HAMPTON - Charles H. Shotwell Jr., a.k.a. Charlie and Papa Shottie, born July 20, 1937, was called home to be with the Lord on April 17, 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer. Charlie was a member of the Hampton High School Class of 1956. "Mercy!" An Army veteran, he served from 1960 to 1963, during which time he was stationed in Germany. A Master Plumber, he retired after 38 years with Newsome Mechanical Contractors and went on to work part-time at the Hampton Sheriff's Department.

A lifelong resident of Hampton, Charlie was a member of Phoebus Baptist Church and volunteered as an Auxiliary Deputy with the Hampton Sheriff's Department. He enjoyed baseball, softball, traveling to see his grandchildren, and spending quality time with his friends and family, especially his "kitten."

He is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Elaine; mother, Marjorie Reid Shotwell; son, James Thomas Shotwell and his wife, Ann Marie; daughter, Deborah Ann Thomason and her husband, Brian; sister, Marjorie Hurlburt and her husband, Vaughan; grandchildren, Megan and Thomas Shotwell, Madeline, Mackenzie, Mallory, and Brian III Thomason; extended family members and special friends.

The family will receive friends from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 21, 2009, at R. Hayden Smith Funeral Home, Hampton, with funeral services at 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 22, 2009, at Restoration Church Phoebus Baptist. Pastor David L. Bounds and Pastor Leonard D. Riley will officiate. Burial will follow in Hampton Memorial Gardens.
