Charles Keith Lea

Mr. Charles Keith Lea passed from this life, Thursday, May 24, 2018, at his home in Wanilla.
Charles Keith Lea was born September 9, 1944, in Wanilla to Margaret and Dell Lea and lived his life on the banks of Bear Creek on the very same place he was born and raised. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, but reveled most in the times he had within the circle of friends and family he had. He was known in a wider circle of acquaintances through his many years of service to this area as rural mail carrier until his retirement. With a fondness for the real country music and western movies, his fun-loving character brought life to any gathering and will be missed by all.
Charles was preceded in death by his parents. His survivors include his wife, Dorothy; his pet, Sassy; his brother, Robert, and the many in-laws, cousins, nephews, nieces, great- and great-great nephews and nieces and the many friends who knew him best.
Services were held Sunday, May 27, 2018, at Wanilla Baptist Church in Monticello, with graveside services following in Wanilla Baptist Church Cemetery. Bro. Jeff Vosbrink officiated the services, with Wilson Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
