Charles A. McNabb, age 73 of Fernandina Beach, Florida, passed away Sunday May 28, 2017 at his home after a long illness. He was the husband of Ruth Wiley McNabb.
Born on April 7, 1944 in Philadelphia, he was the son of the late Francis J. McNabb and Mary Hiemenz McNabb.
Charles attended Bishop Shanahan and graduated from Conestoga High School. After marrying he settled in Downingtown and was the owner-operator of McNabb’s Service Center in Eagle. Upon retiring, he and his wife moved to Amelia Island Florida for the winters and spent their summers on the Chesapeake Bay in Earleville, Maryland.
Charles was a past member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Downingtown and attended St. Michael’s in Fernandina Beach.
He enjoyed all things related to the outdoors. Being on the water was the most enjoyable; boating, fishing, crabbing and just relaxing. He always looked forward to our annual family crab feast at the Bay.
