    Since hearing of the passing of Charlie, it has affected me in many ways.

    Charlie was a big part of 4H, being the leader of a 4H Club and even purchasing muffins and pies from the Pir & Muffin auction at the fair. Charlie and Julie were both inducted into the Iowa 4H Hall of Fame in 2008. As a 4H’er, and also reflecting on all of this, I’ve come to realize how much of a loss it is for not only me on a personal level, but for Harrison County 4H. I will miss seeing his bid on the Pies and muffins, and surly the Farm will never be the same without Charlie showing everyone his prized possessions.

    May you rest in paradise, Charlie

    We were saddened to hear of Charlie’s passing. We enjoyed time spent with Charlie and Julie through the REC activities we shared. Charlie always made an evening out, fun and full of laughter. Charlie was an excellent board member for the REC and always offered his good advice to the Co-operative. I felt very privileged to work with Charlie. We pray that you will feel the love and support of God, family and friends. Bill and Diana

    I am so sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. I’d have so much fun with him when I see him out dancing. Or at his 85th birthday party… He will be missed by many. Prayers to his wife Julie and the rest of his family.

    I just heard about Charlie’s passing and wanted to pass on our condolences from the whole Jones famiily in Arizona. My father Gary always spoke highly of him. May he rest in peace.
