Charles "Charlie" Mason

Alton | Tuesday, May 5 2015

Charles (Charlie) Mason, 89, finished strong in his course of faith on Tuesday, May 5,

2015.

After graduating from Alton High, he served his country in the Navy during WWII.

Upon

coming home, he met the love of his life, Eileen Fenwick. They married and began a

family (Cathy & Jim) after Charlie graduated from Shurtleff College.

Charlie worked in finance and was a great provider, devoted husband & Dad. He loved

his grandkids, great grandkids, nieces, nephews, etc.; also sports and coaching.

Charlie

was fair and honest. He taught his kids the value of, and dignity in, work. Charlie was

always there for his family (including helping to raise his siblings) and for the underdog

in life. He loved a good joke and a story.

Charlie's faith flourished in the last season of life and was he was grateful to God for a

long, good life in which he overcame obstacles. Eileen was a huge blessing to him as

were many friends. He will be missed.
