Charles faithfully served his country in the United States Army. He worked many years as an engineer for General Telephone & Electronics Corporation, (GTE), where he retired. For relaxation, he and Susie enjoyed camping at many area campgrounds. Charles enjoyed fishing, particularly when his grandsons were able to join him. He grew an abundant garden and enjoyed taking care of his yard. He was handy at carpentry projects for the family home. Charles was very generous in giving to others. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather who cherished his family dearly. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Charles leaves behind his loving wife, Susie; daughters, Gussie Dickenson and husband Glenn of Owensville, IN, and Michelle Wilkinson of Tampa FL; three grandchildren, Chelse Wilkinson, Dylan Stefanich and Colton Stefanich; brothers, Larry (Judy) Wilkinson and Tim (Karole) Wilkinson; sisters, Carolyn (Gary) Pittsford and Connie (Fred) Rieffel; many loved nieces and nephews. Charles was preceded in death by his parents.
