Obituary for Charles T. Sprague

Charles Theodore Sprague, 88, of Bradford, passed away on Monday, March 11, 2019 at the Sena Kean Manor, Smethport.

Born August 6, 1930 in Bradford, he was the son of Jesse Elmer and Anna Elizabeth Neiger Sprague.

On September 16, 1950 he married Donna Jean Dittman in the West Branch United Methodist Church, Bradford.

Mr. Sprague graduated from the Bradford Area High School in 1948.

He was employed by the former Kendall Refining Co., in the 1950’s and later employed by Pennsylvania Electric Co. from which he retired in 1992 after thirty seven years of service.

He belonged to the West Branch United Methodist Church; where he served as head usher and had been involved with the trustees. Charles was an avid outdoorsman who loved being out in nature whether it was hunting, fishing or bird watching; which he did all throughout his life. He became so experienced with the birds that he could tell you what bird it was from seeing it or even just hearing it sing.

Surviving in addition to his wife of 68 years, Donna Sprague of Bradford is one son, Howard Eugene (Cynthia) Sprague of New Hampshire; one daughter, Susan Marie Sprague of North Carolina, six granddaughters, Jennie Petruney (Amos) Pedersen and Tricia Petruney (Jeff) Strope of North Carolina, Melanie (Ryan) North of Florida, Alycia (Joe) D’Isidoro of New Hampshire, Elsa and Mara Sprague of Bradford; two great grandsons, Beckett & Calder Pedersen of North Carolina; three sisters, Mary Jean Sprague and Carolyn Jarrett of Bradford and Geraldine Aszbach of Virginia and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, one son, Marlan Lee Sprague and three brothers, Sgt. Howard Sprague, James Sprague and Walter Sprague.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2019 from 3:00 to 4:00 PM at the West Branch United Methodist Church with a memorial service to immediately follow at 4:00 PM at the church with the Rev. Matthew Blake officiating.
