"Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to the wind to help the flowers grow.
If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses and all my prejudice against my fellow man.
Give my soul to God.
If by chance you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs you.
If you do all I have asked, I will live forever."
Charles Bennett Adderly passed away in Vancouver, Washington on May 23, 2011 at the age of 56. He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on April 21, 1955 to Marilyn Swanson and later adopted by his step father Robert Adderly.
Charles grew up in Salt Lake City and attended Granger High School. He joined the Army in 1973 and was stationed in Germany during peace time. After returning to the States he moved to Bow, Washington in the Mt. Vernon area.
Charles' love of boats and anything to do with boats was his life. He worked as a marine mechanic in marinas and boat yards, the last being Nelson Marina where he worked for six years. If he wasn't fixing boats he was playing on them. You could always find Charles on or near any body of water; rivers, lakes, the ocean, it didnt matter. If his boat could float on it, he was there.
Charles met Lynette Jewell several years ago and were just recently married in March of 2011.
He is survived by his loving wife Lynette of Dayton, OR, his son Charles Jr., his daughters Julie, Gina and the twins, Tasha and Tara, his grandchildren, Aria, James, Levi, Cecilia, Telaiah, and Sonya. Charles also has 6 brothers and 2 sisters. He is preceded in death by his father Robert Adderly who passed away only two years ago.
There will be a private family gathering to remember Charles at a park in Vancouver at a later date.
