Charles J. Armbruster, 85, of 332 N. Shore Road, Cuba, NY

CUBA, NY - Charles J. Armbruster, 85, of 332 N. Shore Road, Cuba, passed away Wednesday (Jan. 25, 2012) at home after a courageous battle with cancer.

Born on April 6, 1926, in Buffalo, he was the younger son of Joseph L. and Pauline Geotz Armbruster. On Oct. 5, 1957, in St. Aloysius Roman Catholic Church in Cheektowaga, he married the former Joan A. Golibersuch, who survives.

Mr. Armbruster attended Bennett High School in Buffalo. He also served in the U.S. Army until he was honorably discharged.

Charles and his wife moved to Friendship in 1957 and purchased the Friendship Red and White, renaming it Armbruster's Red and White. He owned and operated that store for the next 21 years, retiring in 1978.

Community involvement was always important to Mr. Armbruster. He was a former member and past president of the Friendship Chamber of Commerce; was a member of the Friendship School Board for more than 10 years, also serving as president; helped organize and was a past president of the Friendship Little League; was secretary for the Friendship Planning Board; and at one time, was a member of the local Boy Scouts committee.

Along with other businessmen, he helped to revitalize and improve areas of the town that needed beautifying.

He was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing and sailing. But most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family. He also enjoyed winters in Florida with his wife.

Surviving in addition to his wife are two sons, Charles J. (Dawn) Armbruster of Fairport, Paul J. (Willa) Armbruster of Brooklyn; three grandchildren, Nichole (Chris) Dooling, Kelly Armbruster and Jack Armbruster; a great-granddaughter, Lucy Kay Dooling; as well as several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Jack Armbruster; and two sisters, Ruth Sharp and Lois Poggie.

At Mr. Armbruster's request, there will be no public visitation or funeral services. Private family services will be held at the convenience of the family.

Memorials, if desired, may be made to HomeCare & Hospice, 1225 W. State St., Olean, NY 14760. Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.rinkerfuneralhome.com

Arrangements are under the direction of the Mark F. Rinker Funeral Home & Memorial Service Inc., Cuba.
