Charles Ernest Robeson, 72, passed away from a heart condition while fishing on Indian Creek on Friday, Sept. 1, 2017. Born in Ander- son, Mo., to Charles Anderson Robeson and Myrtle Joyce (Spencer) Robeson, he was a lifelong resident of Anderson and loved that his hometown felt like a large family.
Affectionately called “Papa” to his grandchildren, whom he couldn’t be more proud of and loved showing them off every chance he got. He was truly one of a kind and never met a stranger. He loved fishing, hunting, music, playing guitar, gardening and most of all, being with his family and friends. He was a dedicated member of New Bethel Church, was passionate about his faith and greatly valued his church community.
He is survived by his wife and best friend, Sue “Susie” Robeson. They shared a life together for 39 years and enjoyed dancing, singing and fishing together. They not only depended on each other, but they also enjoyed each other’s company. The two spent at least one night a week with their group of friends singing karaoke and sharing laughs.
He was survived by his son, Andy Robeson and wife, Clare, of Carthage, Mo.; and daughters, Angie Williams and husband, Zeb, of Anderson, Tina Kernell and husband, Russ, of Smithville, Tenn; four stepdaughters, Tammy Samuels, Misty Curtis, Lori Scott and Christy Johnson. He was also survived by six siblings: Frances Myers, Mary Ann Thurman, Mildred Joyce Wilson, Ethel Harrah, Eva Harris and Larry Robeson; 18 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.
