Charles Robert Everhart

Charles Robert Everhart, known to his family as Bob, and to friends as Charlie. You always knew who family was, or friend, by the way they addressed him.

Charlie was born and raised in Canton, KS. He graduated with the class of 1953. After graduation, he joined his brother and father in the oil fields. In 1958 he joined the railroad, where he remained for 39 years before retiring in 1997. Charlie had many accomplishments throughout his career. He served as the local union secretary for many years, was involved with the Shriners, and created the Kansas City Safety Committee.

Charlie’s personal life included a beautiful, blended family. In 1957, he married Rosie, with whom he had two children, Dennis and Terri. In 1970, he married Bernice Staatz. Bernice had two sons, Raymond & Ronald Staatz, who Charlie loved as his own. He resided in Herington for 53 years, where he would tend to his amazing garden, working on various projects, and maintaining a robust train collection. Bob was very mechanically inclined and could fix just about anything. He loved having family around at the holidays and teaching the grandchildren & great grandchildren to play pool in his basement.

Charlie’s best pastime was his home away from home, “the shed”. He worked on all of his many projects here, but more importantly he entertained his family and friends here with plenty of good cheer for all! After retirement, he continued his hobby of gardening, and shared a bountiful harvest with his family & friends each year.

Charlie will be remembered as a hard-working man with a kind and generous heart. His family and friends will miss his physical presence on earth dearly, but the memories he made with his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren will last forever.
