We are deeply appreciative of all the love and support the Kibler family has given to our Dad over the years. During his lifetime, Charles enjoyed many pastimes like photography, camping, woodworking, computers, and playing cards. His favorite activity was reading the daily newspaper undisturbed. He enjoyed visiting his children when he was able to. He had many witty sayings which his children and grandchildren will be repeating for many years to come, thinking of him fondly. Private services for the family will be held on June 6, 2020. Memorial donations may be made to The American Heart Association at or the American Diabetes
