After he retired he built a beautiful southern style home in Sedan, Kansas and continued his hobbies of building the most beautiful cypress cabinets while always restoring a 55, 56, or 57 Chevys. Charles brought cooking deep fat fried turkeys to the SE Kansas & NE Oklahoma region almost 40 years ago before people in the mid-west ever heard of this Southern cooking technique. His love for family goes without saying, espeacially being a grandfather to 6 grandchildren & 9 great grandchildren.  He is survived by his wonderful wife Ann, married 56 years currently of Copan, OK, his 2 sisters, Elaine Mengarelli of Louisiana and Daisey Bourque of Houston, TX, his only daughter, Carla Welborn, and Son-in-Law, Freddy “Ted” Welborn of Leavenworth, Kansas.  The family recently had a celebration of life at his home in Copan, OK and requests any donations be made to Alzheimer’s Research.  Paw Paw Charles will be greatly missed by so many and we will never forget his great smile, wonderful laugh & we are all better human beings for knowing such a great man.
