Beloved husband of Catharine (Smith) Hollerman for 68 years.

Charles graduated from Cornell Medical School class of ‘55; Allegheny College, class of ’51; and Turtle Creek High School, class of ‘47. Charles served in the Navy for two years as a Flight Surgeon on active duty and seven more in the Naval Reserve attaining the rank of Commander. Charles then completed his residency in pediatric nephrology, served as Professor of Pediatrics at Georgetown Medical School and the University of South Dakota Medical School where he became Dean, before moving to hospital administration where he was Director of Medicine at major hospitals in Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Cincinnati. Throughout he maintained a love of teaching and learning.  A voracious reader, he always had a book or two on hand to read or recommend. He also enjoyed hiking in the mountains of Virginia and gardening outside of his residence.  Chuck was always up for a game of bridge with friends.  Above all else, he loved to spend time with his family both at home and in attendance at athletic and artistic events involving his children and grandchildren.

No visitation or service is planned.

The family suggests that friends might honor Chuck’s memory by planting a tree, sharing a good book, or enjoying a bowl of ice cream.
