Charles H. Springer, age 90, of East Falmouth, MA, died Monday, October 21st, 2019 at home surrounded by family.
Charles was a proud World War 2 vet, husband, father, grandfather and great- grandfather. He spent his life post military doing what he loved, painting. He did this until he retired, where he found solace in painting the interior of his home until the ripe age of 89. He was a funny character, who cracked jokes at every opportunity and was always up for a good party. He was always making people laugh. He enjoyed spending his time with his grandchildren, Cadence Barrett, Bryson Barrett and Cian Barrett of E. Falmouth. They were the light of his life. He was a lifetime member of The American Legion Post 459 in New Bedford, Ma and took pride in his service for his country.
He is survived by his wife Bonnie Springer of E. Falmouth, brother Allen Springer of N. Brunswick, NJ, children Jessica Barrett of E. Falmouth, Shawn Springer of E. Falmouth, Richard Springer, Debbie Springer, Jimmy Springer of NJ, and Joyce Springer of Orangevale, CA, as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
A visitation will be held from 10-11 AM on Thursday, October 31st, at Chapman Cole and Gleason, 475 Main Street, Falmouth with a funeral service following at 11:30 AM at John Wesley United Methodist Church, 270 Gifford St. Falmouth.
