Charles worked as a maintenance superintendent at Georgia Pacific in Monticello, Ga. Following his retirement from GP, he worked at PMC in Forsyth, Ga.
Charles was proud of being a Mason. He enjoyed his family and friends, as well as good music, sharing good coffee and conversation with his wife, and watching birds. He considered himself to be a lover and protector of nature, all animals and wildlife, even snakes.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sister Ann. Surviving in addition to his wife Jackie W. Farmer, are his son Charles J. Farmer (Erin) of Atlanta, Ga; daughter Caroline Davis (Ken) of Macon, Ga; grandson Cooper Barrett; granddaughter Marigold Aube-Farmer (arriving in December); one sister, Joyce Garrett (Richard) of Lexington, Kentucky.
Charles desired no memorial service. His wish was to be allowed to continue living through the many memories made with those he loved and considered friends. He truly believed... “Old soldiers never die, they simply fade away.
