CHARLES 0. "CHARLIE"
MCCANTS SR.
1926-2007


Charles 0. "Charlie" McCants Sr. slipped into eternity Thursday November 8, 2007 after a yearlong illness, which he courageously battled.
Born in Bellview Alabama on January 4th 1926, Mr. McCants was preceded in death by his wife, Betty Joyce Ammons McCants, the love of his life and wife of 48 years.
He was a loving Father to Janie (Wilks) Turney, Pam (Grover) Bailey and Chuck (Connie) McCants; Grandfather to Stephanie (Grey) Burge, Josh Turney (Heather Williams), Allison (Jase) Graves, Jaclyn (Richard) Hines, Jackson Bailey, Lana McCants, Paige Turney (Chris Martin), Christina McCants, Chloe' McCants and Christian McCants; Great-Grandfather to Baylin Mann, Reagan Hines, Sydney Burge, Miles Turner, Grant Graves, Ashlyn Hines, Benjamin Burge and Roxy Martin.
The youngest of ten children Mr. McCants and his family moved to Pensacola when he was 8 and settled in the East Hill area. As a child he was a member of Bell's Landing Presbyterian Church in Monroe County Alabama; McIlwain Presbyterian Church for many years and Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in his later years. A graduate of Pensacola High School class of 44 he attended the University of Florida where he was a member of the Florida basketball team. A lifelong Florida Gator, he was a loving, devoted, and committed husband, father and grandfather to his family, and faithful to his many lifelong friends. There was never a time when he thought about himself. He always put the needs of others first. His business career included 9 years as an employee of the Coca-Cola Company and 29 years with Liberty National Life Insurance Company where he worked as a salesman and Associate Manager.
The greatest joy of his life was having his family around him. He loved all of his family and was particularly fond of his grandchildren and great grandchildren. They were the light in his life.
Charlie McCants was a blessed man and shared his blessings with many. He loved God and was loved by his family and friends. He will be extremely missed but well remembered for his loving, caring and giving nature.
