STILWELL — Graveside services for Charles “Junior” Dreadfulwater will be held Friday, Nov. 8, 2013, at the Park Hill Cemetery with Pastor David Cook officiating.

Charles Dreadfulwater, the son of Charlie W. and Georgia (Cochran) Dreadfulwater, was born Jan. 12, 1944, in Tahlequah, Okla., and departed this life on Monday, Nov. 4, 2013 in Tahlequah, Okla., at the age of 69 years, 9 months and 23 days.

Charles was a good-hearted man who enjoyed life and would do anything for anybody. He loved his children and enjoyed the years he had with them.

Charles was a “shade tree” mechanic and enjoyed fixing cars. He enjoyed fishing, drinking coffee and talking, once he got to know you. He was very quiet until he got to know you.

He attended the Chilocco Indian School growing up. Charles touched many lives and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
