Charlie was a man who lived life to the fullest and loved to share stories about his life. He often talked about his time as a meat cutter in the West Bottoms. He also enjoyed talking about his time on the Sheriff’s Patrol, but perhaps what Charlie was best known for were his days cockfighting and breeding game roosters. He would regale you with stories of the people he met, who became like family to him. Along with the stories of his chickens came the fish tales. One of Charlie & Vera’s favorite past times was fishing together, with friends, or their grandchildren. Surely, he & Vera will once again be fishing and playing cards with Jack & Betty Mize. Everyone who knew Charlie fell in love with him. Even those who met him briefly went home knowing they had met someone truly special.

Charlie was born to Marion J. Passler Sr. & Netti Adair Passler, both preceding him in death. Also preceding him in death were his wife Vera (Uzelac) Passler, brothers Samuel, Warren, and Marion “Jr.” Passler, grandson Bernie Charles Passler, great granddaughter Lily Michelle Passler.
