Claude Estace "CE" McKinney Altman, the youngest child of Jerry and Kathy Altman, passed away on the morning of July 15, 2020. He was 38.
From birth, CE was faced with numerous challenges, both mentally and physically. Despite those limitations, he found joy for himself while also bringing that same joy to anyone who was ever around him.
The family will miss CE's infectious and mischievous smile, his loving embrace of those around him and his constant joy for life.
He grew up in Monticello, under the care of his parents and his maternal grandmother and grandfather (Camilla and Raymond McKinney).
He attended CDC, Twin Lakes, and graduated from Tri-County Opportunity School in Noblesville.
He is survived by his parents, Jerry and Kathleen (McKinney) Altman; his siblings Eleanor Prescott, John Patrick Altman and Daniel Altman; his in-laws Phillip Prescott, Stella Davis and Haley Carney; his nephews John, Benjamin and Thomas Prescott; and nieces Kennedy and Madison Altman.
He will be dearly missed by those that knew him and loved him.
Private family services will be held due to the COVID-19 virus.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to CDC Resources, 5053 W. Norway Road, Monticello, IN 47960.

I didn’t know CE, but I know his parents. In recent years I gave two presentations to CDC consumers that CE may have seen. One was in the CDC building work area on a trip my wife and I had taken to Africa. I showed a lot of images of birds and animals that everyone enjoys. The other presentation was given at the Christian Church. On that one, I taught the audience owl calls of the three most common owls that we see or hear. The whole audience was hooting before I was done! I hope that CE was in attendance. And I hope that you have many precious memories such as these. May God bless.

CE was a light in this dark world and will be terribly missed by those who cared for him.
CE was a bright, happy person who changed the lives of countless people who cared for him through the years. My life would be a lot darker had I never met him.
