Charles F. Fleming

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Charles F. Fleming.

Born March 20, 1931, to Dorothy A. Winters and H. Frederick Fleming in Nixon, Penn Township, he took pride in being a descendent of numerous early Pennsylvania settlers.

Charles was valedictorian of the class of 1949 of Penn Township High School,
a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, and a veteran of the Army Security Agency.
He was a 32nd degree Mason, a member of the Butler Victory Lodge.

Sure that he was the longest living resident of Penn Township he was a font of local history.
His second home was Dents Run, Pennsylvania, where he dearly loved to visit and regale his
fellow hunters with tales of that area.

Charles was associated with Winters and Fleming road construction from his earliest years
and throughout his working life, except for a brief stint as purchasing agent for Halstead and Mitchell.

Not effusive, very serious, Charles was always mentally building, repairing, or improving things.

Charles is survived by his wife Mary Ellen (Schenck), whom he married January 31, 1953,
his son Douglas (Judy Powell), his daughter Martha E. (Brian Noah), and his grandchildren,
Callie Lynn Fleming of Mt. Pleasant, Pennsylvania, and Samuel Fleming Congdon and
Ona Louise Congdon of Montana and a number of nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his beloved daughter Rebecca Ann Congdon,
his sister Mary A. Simpson, and brother Rodger L. Fleming

Private services will be held at the family’s convenience with burial at Bear Creek Cemetery.

Arrangements are being handled by Thompson - Miller Funeral Home, Inc., 124 East North Street Butler, PA 16001.
