Charles Dunlevy

December 16, 1931 — May 12, 2024

formerly of Scottdale

Charles Winston (Wimpy) Dunlevy, age 92 of Batavia, NY (formerly Scottdale, PA and Vero Beach, FL) passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 12, 2024. Charles was born December 16, 1931, in Newell, West Virginia, youngest son of Edward and Frances (Wagner) Dunlevy. He was predeceased by his older brother Lee Dunlevy of Ligonier, PA, and his sister Frances (Sissie) Rehanek, of Myrtle Beach, SC. Wimpy graduated from Scottdale HS where he earned 11 letters in 4 sports.  He signed a professional baseball contract with the New York Giants at the age of 17. Instead of minor league baseball he opted to join the Navy stationed at CINCLANTFLT HQ in Norfolk, VA where during his 4 Navy years he continued to play baseball, football, and basketball, also honing his skills as a tournament-level pool player. Playing baseball, he was noticed by a pro scout who put him in touch with Ace Parker from Duke University.  He was offered a scholarship and played there from 1955–1959, where he was Captain in 1959. This initiated his love for Duke and all things Duke through the years. Moving back to Scottdale he was a lifelong member of Trinity UMC, a little league umpire, and did personnel screening for the Scottdale Police department among his civic activities. Chuck retired in 1989 from Robertshaw Controls in New Stanton after 25 years as Industrial Relations Manager, going immediately to the same position at Elliott Company in Jeanette, PA for 4 more years before his retirement in 1993. Retirement days were spent mainly on the golf course at Pleasant Valley Country Club, with winters in Florida until he and Pat moved to Vero Beach permanently in 2013. They loved their home and life in Vero and spent 15 years there before moving to Batavia, NY.

He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Patricia Moser Dunlevy; sons Ray (Debbie) of Batavia, NY; Phil (Jeanne) of Marlton, NJ; and Doug (Wendy) of Sarasota, FL, his sister Gladys Sorace of Scottdale, and numerous nieces and nephews.  He will be missed by his grandchildren Nicole (Noah) Kiehle, of Millersville, MD; Monica (Andy) Lang of Batavia, NY; Margo (Jeffrey) Sadowski of Hilton, NY; Alexander (Brittany) Dunlevy of Leesburg, Virginia; Olivia Dunlevy of Marlton, NJ; and Ava Dunlevy of Sarasota, FL. Chuck loved nothing better than to be in the middle of the energy from his 8 great-grandchildren; Nora and Micah Kiehle; Annalise, Holden, Winston, and Edith Lang; Graham and Rory Sadowski.  He had a zest for people and life, enjoyed a good conversation and loved to use his sharp memory to tell stories of his younger days.
