ALLEMAN, CHARLES LEE – age 88 went to his peaceful rest on November 15, 2011. He was a devoted and loving husband to his wife of 62 years, Reba Alleman, who preceded him in death on Thanksgiving Day in 2008. He was also a kind and loving father, grandfather and great grandfather. He proudly served his country in the Army during World War II. He spent many years working as a painter for Sears. Charles was a proud member of Middlebrook Pike Baptist Church for sixty-five years. He enjoyed traveling with his wife on mission trips and tending his garden.

Charles is survived by his daughter, Margaret; son-in-law, Roy; grandchildren, Diana and Benjamin; great grandchildren, Sarah, Maxwell and Josselyn.
