LAUREL — Henry "Charlie" Adcock, 64, of Ellisville, died Thursday, June 23, 2011, at his residence.
Graveside services will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, June 30, at Creek Baptist Church Cemetery in Ovett. Burial will be at Tiger Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. Rev. Colon Rowell will officiate.
He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and was dedicated to his work. He retired from the Marine Corps after 21 years. He served four tours of duty in Vietnam and risked his life along with many others. "Because of our Dad and Brother's sacrifice and all members of each branch of the military all people may continue to live in freedom in this great country of ours."
He was a loving Dad, Brother, Friend, a dedicated business man, and devoted to the health and welfare of all animals. He never met a stranger and he will be greatly missed.
Charlie was preceded in death by his parents, John Willie Adcock and Mary Etta Park Bullock; sister, Daisy Learlene Adcock; nephews, Michael Bazor and James Rowell; and his beloved dog, "Jackson Adcock."
Survivors include daughters, Elizabeth "Liz" Robison, Sada Ford and Erin; brothers, James Donald Adcock, John William Adcock (Mildred); sisters, Yvonne Rowell (Roy), Marlyn Sue Lee (Jerry), Rita Ann Hickson (Tom); grandchildren, Taylor and Jordan; many nieces and nephews, and his best friend, Willie Miller.

Serving as pallbearers will be Lee Rowell, Clint Rowell, Scott Trigg, Alan Rowell, Tim Rowell, Gabe Adcock, Greg Adcock, and Freeman Pope.

3nd Battalion, 9th Marines, 3nd Marines Division. This is noted for being the very first Battalion to land in Viet Nam March 8th, 1965.

Corine Howell, his neighbor, says 64 year old Henry Charlie Adcock was the sweetest neighbor anyone could ask for. He was a man who would help anyone and loved animals.

"The big thing with him is that he always brought them a bucket of chicken to feed his dogs and he always had some for my dogs, so they knew when Mr. Henry was home they was going to get a treat."

You shall cross the barren desert, but you shall not die of thirst.
You shall wander far in safety though you do not know the way.
You shall speak your words in foreign lands and all will understand.
You shall see the face of God and live.
Be not afraid, I go before you always;
Come follow me, and I will give you rest.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a
memory no one can steal.

If you could see me now you wouldn't shed a tear, Though you may not understand why I'm no longer there. Remember my spirit, that is the real me because I'm still very much alive, I've just been set free. Oh, if you could only see!

Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.

Arthur Schopenhauer
