One of our valued and beloved members, Charles ("Chuck”) G. Enering, 64, of Vernon, passed away in late February, 2020 at the Morristown Medical Center after a long battle with stomach cancer. Chuck was a long volunteer of the West Milford community and one of the founders of the West Milford Presbyterian Church Food Pantry and was heavily involved with the Boy Scouts.
Chuck was born in the Bronx, New York and grew up in River Vale. He graduated from Bergen County Technical High School in 1974.
Chuck married Kathryn (“Kathi”) E. Moser in 1982, and they raised two sons in West Milford. After living there for over 30 years, he and Kathi moved to Vernon in late 2019.
Chuck worked in the advertising and printing industry his entire career. He specialized in large-scale print campaigns for department and grocery chains throughout the 1980s and 1990s. He subsequently founded Highlands Printing in West Milford and dedicated his talents to helping local churches, community organizations, and small businesses meet their printing needs.
Chuck contributed his boundless energy, passion, and organizational skills to a wide variety of local volunteer and charity groups.
At various times, he was an elder, deacon, youth director, Vacation Bible School Coordinator, and Food Pantry Coordinator at the West Milford Presbyterian Church.
As a member of the Lions Club, he ran an annual coat drive, food drive, and community-wide Health Fair.
In addition to organizing a Christmas toy drive for local children, he held several leadership roles with Troop 144 and Troop 44 of the Boy Scouts of America.
Chuck also organized book collections for Rural Reading Centers Africa, a non-profit dedicated to combating illiteracy in rural Kenya.
Chuck will be dearly missed by our Club members along with the greater West Milford community.
