Charles Lewis Salter, Jr., 88, of Dublin, made a peaceful entrance into his eternal home on September 7, 2019 at 12:15AM. He is now rejoicing with our heavenly Father and walking the streets of gold.
Charles was a true southern gentleman and a friend to all who knew him. He loved sharing stories of his days as a Marine in the Korean War, of which he took great pride in serving his Country. He was also a motorcycle policeman in Florida for a number of years, before starting a career with The New York Times, where he later retired.
Charles was a faithful member of the First Independent Methodist Church in Dublin for many years, having served in many different capacities. He will always be remembered by his church family for his dedication and determination. Even with his health declining in the last few months, he still remained steadfast in his attendance.
Charles was born on September 3, 1931 to Charles L. Salter, Sr. and Jewell Salter, whom preceded him in death. He is survived by one son, Michael Salter; granddaughter, Whitney Spurlin; grandson, Little Mike Chavez, all of Athens, loving cousins, Ray and (Helen) Evans, of Dublin, and his loving First Independent Methodist Church Family.
Services for Mr. Salter will be held at 11:00AM at the Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Milledgeville, Georgia on Wednesday, September 11, 2019. Brother Brad Sanders will officiate.
In lieu of flowers, the family requested that donations be made to your favorite charity.
