Charles Harrison

Mr. Charles Harrison, age 92, of Opp, Alabama passed away Saturday, October 8, 2022 in the Opp Health & Rehab.

Charles was born March 22, 1930 in Geneva County, Alabama to his late parents, Pearlie & Brack Harrison. His parents were tenant farmers, so the family moved around quite a bit as children and young adults. Charles settled down in Toledo, Ohio where he proudly worked and retired from Chrysler-Jeep Automotive after thirty-three years of service. He was always proud of his Alabama roots; therefore, it was only fitting that he and Pat move back to Alabama after his retirement.

Mr. Harrison is survived by his wife of fifty-four years, Patricia Ann Schenavar Harrison; daughter, Mary Evelyn Lanning & husband, Joe; step-daughter, Deborah Halsey; step-sons, James Smith & Marcy, William Smith & Janet, Randal Smith & Marcia and Christopher Slomkowski & Beth; step-daughter-in-law, Joyce Smith; brothers, Winston Harrison, Nick Harrison and Don Harrison; 21 grandchildren and numerous great & great-great grandchildren. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, David Harrison; sisters, Ouida White, Fleeta Schadenfroh and Juanita Sigman; brothers, Wilmer Harrison and Winfred Harrison; and step-son, Lawrence Smith.

A rosary service will begin at 6:00 pm Tuesday, October 11, 2022 at Wyatt Funeral Home with visitation following until 8:00 pm.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 am Wednesday, October 12, 2022 at Christ the King Catholic Church with entombment following in Peaceful Acres Memorial Gardens.

Serving as pallbearers will be Daniel Kohler, Eric Madden, Charlie Madden, Eddie Harrison, Zack Harrison and Jamey Wismer.
