Charles Souers, of Bloomington, died Monday, December 8, 2008, at Golden Living Center in Bloomington at the age of 92.

He was born September 30, 1916, in Murphysboro, IL. After graduating from high school in Johnston City, IL, he worked as a radio and radar repairman at Olmstead Field in Middletown, PA, where he met the love of his life, Lorraine Clouser. They were married on September 1, 1944, in Shreveport, LA.

During World War II he served in the 599th Engineers as a radio repairman. When he returned from the war he attended Valparaiso Technical Institute in Valparaiso, IN. After graduation he accepted a job with Sarkes Tarzian, where he worked as an engineer at the Bloomington radio station and as a cameraman for then-Bloomington-based WTTV Channel 4.

Charles' main occupation, and the one for which he will be most remembered, was as a teacher. Teaching was his great passion in life and he loved his students. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and taught science and math to students at University Junior High School from 1958 until his retirement in 1983. While teaching school he continued his education, receiving a Master of Science degree in Education in 1960 and a Doctor of Education in 1972.
