McKinnon, Charles J., Sr., of Marshfield, passed away on February 22, 2021 at the age of 74. Son of the late John B. and Regina M. (Mahoney) McKinnon; loving father of Julie DeGrenier (husband William) of Braintree, Leslie Iaria (husband David) of South Carolina, and Charles J. McKinnon, Jr., of Marshfield; cherished grandfather of Gregory and Caroline Ford and Benjamin, Sarah, Grace, Erica, and Drew Iaria; dear brother of John McKinnon (wife Mary) of Duxbury, Christopher McKinnon (wife Patricia) of California, Eugene McKinnon of New Hampshire, and Mark McKinnon of Arlington.
Charlie was raised in Belmont. He attended Northeastern University at night while he worked for the MASS STATE POLICE and received his masters from WNEC. He was a member of the MSP dive team. He retired from the State Police force, a Major, after 32 years of service.
Charlie raised his family in Pembroke and later settled in Brant Rock. He loved the time he spent at his house on the ocean. He enjoyed his boat, biking the canal, kayaking, skiing, baking, afternoons on his porch, and happy hours at the yacht club. He had many friends, and his greatest joy was his 7 grandkids. Charlie was a quiet, reserved guy but touched the lives of all that he met. He will be sorely missed.
