Charles E. Cross

December 03, 1953 ‒ April 17, 2017

Mansfield, Ohio

Charles E. Cross passed away Monday morning, April 17, 2017 in his home surrounded by his family. He was 63.

He was born in Lodi, Ohio to parents Harry Sr. & Florence (Taylor) Cross. Charles’ family later moved to the Mansfield area, where he graduated from Mansfield Senior High School with the class of 1972.

An avid fisherman, Charles enjoyed and spent many hours fishing with his friends, Gerald and John.  He also enjoyed attending auctions, looking for unique items, and loved tinkering with his tractor. Charles always had a way to make people laugh and was the first one to be there for anyone who needed help.  He will be dearly missed by all who loved and knew him.

He is survived by his mother Florence Cross; sisters Shirley (Sam) Sinclair and Betty (Dennis) Koehler; brother Harry M. Cross Jr.; grandson Levi; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Charles was preceded in death by his father Harry M. Cross Sr., his son Wyatt Cross and brother Danny L. Cross.
