HEBERT, Charles "Charlie" Passed away peacefully at the Brookside Hospice House on July 2, at 88 years of age. Charlie was an avid golfer, mystery reader and crossword puzzler. Even though technically retired, he worked security for the last several years at Ruth Eckerd Hall. An enthusiastic member of the Dunedin Elks, he enjoyed golf outings and social evenings with the many friends he made there. His family and friends respected Charlie for his military service in WWII, during which he was an officer and B-17 Navigator in 50 daring daylight bombing missions over Nazi-held Europe. He was decorated with 5 Air Medals, the Distinguished Flying Cross and two Presidential Citations. Charlie was honored to have his exploits featured in a Veterans Day 2009 article in the St. Petersburg Times. After discharge, Charlie was on a Boston Red Sox Minor League team, as an aspiring pitcher for some time, but left his dream to assume the responsibilities of husband and father. He held many jobs in sales during his lifetime, but his main source of enjoyment was derived from his family, his many avocations - oil painting, writing, fishing and golf, and his lifelong love of learning. Charlie survived his beloved wife Kathryn, who died in 1993. He will be greatly missed by his daughter, Suzanne Stevenson of Union, NJ; his son, Scott of Watertown, MA; his grandsons Keir Bickerstaffe of Washington, DC, Evan Bickerstaffe of Fairfax, VA and Jules Epstein-Hebert of Brooklyn, NY; son-in-law Joe Stevenson and daughter-in-law Barbara Epstein and by the many friends that loved him for his quiet dignity, keen sense of humor, quick mind and warm friendship. Services will be held Tuesday, July 6, from 2 to 5 pm at the National Cremation Society, 4945 East Bay Drive in Clearwater. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that friends consider making a donation in Charlie's memory to Suncoast Hospice.
