Charles Reinheart Keown, 79, passed away at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo on Friday, June 19, 2020. Born October 10, 1940, in Millwood, KY, he was the son of the late Roy Keown and the late Virginia Faulkeson Keown. He was retired after many years as a car salesman, and was a member of Way of the Cross Church of the Nazarene. In 1965, he married the former Sandra Fleming, and they have spent 55 wonderful years together. He enjoyed fishing and cooking. Mostly, Charles just loved to be sitting around the table at Nancy’s for breakfast and just talking with everybody. He was kind of a jack of all trades, and could tell you all about cars, from mechanic work to upholstery. He was a genuinely nice person, and very friendly to everyone he was around. He loved his family very much, and they will miss him deeply, but his memory will be cherished forever in their hearts.
Pryor Funeral Home has the honor in serving the Keown family.
A funeral service celebrating his life will be held Sunday, June 21, 2020 at 2:00pm at Pryor Funeral Home. There will also be a visitation on Saturday, June 20, 2020 from 5:00pm until 7:00pm at the funeral home. Bro. Jim Vance and Bro. Mike Whitten will be officiating. Interment will follow at Oak Springs Cemetery.
Pallbearers will be Bradley Fletcher, Ryan Chrestman, Brandon Fletcher, Eric Logan, Bryan Hughes, and Charles Voyles.
Honorary pallbearers will be Felix Hubbard, Heath Parker, Alan West, Billy Parker, and Kenneth Parker.
He leaves behind his wife of 55 years, Sandra Fleming Keown; two daughters, Lisa Chrestman of Derma and Neda Rivera of Calhoun City; 4 brothers, Dee Keown and wife Peg of Clarkson, KY, Robbie Keown and wife Jennifer of Leitchfield, KY; 2 sisters, Shirley Sauceman and husband Jeff and Stella Newton and husband Fairley both of Leitchfield, KY; grandchildren, Heather Mabry (Hailey Tedder) of Calhoun City, Elvie Joe Keown, Jr of Bruce, Ryan (Nikki) Chrestman of Olive Branch, Kayla (Eric) Logan of Calhoun City, Bradley (Brandy) of Eva, AL, and Brandon Fletcher of Calhoun City; great-grandchildren, Landon Fletcher, Bradley Kyle Fletcher, Harlan Logan, Swayze Logan, and Kylee Fletcher.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his son, Elvie Joe Keown, and brothers, Roy Junior Keown, Jerry Keown, and Virgil Keown
