Obituary of Charles D. Trescot Jr.
Charles D. Trescot Jr., age 95, of Hampton, Virginia was called home on Saturday, May 21, 2022. Charles was born August 10, 1926. He was a native of Henderson, NC, a member of the First Methodist Church, and a resident of Hampton for 71 years. He was a loving, devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Charlie was kind and generous to others, and constantly looked out for his neighbors. He has always had a love for airplanes and flying. He began building model airplanes at early ages. He later went on to get his pilot license. Charlie also enjoyed listening to the big band music and playing the piano. Nothing could bring a smile or laughter to him faster than watching the grand/great-children play or hearing stories about their adventures! Charlie went to NC State College of Engineering graduating in 1951. He received a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering-Aeronautical Option degree. During college, he was called to serve in the Army Air Corps from Feb 1945 until Nov 1946. Charlie went to work at NACA (NASA) in 1951 as an Aeronautical Research Scientist, and retired after 35 years of service. He was a founding member of the Tidewater Flying Club and served as the secretary for 25 years. While owning an airplane, he continued his membership because he enjoyed working on the club airplanes and talking with the other pilots. He is preceded in death by his wife, Ann Trescot. He is survived by: son, Charles D Trescot III (Wanda); two daughters, Nancy T Kidd (Reggie) and Virginia Trescot; five grandchildren, Amy Sharp (Lindsey), Brian Kidd (Susan), Paul Kidd (Lindsay), Charles D Trescot IV (Jennifer), Ashley Hazelwood (Alex); 11 great-grandchildren, Collin Sharp, Will Sharp, Ian Sharp, Hailie Kidd, Chesney Trescot, Charles Hazelwood, Caroline Hazelwood, Catherine Hazelwood, Levi Kidd, Everett Kidd and Katie Biggs; and nieces, nephew and cousin. The family will receive friends on Friday May 27, 2022 at 2pm at Parklawn-Wood Funeral Home. A Graveside service will be followed at 3pm at Parklawn Memorial Park (2551 N. Armistead Avenue, Hampton VA 23666). The family would like to thank the staff of the 4th floor at Sentara for the compassionate care they provided dad. Sentara Home Health was also very kind these last few months, especially Angie.
