Charles A. Elkins, age 79, born Nov. 21, 1935, passed away July 16, 2015, at his home in Grove City after seven years of Alzheimer’s.
He is survived by wife of 19 years, Jacquelyn; her children, Michelle Handley and Steve Jones; and his children, Cammy Elkins, Cindi Bills and Charles Elkins.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Nancy, in 1993; son, Chris, in 2004; and brother, Bobby.
He retired from Praxair and was a member of Grove City United Methodist Church and Grove City Masonic Lodge #689 F&AM. For 30 years, he was the glass sculptor at The Circleville Pumpkin Show. The love of his life was flying radio controlled airplanes with TORKS.
Per Chuck’s wishes, there will be no visitation hours.
As Chuck’s caregiver, I could have never completed this journey with my husband without my faith and the help of hospice. They were amazing. Please remember Mt. Carmel Hospice with memorial gifts to Mt. Carmel Foundation, 6150 E. Broad St., Columbus, OH 43213 in his memory.
Arrangements with The Spence-Miller Funeral Home, Grove City, with online guest book at www.spencemillerfuneralhome.com.
