Surviving him are a cousin, Marilyn Miller and many other loving cousins in several states; two nephews, Steve and Mark Perry and families, two great nieces Julie and Jennifer and families, and several close friends whom he considered family.
He grew up on a farm in the Sabbath Home Community, and attended 1st through 4th grade at the Mt. Zion rural school. Upon that closing , he went on to complete his education in Brashear, graduating in 1968. C.A. was a member of the Fairview 4-H Club and especially enjoyed showing rabbits at the fair in Kirksville.

Although his health was declining over the last few years, he still enjoyed going to auctions, cooking, family dinners, and playing cards with friends. C.A. was a generous and fun loving soul who was sharp witted and was eager to remind others of the “good old days” the rest of us had forgotten. He was a person who would always do what he could to be participative and supportive of others. Also, very important in his life, were his devoted guard dogs, “E.T.” and Ginger.”
