Charles Leo Otto, 84, of Bryan, Texas, passed from Earth into Heaven with his family by his side on Tuesday, February 27, 2018.
Charles was born November 9, 1933, in Groesbeck, Texas to Leo Emmet and Bonnie Beecher (Webb) Otto. He graduated from Groesbeck High School in 1951 and from Texas A&M University in 1955. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy from 1955 to 1961. He worked for the City of College Station for 20 years from which he retired. Charles married his soulmate, the late Shellie Warner, on January 31, 1997 in Bryan.
In his retirement years, he spent his time enjoying the things he loved the most. He loved the simple life, outdoors, sunsets, riding horses, watching hummingbirds, reading novels, journaling his thoughts, and spending time with his family and friends, and his dog, Bigun.
Charles was a firm believer in Jesus and in prayer. He clung to the words which he learned as a child in Sunday School, “God is love; Love is God.”
Charles is survived by his daughter, Tanna Telligman, and her husband Tra of Dallas, Texas. He is preceded in his transition to Heaven by his parents, Leo and Beecher Otto, and his wife, Shellie (Warner) Otto.Print This Obituary
