  • Dr. Charles Grandison Charlie Mead 1933-2009

    West Roane County Volunteer Fire Department is deeply sorrowed by the passing of our dear friend Dr. Charles Grandison Charlie Mead (1933-2009). He passed away peacefully at home on Monday morning, June 22, 2009, at 2:58 AM.

    In accordance with Charlie's wishes, his body has been sent to the University of Tennessee Forensic Research Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. Research was very important to Charlie.

    Charlie Mead was a good friend and neighbor, a tireless volunteer and board chairman, and a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He will be greatly missed.

    The family will be receiving friends at the West Roane VFD Station No. 1 at 1303 Pumphouse Road in Rockwood, Tennessee, on Monday, June 29, 2009, from 5:30 to 7:30 PM, followed by a memorial service at 7:30 PM, also at Station No. 1. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Charlie's memory to the WRCVFD at PO Box 417, Rockwood, TN 38754.

    More information is available on his obituary page here at WestRoane.com and in the OakRidger, Knoxville News Sentinel, and Duluth News Tribune newspapers.
