OBITUARY

Charles Edward Call of Washington, MO, departed this life in Washington on December 26, 2018, having reached the age of seventy-six years, six months and eleven days. Charles was born in Marquand, MO, on June 15, 1942, son of Cleo Edward Call and Levita Mae Call nee Mizzel. On November 18, 1967, he was united in marriage to Frances Louise Creely and four children came to bless this union.

Charles is survived by two sons, Scott Call and wife, Cheryl, of St. Clair, MO and Brian Call of St. Louis, MO; by two daughters, Christina Reynolds and husband, Jimmie, of Union, MO, and Dawn Lange and husband, James, of Des Arc, MO; by two sisters, Ginger Cantrel of High Ridge, MO, and Kay Robinson of Peoria, IL; by eleven grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, one sister-in-law, one brother-in-law, nieces, nephews, great and great-great-nieces and nephews, cousins and many friends.

Charles was preceded in death by his parents, Cleo and Levita Call; by his wife, Frances Call; by his infant brother, Ronnie Call, and by two sisters, Donna Hugley and Pat Ames.

Charles was a Christian, having been raised in the Pentecostal faith and believing in the Lord as his Savior. During his working career he was employed by Scullin Steel in Maplewood, MO, as a custodian. He enjoyed listening to music, especially The Beach Boys and Elvis Presley, putting together model cars and cooking. He was an avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan and enjoyed watching the games on television. He also spent time watching old movies, especially John Wayne movies. His children and grandchildren held a special place in his heart, as he did in their hearts. The love they shared and many precious memories they created will never be forgotten.

A kind and loving father, father-in-law, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, great and great-great-uncle, cousin and treasured friend, he will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved him.
