Charles R. Whiteside


Charles R. Whiteside, 83, passed away April 11, 2015, born Dec. 1, 1931. Born in Hancock County, Indiana, and graduate of Warren Central High School, Indianapolis.

He served his country in the Navy during the Korean War.

Survived by sisters Katherine Whiteside Allen of Iowa City, Iowa, Ruthemma Whiteside of Indianapolis, and Alberta Gardner, New Castle, Indiana, including several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He is predeceased by Richard and Almeda Whiteside and 4 siblings.

Charlie was a pleasure to take care of as he was mild mannered, had a sense of humor, smiled often, and all the care givers loved him.  He will be missed.

No services were conducted as he was a progressive thinker and had his body donated to science on behalf of Indiana University Anatomical Education Program, I.U. School of Medicine.

Family will remember Charles and others lost these past few years; expect a small service at the next Family Reunion scheduled later this year.

Private arrangements were entrusted to Simplicity Funeral & Cremation Care, Indianapolis. You may view Charles’ complete obituary and leave condolences for the family at
