Charles E Ward, 72 gained his wings and joined the Lord on Sunday June 14, 2020. He was born in Birmingham, AL to Helen Ward.

Charles was born and raised in Birmingham, but spent the majority of his life in Columbus, Ohio after relocating there in the mid-sixties. Shortly after, he met the love of his life, Purtina. They were married on November 24, 1969 and had 3 children.

Charles was a very loving and caring man that loved ALL of his family more than anything. He literally traveled the world to many places just to visit or be in the company of his loved ones. He was the kind of person that would always help out those in need, even when he was in need himself. His wonderful sense of humor and love of life made everyone who knew him, adore him and always want to be in his presence. He was very loved.

He was preceded in death by his mother Helen Ward and grandmother Mandy Ward, siblings: Bernice Reeves, Thelma Mitchell, Martha Rose Ward, Juanita Carter and his grandson Jalen Ward.

Charles will be greatly missed by his loving wife Purtina Ward, daughter Ursula Ward, 3 sons; Maureus Ward, Lamont Ward, Jamey Hannah, 6 grandchildren; Simone, Malik, Mikeal, Markus, Reyvin, Morgan, 2 great-grandchildren; Niyanna and Iyla, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

    I haven’t seen Charles for years. I met Charles when I worked at Lazarus downtown. We had lots of laughs. After working with him we lost contact but I did see him some years later with his son Maruis Trontu I think was his name. Very proud papa. My most sincere condolences family.
