"The Seton Hall Athletics family has suffered a great loss with the passing of our friend, Chuck Doehler," said Seton Hall University Director of Athletics Patrick Lyons. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Chuck was a loyal and dedicated Pirate who will be dearly missed."
After his career in baseball, Doehler founded Doehler and Associates, in the 1960's. He "made his mark" in the insurance industry for 30 years receiving many awards and honors. Always staying connected to Seton Hall; he served as president of the alumni association and later returned as an administrator becoming the first planned giving director at the University.
Throughout his life Doehler remained loyal to Seton Hall Athletics as a loyal contributor to the Pirate Blue Athletic Fund and University. His passion for fund raising extended to several charities, including the New Jersey Chapter of the American Red Cross, which is home to the "Chuck Doehler Education Center" in Fairfield, N.J.
"Throughout his life, Chuck built an incredible network of friends and today we feel a tremendous loss," said Bryan Felt, Associate Athletic Director for Development. "He was a passionate believer in Seton Hall Athletics and the work of Pirate Blue."
There will be a memorial service for Doehler on Friday, June 29, at the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception at Seton Hall University at 10 a.m.
