Charles "Cup" Compton

October 9, 1943 — November 4, 2017

Charles Edward “Cup” Compton, 74, went home to be with the Lord at his home November 4, 2017. He was born October 9, 1943 in Corydon, KY to James C. Compton and Addie Suggs Harris.

Cup accepted Christ at an early age at the Methodist church in Corydon, KY. He was a veteran of the United States Army.

He retired from General Foods as a mixer where he was well known. He was a good father, brother, grandfather, family member and friend. Cup always loved being in the company of people and having discussions. As a member of the Blackjack Motorcycle Club, he was known for his chopper bike. He also loved fishing, cowboy movies, and of course, the race track. He would send his bets over when he couldn't make it and hear the results from his family. Cup has many grandkids and gave each of them a nickname to help him remember who they were. He was loved by all and truly will be missed by family and friends.

Charles is preceded in death by his wife: Barbara Jean Compton; mother: Addie Suggs Harris; father: James C. Compton; stepfather: Nathaniel Harris; brothers: Everett Eugene, James T. and William Glen Compton.

Charles will be lovingly remembered by his children: Michael Cooksey, Enzio (Trina), Rosalyn, Demetris, Marion (Torre), LaDonna, Thendis R., Karlotta and Darlotta Compton; brothers: George Compton (Jessie), Jackie Compton, Johnny Compton, and Ricky Harris; sisters: Carolyn Bolden, Martha Sue Foster, Eunice Rhodes, Doris Taylor, Mona Lisa Harris; grandchildren; great grandchildren and a host of extended family and friends.
