Charles “Chuck” Brandon 82, of Prospect, went home to be with the Lord early in the morning of Wednesday March 11th. He was born at home in the Brandon Family Farmhouse, son of the late Theodore and Evelyn (Pyle) Brandon. Charles, also known to his family as “Pap” and “Old Chief” had a passion for jazz music that dated back to his high school days. He played in numerous bands and performed many gigs around the Butler area. Charles played the upright base and guitar along with many other instruments. He retired from the United States Postal Service and previously worked as a machinist/ maintenance worker at Pullman and Hallstead. Charles received his “wings” at an early age as a pilot and continued for many years as a flight instructor. He was an avid hunter, always telling others that the buck was bigger than it actually was. Charles enjoyed telling jokes and talking to everyone about the old days, his family, and the history of the community. Among his many passions, Charles was an avid antique and treasures collector, however he felt the most joy farming atop his tractor in the fields of the Brandon family homestead. Husband of Eleanor June Brandon for almost 63 years. Father of Thomas Brandon, Mary Burr, Dave Brandon, Darlene Killmeyer, and Steve Brandon. He is also survived by 8 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. There will be a private family gathering to occur at a later date. ARRANGEMENTS BY SPENCER D.
