Azarow, Bernard B., age 97, of Fort Lee on Tuesday, November 30,2021, beloved husband to Judith Azarow. Mr. Azarow was born in Jersey City in 1924 and served as a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II. He saw significant action in the Pacific Theater. Post war, Chuck enjoyed a successful career in the travel industry before becoming an automotive executive with the DiFeo Automotive Group, Jersey City.

Chuck and Judith shared a deep interest in art and education. Upon the death of his son, Michael, they established the Michael Azarow Memorial Scholarship as an endowment that has benefitted generations of students at Saint Peter’s University. Known for his deep interest in affairs of the state, nation and world, Chuck was a friend to many of his customers and will be missed dearly by his family and friends.
