Charlie J. Jackson Sr.

Charlie J. Jackson Sr., 86, of Sandusky, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday January 12, 2016 at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio, after a brief illness.

He was born on March 26, 1929 in Burkville, Alabama to the late Johnny & Dynah (Davis) Jackson.

In 1951 he enlisted in the United States Army where he fought in the Korean War as a Sergeant, and earned a Purple Heart for the battle that was put before him.

On March 26, 1955 he married Mattie J. Frazier, and relocated to Sandusky in 1957.

He became a member of the Providence Missionary Baptist Church where he accepted Christ as his personal Savior under the late Reverend Eddie Brown, and was a member of the male chorus.

He was employed for 32 years at Sandusky Dressed Beef Company, where he retired in 1992.

Mr. Jackson loved his family near and far, he met no strangers, and always made you feel welcome. He was known for his garden, where he grew the most beautiful collard greens. He loved to Bar-B-Que and to have family gatherings where he shared his knowledge and wisdom about life. He would tell jokes where it would leave one speechless.

He leaves to cherish his memory, sons, Andrew (Yvonnjanai) Frazier, Sandusky, Charles Jackson Jr., Marietta, GA, Richard Earl Jackson, Donnell Jackson, and Paul Allen Jackson, all of Sandusky; daughters, Lena Mae (Johnnie) Patrick, Montgomery, AL, Betty Jean (Harvey) Nicholson, Mattie Pearl Jackson, both of Sandusky, and Elizabeth Jackson, Columbus, OH.; sister, Velma Jackson, Sandusky; brothers, Willie Jackson and Starlin Jackson, both of Sandusky; special daughter-in-law, Doris J. Frazier; a host of grandchildren; great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews; special friends, Jimmy Harvey, Ronnie Aaron, Tyrone Fenderson, and James Hayes.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Mattie J. Jackson; daughters, Shirley Ann and Pauline Jackson; his parents; brothers, Willie Frank and Johnny Jackson Jr.; sisters, Bernice Williams, Louise Duncan, and Johnnie Mae Smith; grandchildren, Doris Marie Frazier and Michael Shawn Frazier.

Friends may call on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 from 6-8 P.M. in Toft Funeral Home & Crematory, 2001 Columbus Ave., Sandusky. Friends may also call on Wednesday from 10 A.M. until time of funeral services at 12 P.M. Noon in Providence Missionary Baptist Church, 224 Dixie Ave., Sandusky. Dr. Scottie Aaron will officiate.
