Obituary for Charles Carl "Charlie" Katinas Jr.

Charles C. Katinas was a unique individual with a great curiosity for diverse subjects: art, music, cultures, languages and cuisines. He was born in Brooklyn, New York on August 4, 1941. After a short illness, he passed away peacefully on Friday, July 27, 2018 at Whidbey Health Medical Center, Coupeville, WA. Charlie was a New Yorker who told you his honest opinion - not for the feint of heart. He was a wonderful friend, artist and cook. Charlie was a Renaissance man.

He was Lithuanian born and bred; steeped in the culture, food and language. Charlie was so well known for his home made foods of sausage, sauerkraut, New York style pickles, cordials, lasagnas that no one turned down a meal at Charlie’s. His love for food and art melded as Charlie took on a job cooking while he was studying art in Italy.

The arts were his life. He went to the School Of Visual Arts and Pratt in New York City and the Academy Of Art in Florence, Italy. He received scholarships and a grant from the Andy Warhol/Rockerfeller Foundation. He was an urban pioneer living and starting galleries in the Soho District of New York City as well as building lofts and gallery spaces.

He began skeet shooting in New York. Participating in various competitions in New York and Connecticut. He won many awards and patches. As much as he was involved in skeet shooting his main passion was in the visual arts.

He leaves his lovely wife Karen, his sister Kathy and cousin Vince whom he loved dearly. And, let’s not forget his 1984 Saab, too.
