Charles "Charlie" Franklin Stevens Sr, 81, of Indianapolis, formerly of Wayne County, KY passed away on November 13, 2018.

Charlie was born in Wayne County, KY on May 25, 1937 to the late Robert and Delia (Abbot) Stevens. From 1956-1959 he was an Airborne Infantry with the Army and served a year in Korea.  After proudly serving his country, he came home to work for General Motors for 46 years before retiring. He devoted his life to helping others, a practice he continued beyond retirement.  He was a 32nd Degree Mason.  He loved kids and was very passionate about helping them.  He would volunteer to pick up children, take them to their doctors appointments, wait for them, and then take them back home; he did this at least 250 times.  

Charlie stayed active and was avid about taking care of himself, he still went to the gym to workout well into his 80s.  He liked to read magazines and never kept food in the house, preferring to eat out.  He loved his family and spending time with them, his grandchildren were everything to him.  He never missed a major event, always making sure he was there for them.

Charlie is survived by his son Charles Franklin Stevens II; his brother Harry; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Charlie is preceded in passing by his wife Joyce Stevens; his children Elizabeth Marie, Kelly Sue, and Robert Allen; and his sisters Dorris and Norma.
