PRICE-Richard Charles Roedel, affectionately known to all as "Uncle Charlie", passed away Nov. 16, 2011 after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 58. He was born Nov. 13, 1953 in Price, Utah to George and Mary Melo Roedel. On March 13, 1976, he married Janet Marx in Price.

Charlie was a man of many hats and he worked in various fields over the years. His earlier years were spent working construction at the Hunter and Huntington Power Plants and later employed with WW Clyde on the railroad. In March of 1988, Charlie and his wife opened Charlie's Pawn where they were blessed with a very successful business that was only exceeded by the number of friendships they gained.

Charlie was very patriotic and in 1971 he enlisted in the Utah National Guard. He enjoyed many outdoor activities including hunting, waterskiing, and horse back riding. Family was everything to him and he was definitely a big part of the family reunions. Charlie had a special way of making everyone feel included and no one will every be able to fill his boots.

Charlie was the type of person who would give the shirt off his back and never ask for anything in return. He had a big heart and would go out of his way to help anyone in need, including strangers. He lived a very humble life that was devoted to his family and friends.

Survived by his wife, Janet Roedel, Price; sisters, Georgia Huckins, Moab; Louise (John) Knieb, Golden Valley, Ariz.; brother, Bill (Debbie) Roedel, Golden Valley, Ariz.; his girls, Dusti and Kierra Dennis, Price; his little buddy, Preston Melo; his angel baby, Meme Melo; many extended family members and many loving nieces and nephews.
