Charles "Ox" Carson

Charles "Ox" Carson, 69, of Belle Center, passed away Thursday, March 8 at home surrounded by his loving family after a brave battle with leukemia.

He was born on June 24, 1948 in Kenton to the late Carl and Eva (Dughman) Carson.

He is survived by his wife, Brenda (Shadley) Carson, daughters, Kari (David) DeLano of Ayersville, Kae Lynn (T.J.) Lyden of Belle Center, and a stepson, Eric (Lindsay) Oldham of Kenton, mother-in-law, Dorothy Shadley.

He was the proud grandfather to Luke and Abe DeLano, Carson and Carter Lyden, and Olivia Oldham. Also surviving are his loving and supportive siblings, Carl (Sonny) Carson of Grayson, KY, John (Diane) Carson of Kenton, a sister-in-law, Anita Carson of Mayberry, Peg (Bob) Cronley, of Hilliard, Jean, (Joe) Kearns of Kenton, Robert "Kit" (Linda) Carson of Kenton, Kathy Beair, of Lakeview, and Richard "Dick" (Bev) Carson also of Kenton, sister-in-law, Gloria (Gary) Grappy of Kenton, and brother-in-law, Kim (Kate) Shadley of Peoria, IL.

Preceding him in death are his wife, Peggy (Schmidt) Carson, a brother, Edward Carson, and his father-in-law, Willis Shadley.

He loved being an uncle to his many nieces and nephews, and they all agree that he was a wonderful uncle. His greatest joy in life was spending time with his family and watching his grandchildren at their many sporting events. He loved to golf, travel, and have fun with his many faithful friends.

He was a proud 1967 graduate of Belle Center High School, where he excelled at playing football for his beloved Belle Center Eagles. He was employed at Northwood Stone and Asphalt/Shelley Company for 51 loyal years. He was an active member of Belle Center United Methodist Church. A veteran of the U.S. Army, he served in Vietnam from 1968 to 1969. He was a member of the Kenton Elks Lodge #157, the Kenton Moose Family Center #428, and he was a Hardin County Shriner.

Although well known for his size, he was most loved for his generous spirit and kind heart. He’ll be sadly missed by all who were lucky enough to have him in their lives.
