Charles Kyriakos Pafites of Daytona Beach, FL passed away on Monday, February 5th 2024 at the age of 88 after a short illness.

Charles immigrated to the United States from Karavas, Cyprus. After retiring from his career as the manager of the meat department at The Grand Union Company he dedicated his life to his family, friends and his community.
