Church program: Charles Howard Carey Sr, husband of the late Nellie V Carey and son of the late Charles F and Della Carey, was born July 25, 1907 near Dover. He departed this life on Sunday November 23, 1986 at the home of his daughter Audrey Gibson. He was 79 years old.
His entire life was spent in and around the Dover and Cheswold areas. In the year of Our Lord 1936 on April 10 he was joined in holy matrimony with Nellie Ridgway, who preceded him in 1971. God blessed this union with a son and daughter. He retired as a self employed truck driver in 1969. God blessed him with good health until several years ago when his health began to fail. Truly we live in a world where solemn shadows are continually falling upon our path - shadows that teach us the uncertainty of death and that here on earth there is no abiding stay.
He leaves to cherish memories that will linger with them, a son Charles Howard Carey II, Felton DE; a daughter Audrey R Gibson; three sisters, Lula Clark, Milton DE, Henrietta Johnson and Grace Sammons, both of Cheswold DE; five grandchildren; three brothers-in-law, Willis Johnson of Cheswold DE, William Moodie, New York City and Rev William H Ridgway of Dover; three sisters-in-law, Ola Ridgway and Elizabeth Ridgway, both of Bridgeton NJ and Beatrice Ridgway of Dover DE and a large number of nephews, nieces, other relatives and friends.
