Charlie Whitaker

January 20, 1946 - October 30, 2021

 

During the afternoon hours of Saturday, October 30th, 2021, Charles “Charlie” Roy Whitaker, age 75, of Fletcher, North Carolina, passed away at Park Ridge Hospital in Hendersonville, North Carolina.  The son of the late Vollie Sydney Whitaker, Sr. and Idabelle Brown Whitaker, he was born in Buncombe County, North Carolina on January 20, 1946.

 

A member of Truth Missionary Baptist Church, Charlie, following 33 ½ years, retired from Cranston Print Works.  An avid North Carolina Tar-Heels fan, he enjoyed fishing, camping, yard work and mowing the grass.  Charlie was affectionately known as “Charlies Angels” because of all the girls in his family.

 

Left to cherish his memories are his loving wife of 52 years, Mary Jo Whitaker; one son, Marcus “Marc” Lee Whitaker of Fletcher; one sister, Shirley Inscoe (Al) of Mooresville, North Carolina; and one brother, Vollie Whitaker, Jr. (Carol) of Fletcher.  Charlie is also survived by two sister-in-law, Kathy Dalton and Glenda Pearson; nieces and nephews, Keith, Sherry, Laura, Lynette, Cliff, David and Jennifer; great nieces and nephews, Kayla, Cierra, Taylor, Kendra, Mabel, Lucy, Michael, Jonathan, Abbi, Quinton, Shelby, Anthony, Joseph, Jeannie, Andrew, Wesley, Finley and Brenna; and a special friend, Wendell Wilkie.

 

A celebration of Charlie’s life will be held on Saturday, November 13th, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. at Arden Missionary Baptist Church with Pastor Don Birchfield and Pastor Stephen Israel officiating.  The family will receive friends from 2:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m., prior to the service, at the church.
