Charles Plummer Obituary (1926-2021) – Greensboro, NC
Plummer, Charles Edward
August 1, 1926 – November 25, 2021
Charles Edward Plummer entered the presence of his Savior and first love Jesus Christ on November 25, 2021. A memorial service in honor of his life will be held at 4 p.m. on Sunday, December 5, followed by a hosted reception for all family and friends at Westover Church at 505 Muirs Chapel Rd., Greensboro, NC 27410.
Charlie was born on August 1, 1926, survived the Great Depression and took care of his mother and sister after the death of his father. At the age of 16, while reading the Bible at night, he made up his mind to follow Jesus for the rest of his life, a commitment that he kept wholeheartedly throughout his life. He founded Fleet-Plummer Hardware in Greensboro, NC, in 1949, married Fran Winslow in 1962, and adopted Frans two children, Bob and Beth. Charlie spent many years as a business owner in the ward, was a member of Westover Church, and participated in as many activities as possible to show and share the love of Jesus. He was an associate of Campus Crusade for Christ.
Charlie’s lifelong desire was to love Jesus, share Jesus, see others grow on their way with Jesus, and pray. After the death of his first wife in 2000, Charlie met Leonora Gay in 2004 and married her. Charlie lived his life for Jesus, always sharing, giving and caring for others. He spent his last days in his home with his wonderful carers, who reminisce and thank God for the many blessings in his life.
Charlie leaves behind his children Bob and Beth, his five grandchildren and his four great-grandchildren.
