Charles was born in Utica on April 2, 1967, a son of the late Thomas L., Sr. & Dorothea (LaBella) Adrean. Charles was raised in Utica graduating from St. Agnes Grammar School and later from T.R. Proctor High School. He began his career in funeral service at Eannace Funeral Home, Inc. in Utica, in 1981 at the age of fourteen. Upon his completion of high school he graduated from Herkimer County Community College with an Associates Degree in Applied Science, later receiving a diploma from Simmons Institute of Mortuary Science in Syracuse, New York.
Having continually worked in funeral service in Utica throughout his education, he began an apprenticeship with Eannace Funeral Home in Utica and Campbell-Dean Funeral Home in Oneida, New York. Charles left Eannace Funeral Home in 2000 after over nineteen years of dedicated service. In October of 2000, he accepted a position with Service Corporation International, the largest death care provider in the world, as a Family Service Counselor, and a Certified Preplanning Consultant at three of their Syracuse operations, Pirro and Sons Funeral Home, Bagozzi Twins Funeral Home and Farone and Son Funeral Home. Having never left the area he concurrently worked for various local funeral homes including, Matt Funeral Service, and Smith Funeral Home in Sauquoit.
Charles has served thousands of families at their time of need. He has a passion for the Utica area and funeral service which led him to establish Adrean Funeral Service, Inc. in 2005. Since then he and his staff have been honored to serve many families. Adrean Funeral Service, Inc. is a full service funeral home second to none, catering to every family with compassion, dignity, pride and respect, leaving no detail to chance, with a staff of local
