Charles J. Hatfield II died peacefully at home in East Blue Hill on Monday, July 8, in the 60th year of marriage to his loving wife, Nancy. A graduate of St. Paul’s School and Princeton University, Charlie was an accomplished athlete as a quarterback in football and pitcher in baseball at St. Paul’s, a college ice hockey goalie and rugby player, a lifelong tennis and sailing enthusiast and renowned for his unparalleled prowess in lighthearted mischief.

At Princeton University he was president of Ivy Club. In Blue Hill, he was on the board of the Blue Hill Memorial Hospital and served as chairman for many years. He was also president of the Blue Hill Country Club.
Distinguished by his congeniality, generosity and wit, Charlie was noted for his ribald sense of humor. He was an enthusiastic cook, family man, a beloved friend, a force in his community, an adored husband, father and uncle.
He was predeceased by his sister Anne “Nanny” Cook and his son Peter. He is survived by his wife, Nancy, of East Blue Hill, his son, Charlie, and daughter-in-law, Sarah of Lambertville, N.J.
