Charles was with immediate family at the time of his passing. Charles was born on January 8th, 1953, in Ravenna, Ohio to mother, Sarah (Aldrich) Duty and Leroy Duty. Charles graduated from Warren Western Reserve High School and then served in the United States Army where he served his country during the Vietnam War.  Charles was a mason and worked in several industries until illness drove him to early retirement in Clover, South Carolina. In 2018, additional illness brought him to live with family in Illinois and then Bristol, Indiana.  Charlie was an avid College sports fan, and often would “tailgate” with his son and daughter-in-law in the garage to watch the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football team on Saturdays.  As a devout Christian, Charles, late in life, also became an ordained minister where he performed the wedding ceremony of two dear friends. Charles also recently became a member of the American Legion Post 143 in Bristol, Indiana where he was very proud to participate.
