Obituary for Charles E. "Charlie" Wall Sr.

Charles E. “Charlie” Wall Sr., 72, of Mount Carmel, Illinois, went to his heavenly home Sunday, November 12 at home, surrounded by his loving family. He was born December 26, 1950, in Harrisburg, Illinois, the son of Alta (Oldham) Brown and Cletes Wall. He married Kathryn Hodgson on February 4, 1977, and together they celebrated forty-six years of marriage, focused on their faith and family.


Charlie attended college at Indiana University, South Bend. He proudly served his country in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. He was stationed on Oahu Island in Honolulu County, Hawaii. He was a diehard St. Louis Cardinals fan. Charlie loved going to the beach on vacations. His favorite thing to do was sit and watch the tides roll in. He was known for long, entertaining stories which he loved to repeat often.


Charlie loved spending time with his grandkids. He supported them in every event they had, whether it be sports or school plays, it didn’t matter, he was there to show his support, cheer them on and let them know PaPa loved them and was always proud of them.


Charlie preached the Gospel for over forty years. He retired from the Lighthouse Church in Patton Illinois. He attended Heartland Worship Center. Charlie was a faithful man who loved the Lord. He managed his illness with strength and grace. While he fought his battle with cancer, he never lost his sense of humor. Throughout his entire journey, he cracked jokes, made silly faces at the grandkids, and even pulled some light-hearted pranks. He had a great ability to make others smile and his sense of humor will be missed.
