Charles E. Holmes passed away on July 30, 2020 in Little Rock.
He was born February 1, 1926, in Perry, Arkansas to Erwin and Nora Holmes.
Charles graduated from high school in May, 1944, and joined the Navy the next day serving in both WWII and the Korean War. Charles married Louise Brents on June 16, 1952. They made White Hall, AR their home and raised a family there. Charles worked at the Pine Bluff Arsenal for 33 years retiring from his job as an Electronics Technician in 1985.
When he wasn’t busy serving on committees or helping out at his church, he volunteered for the VA Hospital where he worked for 23 years driving the DAV Van from White Hall to Little Rock each week or serving as Patient Escort in the hospital. He was a member of the Lions Club and volunteered with the White Hall Booster Club. He was a member of the White Hall United Methodist Church for 52 years before moving to Little Rock and joining Trinity UMC. Charles truly loved life to the fullest and found great pleasure in helping and spending time with family and friends.
