It is with the heaviest of hearts, we announce that our beloved father and grandfather, Charles Taggart Crompton, age 83, of Clayton, Georgia, passed away peacefully on March 22, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.
Charles was born the son of the late, William James Crompton and Elsie Taggart Crompton, on March 13, 1936, in Philadelphia Pa. He will always be remembered as a devoted father, grandfather and husband. He cherished his family above all else, and we will miss his easy smile, loving heart, infectious sense of humor and love of storytelling. Throughout his life, Charles remained a close friend to many, and he loved dearly his wide circle of friends and his caregivers at Traces of Tiger. Everyone who knew him, will remember him as an avid sports fan, and can recall his happiness when the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl. His absence will be felt each day, and made easier only in the knowledge that he is now at rest with his beloved wife.
In addition to his parents, Charles was preceded in death by the love of his life, his wife Judith Crompton, his sisters, Sylvie Ott and Helen Phillips, and his brothers, Wallace and Warren.
He is survived by his beloved children, Jeffrey Thomas Crompton and his daughter Elizabeth Ann Crompton, his four grandchildren, Alixandra Crompton, Michael Crompton, Tyler Sutton and Hunter Sutton, his daughter in law, Tina, and many extended family members.
The family will receive friends on Friday, April 5, 2019 from 1pm to 2pm at St James Episcopal Church in Clayton, Georgia.
