OBITUARY

Charles Marvin Tompkins

December 3, 1940May 6, 2018

Charles Marvin Tompkins, 77, passed away May 6, 2018. He was born December 3, 1940 in Hamilton County, Florida. He and Dotty resided in their home for the past 20 years in Middleburg, Florida. Charles fulfilled the calling of God on his life. He set an example of living a Christian life before others, to Serve & Protect his community for over 33 years as a Law Enforcement Officer. I once said to him, “if you had not been injured on duty, I don’t believe you would ever have Retired.” He just grinned at me. He knew, understood the Law & loved Law Enforcement; 100% a Law Man. I told him he could have been a Lawyer.

Charles joined Gideon’s International, to Serve & Minister to his community the Love of his Savior. He served in the South Campus of Clay County. He and Dotty were involved in giving out Bibles at Churches, the County Fair, all over Clay County; Sharing about Jesus, Prayer Ministry, Deacon, Church Intercessory Prayer Leaders.

Along with a few close Friends, they cooked & filled Styrofoam Trays (100+) of Hot Food to hand to anyone on the streets in need. Everyone stayed until all the food was gone, Bibles given out, everyone was prayed with 1:1.

Over time, Charles & Dotty met many people from all walks of life in need of Jesus, leading them in a Prayer of Salvation & Redemption. One day, they will meet them again.

At his local church he was involved in the same Ministry. Once a month the members of Good Samaritan Anglican Church had a Free Food Give Away for the Community. Charles loved talking to people (as most of us know). Huh? He was a natural in Ministering to others. I teased him about his always talking to everyone; told him I believed he would talk to a Sign Post, that couldn’t move. He loved teasing unsuspecting friends & people with his many jokes, and then laughing. He got a funny out of it. I could write a book about his Story Telling (as so can many of you.) I think his “Wild Man" story was a riot. I was asked to share about his Hobbies. His hobby was people. He was a People Person. We’ve often been teased about being People Collectors.

His career included several different Agencies: Hamilton County Florida Sheriff's Department- Chief Deputy State of Florida- State Attorney Investigator State of Florida D.O.C. - Inspector, North Florida Prisons & Jails Clay County Florida Sheriff's Department- Administrator of Clay County Jail (New Jail Building Program)

Dottie, It was always clear that you had a wonderful, loving, fun marriage while serving the Lord. Since I didn't get to see you all much in the last few years, I specifically remember running into you at Hardees and at DQ..........and enjoying such wonderful visits both times. You both always showed the joy of the Lord as well your happiness to be together. I will continue to pray for you.
