Charles A. “Charlie” Struble Sr., 64, of Bellefonte, passed away on Thursday, March 4, 2021 at home surrounded by his family. Born on December 13, 1956 in Bellefonte, he was the son of the late Rodney M. and Emma Mae (Loesch) Struble. On July 19, 1986 he married the love of his life, Kathy (Korman) Struble, who survives at home after sharing 34 years of marriage.
Charles was a graduate of State College High School class of 1974 and attended CPI for Auto Collision Repair. He drove truck for Ameron Construction Co. Inc., from 1988 to the present.

In addition to his wife, Kathy, he is survived by his children, Heather (Bair) Struble (Michael Bair) of Cassville, PA, Natasha (Flory) Struble (Scott Flory) of Port Matilda, PA, Charles Struble Jr., (Ashley Zimmerman) of Renovo, PA, and by one brother, Mike Struble and one sister, Linda (Chesney) Struble.

Charlie and I were neighborhood friends in the 60s and 70s. Although life spread us apart in recent history we were always good buddies. My best memories are from the Houserville days when we worked on motor bikes, cars, trucks, tractors, and firearms. We put all the above to good use and had a lot of fun and adventure. Charlie will be greatly missed.

I first met Charlie back in the mid 80's. Over the years he did body work for me on serveral cars and painted my tractor. Charlie was a good mechanic and welder but most of all he was a good and dependable person. I always enjoyed talking to him and i will miss him. I am sure that Charlie is in heaven and God has given him a new Peterbilt and has plenty of work for him. Tom Songer

Kathy, Heather, Natasha and Chuck, I'm sorry for your loss. Uncle Charlie was such a jokester and always had a good outlook on life. He could always bring a smile to my face. I was fortunate to grow up in a family that had just close aunts and have fond memories of him visiting the farm. I know his kids and grandchildren meant the world to him and he was blessed in this area. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Love to all, Caulene Hawn Sanford

Dear Kathy and Family,

Please let me offer our condolences to you and your family. I remember the funny guy Charlie was and I will always remember him joking with me when he would pick you (Kathy) up at Hills when we worked there back in the '80s at Hills's Dept. Store. When I was hope with mom over Christmas we were talking about the both of you. We will keep you and your family in our prayers.
