LABELLE - Charles Baumeyer, a resident of LaBelle for the past 28 years, passed away on Oct. 3, 2013 in Evansville, Ind. He was an active member of the community until early July 2013 when he returned to Evansville to be with his family. Charlie also known as "Squeaky" was a U.S. Navy veteran of WWII, builder and craftsman by trade. Those of us who knew him in the LaBelle area will remember him as someone who wore a smile and helped out others in his own cantankerous way. As a master carpenter, he did odd jobs for lots of folks. He worked with Hendry County Habitat for Humanity as a crew boss and was responsible for the construction of 7 Habitat homes. He ran a Wednesday Soup Kitchen at the Salvation Army, volunteered delivering Meals on Wheels and was a regular at Dort's Ceramics in Alva. In his later years, he continued with volunteer building projects, such as painting the Women's Club, crafting the bar top at the American Legion and building a steeple, ramp and stained glass cross for his church, The Community Faith Fellowship. Charlie was born April 3, 1922 to Charles and Olga (Krietemeier) Baumeyer. He passed away in the home of his nephew, Steve and Gretta Jackson. He was predeceased by his wife of 30 years, Betty (Wilson) Baumeyer; his brother, James Baumeyer; sister, Anna Mae (Baumeyer) Jackson; and daughter, Christina (Baumeyer) Jones. He leaves behind daughter, Judith Ann Unger (Ken Kiburis) of Rosedale Ind.; sons, John Baumeyer (Donna) and David Baumeyer both of Evansville; six grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and many dear friends. Memorial donations may be made to the LaBelle Veterans Memorial Park care of the American Legion Post #130 at 699 Hickpochee Avenue in LaBelle.
