WEEDSPORT | Charles D. Jayne, 57, of Weedsport, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday morning, Feb. 27, 2019.
He was born in Auburn, the son of Charles Jayne and Paulette Jayne and Linda Zak and had been an area life resident. “Chuck” or C.F.J. as he was affectionately known by his family or friends was a deputy at the Cayuga County Sherriff’s Department and had been employed for more than 15 years with the department, where he was also very active in their honor guard detail. Chuck assisted and helped the U.S. Marshall’s, was a resource officer for the Weedsport School District, and a constable for both the town of Brutus and Montezuma courts. He was also very active in C.H.A.D. and the Special Olympic Torch Runs that were held annually for law enforcement. Chuck enjoyed hunting, exercising, riding his Harley motorcycle, and especially loved racing with Motocross and his famous “934,” at least in his mind. Above all, Chuck cherished the times spent with his wife, sons, grandson, and other special relatives in his life. Chuck’s infectious smile, charming personality and quick wit will always be treasured by all who were fortunate enough to get to know this special man. He will be sadly missed.
He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Kathy Dix Jayne, of Weedsport; mother, Linda Zak; father, Charles Jayne; three sons, Brian (Jessica) Jayne, of Weedsport, Alan (Michelle) Jayne, of Baldwinsville, and Jeven (Ashlee) Jayne, of Auburn; sister, Donna Lee, of Elbridge; four brothers, Jeff (Sarah), of Idaho, Dr. Christopher (Natasha) Jayne, of Houston, David (Cheryl) Zak, of Buffalo, and Mike Zak, of Buffalo; beloved grandson, David Charles Jayne and soon to be expecting another grandchild in the Jayne family; as well as several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Charles was predeceased by his step-mother, Paulette Jayne, and a nephew, Mason Jayne.
