Obituary of Charles Tiscornia

CHARLES A. TISCORNIA 64, of Mendham, co-owner of the Mendham Health & Racquet Club.

Charles Andrew Tiscornia recently passed away suddenly at his home in Mendham. He, along with his brother John, was the co-owner of the Mendham Health & Racquet Club. Charles was a quiet but friendly person, and to those who knew him he had a hidden heart of gold. Charles was born in Jersey City, NJ, and lived his early years in Hoboken. The family moved several times within NJ, residing in White Township, Atlantic Highlands, and North Long Branch before finally settling in Mendham in 1960. Charles attended the Hilltop School, and was in the first graduating class at Mendham High School.

After high school Charles was one of the first employees at the former Foodtown supermarket here in the Mendham shopping center, and held various other Maintenance Engineering jobs throughout his life at several private schools, a state run Residential home, and finally the Mendham Health & Racquet Club, of which he became co-owner upon the death of his older brother Joseph. Until his recent death, Charles’s special passion was to make sure the club pool was ready to go each year for the many children that enjoyed the pool over the years.

Charles loved to camp and went on many hiking trips in the New England back country with various friends. He loved fishing and owned several boats, and especially liked to make trips up to Lake Ontario to try his luck with the salmon and lake trout. He was an ardent Yankee and Giants fan and loved to watch the games sitting in his favorite recliner with a beer or two.

Charles is survived by his brother John of Mendham. He was predeceased by his parents Joseph and Helene, and his brother Joseph.
