Charles Grant Heter died in his home on July 15, 2021. His fight with cancer lasted several years and he was a warrior. Preceding him in death were his parents, Marvin Wood Heter and Marjorie Boyle Heter, as well as 2 older brothers, John and Tom.
Charles was born on June 3, 1948, in Davenport, Iowa. Not long after, his family moved to Mission, Kansas. He spent his childhood and young adulthood there, graduating from Shawnee Mission North High School.
Charles did many things during his life, but he loved carpentry. Fixing broken antique furniture and making his own creations in his shop brought him a great deal of happiness. He was most at home in the shop, listening to KCUR and working on a project. Charles also enjoyed playing pool and listening to music.
Charles is survived by his wife Anne and sons John, Jonas, and Max. Also surviving, are his siblings David, Gracie, and Steve and grandchildren Ben, Hannah, Dominic, Mia, George, and Ellery. He was loved and will be missed by many. He will remain loved, and greatly missed, by the other half of “you twos!”
A celebration of life/get-together/party will be planned in the near future. He would want participants to be safe and healthy. Stay tuned.
