Charles Lusby

Charles Richard Lusby, 89, of Woodlawn, died 8:05 p.m. Thursday, June 5, 2014, at Nature Trail Health Care Center in Mt. Vernon with his family by his side.

He was born Friday, Jan. 30, 1925, in Woodlawn, the son of Joseph and Bernice Elizabeth (Jackson) Lusby. He married Betty Rose Moore on June 3, 1946, in Woodlawn.

A lifelong resident of Woodlawn and proud Marine, he enlisted on March 5, 1943, and served as an aircraft armorer sergeant in the Southwest Pacific Area, participated in the Bismarck Archipelago Operation and in the Philippine Island Campaign during World War II until his discharge on Feb. 5, 1946. He first worked for Starr Brothers Dairy and L&N Railroad. In 1983, he retired as a teamster after driving a semi-truck for Montgomery Ward for 31 years. An avid outdoorsman, he passed his love of hunting and fishing on to his children and grandchildren. He spent his retirement fishing, especially enjoying his time fishing with his wife on their trips to Toledo Bend Lake in Louisiana. He also loved to travel, taking many trips out west. His family was his life and he was always there to help any of them in any way at any time.

He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Betty Rose Lusby of Woodlawn. Left with many loving memories of their dad are his children, Mike and Marilyn Lusby of Mt. Vernon, Dan and Brenda Lusby of Woodlawn, David and Jacque Lusby of Granite City and Sandi and Jerry Brown of Mt. Vernon. He will be remembered as a loving grandpa by his grandchildren, Tammy and Jamie Lane, Kevin and Julie Lusby, Brian and Jennifer Lusby, Jason Lusby and Cindy Ward, Kelley and Clint Taylor, Jacob and Kendra Lusby, Jesse Lusby, Jennifer and Brett Anderson and Jerod Brown; and great-grandchildren, Kody, Kory, and Kortnie Lane, Emily and Madalyn Lusby, Jordan and Jamie Lusby, Tucker and Taytum Taylor, Wyatt Lusby and Colton and Connor Anderson. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.
