Charles Wayne Budd

Columbus -

November 8, 1957-January 4, 2019 (61 years old)

Charles Budd, known as "Pastor Charlie" of Columbus, Ohio, was received into the loving arms of his Savior, Jesus Christ, on Friday, January 4, 2019, after a courageous fight with cancer. His heart's desire and life's purpose was to spread the love of Jesus and the truth of His saving grace. He influenced and encouraged others through his charisma, passion, and sense of humor. He enjoyed studying the Bible, receiving a degree in Pastoral counseling. Pastor Charlie served the Lord through Team Extreme, as a missionary to Ghana, Africa, and on a daily basis wherever he could. He ministered on most continents, multiple countries and much of the United States. His most recent trip, a highlight in his life, was to the Holy Land where he served as pastor to his tour group. He was born on November 8, 1957, in Long Beach, California, and spent most of his early years in Lancaster, Ohio. He was the son of Judy Coyer Knotts and James Budd (deceased). Charlie will be fondly remembered in the many memories he leaves in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. He is survived by his mother Judy Coyer Knotts; brothers James (Cindy) Budd, Steven Budd, and Shawn Budd; children Jessica (Joshua) Hachat, Emily Budd Yonek, Preston Budd, Natalie Budd and Daniel Budd; grandchildren Isaiah Hachat, Naomi Hachat and Christopher Champa; aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. In addition, he is survived by his angel caregiver and loving partner, Paula Green. Cremation has taken place. There will be a celebration of life service on January 27, at Fairfield Christian Church in Lancaster, Ohio, at 2 pm, with Pastor Mark Barbee officiating. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Save the Children (Africa), Compassion International (Ghana) or Kobacker House.
