Charlie always had a smile and a friendly word.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 57 years, Elsie, in June 1978; a son, Jackie Dement, in infancy; and five grandchildren, Rocky Joe Dement, Dean Dement, Guy Meyer, Rose Marie Soppe and Connie Dement.

The Dement family would like to extend their thanks to the Dubuque Nursing and Rehab staff, Dr. Luke Dolan and Hospice of Dubuque for their care and concern for Charlie.

We will never forget the twinkle in your eye. God bless you, Charlie.
