(Despain) House. Charles is a 1971 graduate of Lawrence Central High School. He

Charles was a tremendously loving individual. He never had a bad word to say about
anyone. He was overly dedicated to his work and never missed a day, even while under
the weather. Charles was a true survivor who battled cancer for 15 years. He never
complained, never took a break, and never gave up hope. He worked as a laborer for a
few construction sites around Indianapolis over the years. He retired after 10 years with
Gibraltar Construction. In Charles’ younger years, he enjoyed riding 4-wheelers with his
son Charlie and taking family vacations to Panama City. In his more mature years,
Charles joined the Masonic Lodge in Lawrence, enjoyed riding Harley Davidsons, hiking
in Fort Ben Harrison State Park, looking forward to time spent with his brothers,
spending time with friends, volunteering for 8 years with his comrades in Post #261 for
area Funeral Guard honors, and supporting our 4-legged friends with the Humane
Society. But above all, family was Charles’ priority, and his family will miss him beyond
