Charles Edward Urie

Charlie lost his battle to a terminal illness on November 29, 2014.  He was born April 21, 1951 in Baltimore, Maryland to Albert (deceased) and Helen Urie (Phillips).  They moved to Canon City, CO in 1966 and he graduated from Canon City High School in 1969.  He spent many years working for DFC Ceramics before moving to Illinois.  Charlie was married to Marilyn Duran of Canon City for many years and they were blessed with two sons, Jason (IL) and Dax (FL) Urie who gave them five grandchildren to love.  A sister, Carole Langlois (Penrose, CO), and two brothers, Richard (WA), and Darrin (OR) Urie also survive him, as does his girlfriend of many years, Yvette Durrette, who nursed him and stayed by his side till he fell asleep in Jesus arms.

Charlie had many wonderful talents.  One most people know about here is his beautiful art work.  He also had the ability to play any instrument by ear or note and was in a band for many years.  He enjoyed riding his motorcycle, loved fishing, and adored his Mama. His wonderful sense of humor and his hardy laugh will remain with us forever.  His sister Carole will be having a Celebration of Life get together this summer for him.  There will be an announcement about it later and all who knew him will be welcome.   Charlie you were much loved and will be greatly missed!  Rest in Peace!
