Charles “Charlie” R. Creason, age 79, of Belle passed away Monday, January 16, 2017, at Gasconade Manor Nursing Facility in Owensville.

Charlie was born August 10, 1937, in Graniteville, MO, a son to the late Joseph and Katherine (Gittemeier) Creason.

On February 27, 1960, Charlie was united in marriage to JoAnn Niederer at the St. Theodore Catholic Church in Flint Hill, MO. Jo Ann survives of their home near Belle.

Charlie attended high school in St. Louis and after graduation attended a Technical School where he received his degree as a Machinist. After receiving his degree, Charlie and JoAnn move to the Belle area and have been Belle residents for 50 years. Charlie retired from Modine Manufacturing in Jefferson City.

Charlie enjoyed going out to eat around town and visiting with others. He was a country music lover and a St. Louis Cardinal fan. His greatest love was spending time with his family.
