Resident of Castro Valley and Union City, CA
Charles Wallace Bishop passed away peacefully on October 26, 2013 at The Masonic Home in Union City, California. He was 90 years old.

Better known as Charlie, he was preceded in death by his son Thomas and is survived by his wife of 67 years, Patricia, son Stephen and his wife Marilou Bishop of Fremont, California, daughter Carole Fitzgerald of Santa Cruz, California, and daughter-in-law Paula Bishop of Santa Cruz, California. Charlie was affectionately known as "Boppie" to his five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Charlie's love for his family was everything to him.

He will always be remembered for his love of life and the smile on his face. Always willing to help others, tee time was his favorite time of day. If he could fit in a game of pool on any given day, then life was good.

Charlie proudly served his country in World War II and was an active member of Crow Canyon Masonic Lodge No. 551 in Castro Valley, California for many years. He will be greatly missed by many.
