jr. ’51 died in Okatie, South Carolina, on March 20. A devoted family man, he is survived by his wife, Carole, five children, and nine grandchildren. At Dartmouth Chuck was a psychology major and a member of Sigma Nu. After graduation he joined the U.S. Marine Corps and served as a corporal in Korea. Chuck spent 40 years in the primary metal and metal manufacturing industries, much of the time in or near Mahwah, New Jersey, where he and Carole raised their family. His professional career culminated in service as the president of Bridon American Corp., a manufacturer of high-strength steel wire rope. He had wide-ranging interests, hobbies, and avocations that included woodworking carpentry, gardening, travel, running, biking, and staying fit. Working out on his rowing machine was for years a regular part of his day. His greatest joy was vacationing with family and friends on the ocean at Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Chuck took up golf in his late 60s and was proud of a hole-in-one when he was 72 as well as a member-guest championship with his son-in-law at age 80.
