Charles Oscar Highley, Sr. left this world during the morning hours Monday (August 6th) a warrior and with his best friend Linda by his side. In his 77 years of life Charles significantly impacted the lives of so many and his kindness and compassion were unmatched and unending. A Jack of all trades there was nothing that Charles couldn't do or fix, and he was always a phone call away to help anyone in need for any reason. Surviving is his wife Linda, married for 41 years, his Brother Edward (Carol), his children Sheryl, Charlie (Shawn), Gene (Deanna), Chris (Traci), Dawn (Joe), Liz (Kenny), Mandy (Nathan), and Michael. He is also survived 17 Grandchildren and 17 Great Grandchildren. Charles was preceded in death by his Mother Beatrice, Father Oscar, Brother John Robert, Sisters Ruth, Evelyn, May and Marcella. A celebration of Charles's life will be at the House Pub, 16 South Riverside Drive, St. Charles, IL 60174 on Tuesday, August 14th from 5-8pm. Please come share a memory and raise a glass to the most wonderful human being we all know. We ask that in lieu of flowers please consider donating to or cause, giving to others was what Charles was all about.
