Ted Charles , Age: 90
March 03, 1928 -- April 28, 2018

Ted Charles, 90, of Overland Park, KS passed away on April 28, 2018.

Ted was born March 3, 1928 in Fortuna, MO. After honorably serving in the Navy, he attended CMSU and the University of Missouri at Columbia. He then embarked on a rewarding thirty-eight-year career with IBM, retiring in 1990. He enjoyed traveling, gardening, playing bridge and board games with his family and following the KC Royals.
