Charles Edward Pinkerton

Charles Edward Pinkerton, 85, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away Saturday, January 29, 2022 at CarePartners Hospice Solace Center.

 

He was born in Buncombe County on November 18, 1936 to the late Claude and Bertha Pinkerton. He is also preceded in death by a sister-in-law, Reba Pinkerton.

 

Charles was a supervisor at Leviton Manufacturing for many years. He was a member of Clinchfield United Methodist Church where he served as a lay speaker. A loving and funny man, Charles will be remembered for his jokes and being very comical. He had a true servant’s heart that was evident in his love for people. He would give the shirt off his back to help anyone and once did this to put out a car fire for a stranger. He was also a veteran of the United States Army.

 

He is survived by his wife Barbara Kate Rash Pinkerton; two children, Robin Pinkerton and David Pinkerton; three grandchildren, Hannah Halliburton, Aaron Halliburton, and Cory Kirk; three great grandchildren, Kennedy Wall, Kendall Halliburton, and Khari Wall; and three brothers, Harry Pinkerton of Marion, John Pinkerton of Marion, and Grady Pinkerton of Mississippi.

 

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
