Charlie M. Albright age 80 joined his beautiful daughter Michelle (Shelly) Y. Albright in heaven Saturday evening December 19, 20 with his loving wife of 60 years by his side.
Charlie and Penny had a love for each other that didn’t go unnoticed by people around them. Not long ago when Charlie was asked how he would sum up his marriage in one word his response was a lot of fun with a smile that made his eyes sparkle.
Charlie was born Feb 16, 1940 and was proceeded in death by his parents and two brothers Fred and Paul Albright.
He survives by his wife Penny (Warfel) Albright of Cardington, 3 siblings Mary Walter of Port Clinton, Linda Foster of New Bloomington, Bob Albright & Ronnie (Tammy) Albright of Ossian Indian and many nieces and nephews.
Charlie had a great since of humor with an ornery streak where you weren’t sure what he would say or do next. To say the least he was always the life of the party and everyone loved being around him. That is why the local well known business Charles Tavern (Cardington) was such a huge success.
Charlie was a part of the big brother’s program for 9 years of which he mentored Dave Zimmerman who he was enormously proud of and remained friends to this day. Charlie was an incredibly talented artist and well known around Marion. As a result, the Marion Firefighter 379 ask him to design and draw a 10-page coloring book for them. His imagination and artistic gift allowed him to open a local wood shop for a few years. Building things with his hands that he designed was his greatest passion. Charlie was a social butterfly, so it was no surprise when he decided to become a realtor at the former Jim Spires Realty of Mt. Gilead.
No services will be he held at this time due to the virus. A memorial service will be scheduled and announced sometime this summer to celebrate his life.
Gompf Funeral Service is honored to have been chosen to assist the Albright family with Charlie’s final wishes.
