Charles Henry Keleman Jr. suddenly went to be with the Lord on April 30, 2008 at the University of Texas Medical Branch, surrounded by family and friends.
Charlie was born August 23, 1960 to Charles Keleman Sr. and Marian Myers. He was a loving son, husband and father. Charlie attended Galveston and Santa Fe public schools and was a BOI and lifelong resident of Galveston. Charlie was a carpenter who could make anything out of wood and who could fix anything. He was also very skilled in remodeling historic homes including the Moody Mansion. He will be remembered by those who knew him for his great barbecues and loud music. He spent many hours and days fishing and boating on the Bayou. It was quite common for Charlie to cook extra food when he barbecued and give some to those he knew needed it. He had a loving and giving heart and would give of himself and what he had to those he loved and those around him.
He is preceded in death by grandparents, B.L. and Susie Myers and by his mother, Marian Helen Myers.
He is survived by his wife, Patricia K. Keleman; two children, son, Charles H. Keleman III, and daughter, Christal M. Keleman; his father, Charles H. Keleman Sr. and wife, Shirley; two brothers, Kenneth W. Keleman and Joseph L. Keleman; various aunts uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and many, many friends.
A memorial service will be held on Monday May 5, 2008 with visitation at 5 PM and a service at 6:30 PM at Malloy & Son Funeral Home with the Rev. Herb Polinard officiating.
