Charles is survived by two daughters, Rebekah S. (Carl W.) Helman of Chambersburg and Barbara P. (Ronald C., II) Sisto of Dover; granddaughter, Paris A. (Ryan C.) Egolf of Chambersburg; two grandsons, Jesse E. Helman of Chambersburg and C. Josiah Sisto of Dover; sister, Joan Swanger of Mohnton; half-sister, Martha L. Bistline of Shippensburg; half-brother, Warren L. Bistline of Milford, OH; and several nieces and nephews.
