Charles Stockon

Nov 2nd, 1950 - Feb 18th, 2021

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date for family and friends.


     Charles Junior Stockon was born November 2, 1950, in Taylorville, Illinois.  Charles passed away at his home in Clay City on February 18, 2021.  He was one of five children born to Charles H. and Violet I. Stockon.  He married the love of his life, Sherril Lynn on March 15, 1976.  She preceded him in death on September 12, 2018.

     Together they had 3 children of their own: Tanya (Terry) Tackitt of Clay City, Jeremy (Patricia) Stockon of Flora, and Shane Stockon (Rebecca Holcomb) of Mount Vernon.  He also had 3 stepchildren: Corrinna (Bobby) Berning of Cherokee Village, Arkansas, Troy (Tammy) Allen of Xenia, and Dawn (Jamie) Mayberry of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  They had 15 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.

     Charles worked many jobs throughout his life including for himself.  He had many hobbies such as hunting, fishing, playing cards and dice, and mowing grass.  He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. His greatest joy in life was being married to Sherril.

     Charles is survived by all 6 kids, grandchildren, and great grandchildren; sister Ruby Williams, brother Frank (Rose) Stockon, and brother Walter Stockon (Brenda Colclasure) all of Flora; and several nieces and nephews.  He is also survived by his best friend Jack Carter of Fairfield and two fur-babies Chi-Chi and P-Diddle.

     Charles was preceded in death by the Love of his Life, Sherril, in 2018, by his loving Dad in 1993, and Mom in 2000.  He had a niece Tabatha Bissey pass away in 2008, and his youngest sister Sarah Grobengieser in 2010. He was also preceded in death by two former brothers-in-law Bill Williams in 2019 and Steve Grobengieser in 2021, and good friends Rhonda Carter in 2019 and Joyce Bissey in 2013.

     He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date for family and friends.  Frank & Bright Funeral Home in Flora assisted the family with arrangements.  To share a condolence or memory, visit:
