He was preceded in death by one great-grandson; both parents; and brothers, Frank and Carl Pettis.
Charles worked as a banker in Kewanee, Hanna City, and Morton. He loved building homes and was constantly working on his “to do” list. Charles’ true loves were cars and going to auctions.
He would drop everything to help his family, give his advice, and give a big hug. Charles was friendly, easy to talk to and knew no stranger. He was a jokester and loved to laugh.
