Charles Barnard DeShazo

September 9, 1956May 29, 2019

Charles Barnard DeShazo, 62, of Martinsville passed away on Wednesday, May 29, 2019. He was born September 9, 1956 in Spencer, Va. to the late Thomas Dalton DeShazo, Jr. and Josephine “Jo” Baron DeShazo.

He is survived by his sisters, Julie DeShazo of Martinsville and Helen Jo DeShazo of Spencer; brother, Thomas Dalton DeShazo, III; niece, Hunter Elizabeth DeShazo.

Charley was a graduate of Drewry Mason High School and attended Patrick Henry Community College. He was a member of Old Well Christian Church. Charlie loved his family and his passion was playing musical instruments. He was sweet, funny, caring and schizophrenic. Those who struggle with mental illness know what a daily fight schizophrenia brings and Charley faced the fight bravely. For those who don’t understand this disease, it doesn’t discriminate and is relentless. Our hearts and minds need to be open to those suffering from mental illness.

A memorial service will be held at 6:00 p.m. Thursday, June 13, 2019 at McKee-Stone Funeral Home and will be officiated by Reverend Roy Parker. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Old Well Christian Church, 110 Old Well Road, Spencer, VA 24165.

Charley always made me smile. He had a sense of humor like no one else I’ve ever met. He was generous and did what he said he would do and expected the same from others. I will miss him.
