 Charlie knew that death would bring him into the presence of his Savior, not based on his own merit, but because he trusted in the sacrifice of Christ on his behalf: “By grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God, not of works,” Ephesians 2:8-9.


 He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Velva Brewer; his daughters Bonnie (Court) Longbrook, and Brenda (Dave) Lake; his grandchildren Edward (Elizabeth) Mathias, Melissa (Robert) Alles, Charles (Connie) Mathias, John (Keri) Mathias, and Rebecca (David) Barlow; and his great-grandchildren Kaleb, Skyler, Katelyn, Sydney, Hannah, Anjali, Asha, Elijah, Diya, Lillian, and Marcus.


 A Celebration of Charlie’s life was held Saturday, March 28 at Kaysville Bible Church,  Kaysville, Utah. 


 Interment, with military honors, was held at Kaysville City Cemetery.


 In lieu of flowers, his family requests donations be made to Kaysville Bible Church Missions Fund, P.O. Box 262, Kaysville, Utah, 84037.
