Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Charles “Charlie” Rothrock, 72, Raytown, Mo passed away Sept. 25, 2019. Charlie is survived by his wife Judy, 4 children and 7 grandchildren. A memorial service will be held 11 AM, Wed. Oct. 9, 2019 at Community of Christ Church, 6231 Manning Ave. Raytown, Mo 64133.
Charlie was married to his best friend of 48 years, Judy. Their journey started with the purchase of a car between two dads. Judy’s dad (Charles Madden) did not want her to get engaged to this other guy so he convinced Charlie to take his daughter on a date. And fate blossomed from there.
Together they shared their love for life in Hawaii. After 10 years fate would step in once again because Charlie believed family was about love, not who you are born to. And unmeasurable love he gave to his 4 children; Jeshua, Melissa, Barbara, and Christopher. Charlie was also a wonderful Papa to his 7 grandchildren; Chase, Cole, Jacob, Evie, Charlie Marie, Adalie, and Savannah.
Charlie taught us family is everything and he leaves a legacy behind that you stick by your loved ones, even in hard times. We are stronger together then alone. Charlie’s soul will always be with us.
