Charles B. Bembry of Lake Butler passed away peacefully on June 14, 2023, following a sudden illness. He was born in Live Oak, FL to the late Charlie Earl Bembry and Ella Mae Bembry on June 1, 1952.
He served his country with pride and honor through the US Air Force and was a Vietnam Veteran.
Following his courageous service to our country, Charles worked in the construction trade for many years, up until he became disabled. He was known for his hard work and fought hard for what he believed in. He battled and beat many surgeries, illnesses, and was an extremely proud cancer survivor.
Charles had a passion for the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, and canning vegetables. He also loved to play poker with his buddies. His greatest passion in life was his family, especially those that called him Pa!
