Charles C. Heintz, Jr. was born on November 20, 1938 in Creston, Nebraska to Charles C. Heintz, Sr. and Mildred (Carlson) Heintz. He fell asleep in death on October 14, 2020 surrounded by his family at the Hospice House in Altamonte Springs, FL.
He married Lynn J. Cherpeske on January 11, 1963. They were blessed with two children, a son and a daughter.
He is survived by his cherished wife, Lynn of 57 years, his beloved daughter, Cheryl and her husband Mark Sprado and the apple of his eye, his two grandsons, Jason and Justin Sprado, all of Orlando, FL. He is also survived by his brother, Richard (Lorna) Heintz of Cleveland, TN, two sisters, Marjorie Sebastian of Cleveland, TN and Betty Wrobleski of Oglesby, IL. Additionally he is survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his son, Steven R. Heintz, his sister, LaDona Carter, and his sister JoAnn (who died in infancy).
His family has lost the most wonderful husband, father, father in-law and grandfather anyone could ever ask for. He was also very dear to all of his siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews. He left behind so many memories to cherish.
He holds a special place in the heart of ALL who knew him, especially those in his spiritual family. He will always be remembered for his beautiful qualities of mildness, kindness and humility.
He was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on October 9, 1965. During the last 55 years of his life he set a sterling example of telling many about his God, Jehovah and his hope for the future on a Paradise earth. He did this all the way to the last moments of his life.
Throughout his life he had various types of employment. However, what he enjoyed the most were his many years as a newspaper pressman and also as a machinist.
A virtual memorial talk will be given on October 24, 2020 at 3:00 P.M. Eastern Time, by Brian Cherpeske, an Elder from the Peru, IL Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
