December 13, 1935 — August 14, 2023

Charles “Charlie” Roscoe Harold,  Jr., 87, of Roanoke, passed away on Monday, August 14, 2023 at his home.

Charlie was born December 13, 1935 in Monterey, Virginia to the late Daisy Enid (Hull) and Charles R. Harold.  After graduating from Highland High School, Charlie worked as an electrical engineer in Northern Virginia and eventually settled in Fredericksburg, where he and his wife, Jeanne raised their three daughters.  He retired from the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, Virginia after 27 years of service in 1994.  Always a country boy at heart, Charlie loved bluegrass and classical music and was an avid gardener.  He would often return with his family to Highland County for visits and to give his girls an appreciation of the mountains and country life.  He was also a talented furniture restorer and woodworker.   Charlie was a faithful man who loved the Lord, his family, and his many friends from church, work, and the community.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brothers, Lee Glen Harold, Warren “Mike” Gray Herold, Jack Hull Herold; his sisters, Margaret Ann Rexrode, Mamie Kale Eagle, Alma Jean Harmon, Ellen Sue Puffenbarger, and his oldest daughter, Vonda Kaye Heflin. 

He is survived by his daughters Christie “Enid" Glancy and Karai Janel Simpson; along with five grandchildren, Ashley Nicole Meyers, Greyson Lee Harold, Hollis Paige Glancy, Julian Asher Simpson and Charlize Vonne “Charlie” Simpson.

A graveside memorial service will be held 11a.m., Monday, August 21, 2023 in Monterey Cemetery.  Following the service family and friends will gather for a time of fellowship with refreshments at the Blue Grass Ruritan Club.
