Charles attended South Bloomfield United Methodist Church. He was a long-standing volunteer at Ashville’s Small-Town Museum. He was honored by the Ashville Community Men’s Club as the Distinguished Citizen in 2009. Charles was a kind, soft-spoken man who loved to sing (especially at church) and share stories of his childhood in Kentucky. During the summer you’d see him walking to the museum or sitting out back in his swing, reading or dozing. God Blessed him with a long, healthy life. He will be missed but we have the promise of seeing him again one day.
Family will receive friends Wednesday, August 3rd from 4-7 p.m. at Oliver-Cheek Funeral Home, 420 W. Main St. Ashville 43103 where services will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday August 4th with Pastor Floyd Hubbell officiating. Interment will follow at Floral Hills Memory Gardens, Circleville.
