McFarland, Charles Chuck

Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Tri-City Electrical Contractors, Inc. passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack on Saturday, December 27th.

Chuck had been with Tri-City since 1995 and was responsible for all financial management and reporting, as well as all administrative departments of the Company, including information systems, human resources, safety and training, purchasing, fleet maintenance and contract administration. A Certified Public Accountant, Chuck had over forty years’ experience providing financial and administrative management expertise in the construction industry. As CFO at Tri-City, Chuck led the company through many challenging times, through economic peaks and valleys, through the sale of the company in 1998 to its buyback by senior management in 2003. His financial expertise was widely recognized by construction, accounting, banking and insurance professionals. Ever with his eye on excellence, Chuck could find the humor in any given situation, even if it was at his own expense. He was a leader, mentor, friend and advocate for all Tri-City employees and was the author of many, often anonymous, kindnesses to employees in need. He encouraged education, whether it was a trade apprentice program or an academic degree to the point where, at his urging, the Board of Directors established a scholarship program for children and grandchildren of Tri-City employees.

Previous to his employment with Tri-City, he served as Vice President and Treasurer of one of the nation’s largest electrical contractors and as President and CEO of a national communications construction engineering and service company.

A U.S. Naval Officer, Chuck served as a Supply Officer aboard the USS John F. Kennedy CV-67.

He received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in 1967 from Manhattan College.

Chuck was an avid reader, especially military history and held anyone who had served or is currently serving in the military in the highest regard. And he loved spending time with his grandchildren!

Chuck McFarland led by example and will be missed by everyone at Tri-City Electrical Contractors, Inc. His legacy to our company is the standard of excellence he provided and the friendship and support he gave to us all.
