Charles Edgerton Jackson, Jr. went to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Feb. 6, 2018.

He was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Lorraine Jackson; five daughters, Midge Kaplan, Susan Wilson, Lynn Hutzler, Vicky Snelnick and Lillian Winning; five sons-in-law that he thought of as sons; 13 grandchildren; and 17 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sisters, Patricia Fegan and Martha Singleton.

He is preceded in death by his father, Charles E. Jackson, Sr.; his mother, Mary Gertrude Jackson; his brother, Harold Jackson; and his grandson, Kyle Wilson.

He was filled with kindness and compassion and loved and lived life to the fullest. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1946, served in the United States Navy during WWII, and loved his country all of his life.

His greatest love was his precious wife, Lorraine Jackson, who was always by his side, followed by his love for his daughters, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He believed that there was nothing more important than family and nothing made him happier than to be surrounded by his loved ones. He would frequently be heard saying “Loved you yesterday, love you still, always have and always will.”

His family will always hold him in their hearts with the greatest of love, the deepest respect, and the fondest of memories. Rest in peace, Daddy, we love you always . . .
