Charles L. Sage, 86, of Batavia, passed away peacefully on Friday (Nov. 11, 2022) at the New York State Veterans Home in Batavia.
He was born Jan. 23, 1936, in Batavia, a son of the late William and Elsie Tiede Sage.
Mr. Sage served his country with the U.S. Army from 1958-1960. He was formerly employed by Doehler Jarvis in Batavia prior to his retirement. Charles was a member of the Cornerstone Church in East Pembroke. He enjoyed old classic cars, attending car shows, feeding animals around his home and gardening.
