Charles E. Medlin

Posted By Hall-Wynne On May 16, 2009 @ 12:00 am In Obituaries | No Comments

Charles Edward Medlin, age 66 and resident of Durham, entered into eternal rest on May 16, 2009 while at the beach. Born in Franklin County, he was the son of Annie Bell Morrison and the late John David Medlin. A graduate of Chowan College, Charles was a sales associate with Triangle Communications.
He was a member of Duke Memorial United Methodist Church and the Open Door Sunday School Class.

Charlie lived each and every day to the fullest with lots of spunk and energy. He loved going to work and kept on working even after “retirement.” He could talk to anyone which in turn brought him an array of friends at church, his neighborhood, his clients in the printing business, and many more. He enjoyed spending his weekends working in the yard, relaxing at his beach house at Ocean Isle, NC, watching Duke play basketball, and spending time with his grandchildren. You could find “Gramps” on the floor playing trains, in the yard playing baseball or football, and even riding the thrill rides at Walt Disney World. His smile and his love of life will be missed by all that knew him.

Surviving are his wife, Catherine Noell Medlin; a daughter, Lynn Marie Medlin of Hampton, VA; three sons, Joseph Keith Medlin and wife, Michelle of Clayton, John Heith Medlin and wife, Kelly of Graham and Mark Noell Medlin and wife Caroline of Greensboro, his mother, Annie Bell Morrison of Wake County; one sister, Marie Baker of Raleigh ; one brother, John David Medlin, Jr. of Raleigh; six grandchildren, Calli, Johnathan and Carter Medlin, Aaron and Ashley Lanphere and Shelby Medlin.

A Memorial Service will be held 3 PM Wednesday, May 20, 2009 at Duke Memorial United Methodist Church. The Reverends Roger Owens and Ginger Thomas will preside. Burial will be in Maplewood Cemetery.

Visitation will be held Tuesday from 6 to 8 PM at Hall-Wynne Funeral Home.

Flowers are acceptable or memorials may be made to Duke Memorial United Methodist Church, 504 W. Chapel Hill Street, Durham, NC 27701 or the American Heart Association, 7272 Greenville Avenue, Dallas, TX 75231-4596.

Hi Catherine and Family,
I worked for Charlie when you owned Medlin Graphics and later Charlie and I worked at Duke Publication Group together. I was so sad to hear of Charlie’s passing. Charlie was a joy to be around; he always knew how to keep things stirred up smile,one could always expect a smile on his face and a positive word. Charlie was a good man. I learned a great deal from him and was proud to call him friend. Just wanted you to know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Catherine and Family,
I have been blessed to have know Charlie a number of years as a business acquaintance, fellow member of Open Door Class at Duke Memorial, as a friend and as a fellow Duke supporter. I can see Charlie now particularly after Duke won. He was a great Duke fan and a great personal friend. We will miss him but never forget him.

Best to all of you.
Ed Hammond

To Catherine & Family along with all who knew and Loved Charlie . . .

“A Friend Worth Having” best describes Charles Medlin.

Charlie and I go back to 1959 as classmates at Broughton High in Raleigh.
Whenever he entered a room, the place would light up. He was the most charitable guy I knew, always doing something to help others.
You simply couldn’t have a better friend than Charlie Medlin.

Honest, Bright, Hard Working, Cheerful , I could go on and on and on . . .

Well, the world lost a shining star, but Heaven’s a Happier Place with Charlie charming everyone there.
