Charles Missey

Saint Jacob | Tuesday, June 1 2021 |

Charles H. "Charlie" Missey, age 91 of Saint Jacob, IL, died peacefully Tuesday, June 01, 2021, at his residence in Saint Jacob, IL. 

He was born on Wednesday, December 25, 1929, in Fertile, MO, the son of Joseph and Belle (nee Sonsoucie) Missey. 

On Saturday, September 03, 1955, he married Lola (Tootie) M. Missey nee Reding at Hope Lutheran Church, Highland, IL. 

Charlie was drafted into the US Army in 1951 serving two years during the Korean War. He was later employed with BFI, Acme, and he retired from Mississippi Gas Company. Charlie was a faithful member of Hope Lutheran Church, Highland; American Legion; and former member of the Teamsters Local 50-Belleville. Throughout his life, he enjoyed softball, bowling, fishing and golfing. His later hobbies included collecting scrap, playing cards and sitting on the swing visiting passersby. Charlie knew no strangers and this applied to the birds, squirrels and rabbits that seemed to know him. But Charlie’s wife, 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren were the greatest source of his pride and joy. His light will continue to shine in their smiles. His loving family is comforted by Charlies's personal relationship with his Lord and Savior.
