WATERBURY - Charles "Chuck" Zibell, age 62 of Waterbury passed away peacefully surrounded by the love and comfort of his family at the Vitas Innovative Care Unit of St. Mary's Hospital on Friday, February 25, 2022 after an extended illness.

Chuck was born on January 15, 1960 the son of the late Joseph and Julia (Bannon) Zibell. He was a graduate of Kaynor Technical High School and was a longtime employee of the State of CT, Dept of Transportation. Chuck was proud of his Irish and German heritage, and spoke fondly of his trip to Ireland with his brother. He was a longtime member of the Knight of Columbus, Ancient Order of Hibernians and a proud friend of Bill W for 15 years, an accomplishment he was very proud of. He willingly shared the strengths he learned there with many friends and strangers alike. He was a diehard NY Yankees fan and also followed the NY Jets. Chuck had a wonderful sense of humor and always had a smile for everyone. He would be the first to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. As a resident of the Village at East Farms , Chuck was involved in nearly every activity. He was a devout Catholic. Chuck will be greatly missed by all who were blessed to know and love him.
