Charlie Raper Memorial Fund

One of the hardest things I’ve ever had to say.. Charles Earl Raper Jr, my father and best friend, passed away from a massive heart attack last night - January 18th, 2018. He was a retired Air Force veteran at 53, and it came as an unexpected shock to all of us. He’ll always be remember by his wife, two daughters, two grandsons, and of course all the friends he’s made through his years with his gift of gab.

He was the type of person that lit up the room with a smile. Always positive and energized. He was willing to try anything, and lived life to the fullest. Joking till the end he will be deeply deeply missed, but his cheerful influence will never be forgotten.

The expenses that come with such a heavy lost can be overwhelming. This memorial fund is set up in his honor to help his family during this tragic time. Any kind words, donations, or prayers would be a great help. Please keep Charlie and his family in your prayers and thoughts as they mourn the tragic loss of this amazing, wonderful husband, father, papa, and friend.

He is extremely missed.
With love,
Courtney, Kristinha, and Jackie Raper
