Chuck Constantine Caroulis
Chuck passed away peacefully at Serenity House in Santa Barbara, CA on July 7, 2020 of natural causes at 57. Born on December 6, 1962 to Elizabeth (dec) and Charles Caroulis in Upper Darby, PA. He had 5 siblings, George Caroulis (dec), Theodora Knight, Elizabeth French, Kathleen Caroulis (dec), and Katherine Mariotti.
Words cannot express the sadness shared by our family in the loss of our son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. Chuck, or as he later, playfully referred to himself as, Constantine, was taken from us too soon. He was an accomplished athlete in cycling, swimming, an ironman and marathoner, and proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force.
A common sentiment shared among family and friends stated the adventures and moments with Chuck have been some of the best times of their lives.
While Chuck lived an adventurous life, he also had a practical side where he worked hard, invested wisely and saved. He left a legacy to his family and his business name, C&L Heating & Air, continues to this day, run by his niece and her husband.
We’ve received an outpouring of love from his family, friends and clients. He was part of the fabric of Santa Barbara for many years. To quote one of his clients, “We could always rely on him, even during fires, mudslides and Covid-19. Everybody was crazy about him”. It’s a comfort to know Chuck was loved and held in high esteem by so many people in all walks of life.
Due to Covid-19, an intimate blessing ceremony was held shortly after his passing with his family members and close friends. We are forever grateful to Serenity House for their excellent care and blessings. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to Serenity House via VNA Health.
Love to all,
The Caroulis Family
