He was known as "Herman" by his family and as "Charlie" by extended family and friends. Charlie lived a long life dedicated to Lord. He was a member of Victory Baptist Church in Louisville where he served as a deacon for many years. Charlie considered it his mission to be a witness to anyone who crossed his path. He was known to many by his signature cowboy hat and his magic tricks, which he used as a means of witnessing to others.

Charlie was born on June 20, 1928, near White Hill, Kentucky, later moving to Marion County. Charlie told others of how he began working at the age of 11 and worked "his whole life." He held jobs such as hauling ice to homes with "ice boxes," drove trucks hauling lumber, and eventually worked supporting his family at Blue Grass Cooperage in Louisville where he retired in 1990. In retirement he stayed busy mowing yards in Louisville and his beloved home away from home on "The Ridge" in Raywick. He also mowed for his nephew Danny's properties in Campbellsville. He continued mowing until he moved to Frankfort to be near his daughters. As a Frankfort resident he spent many fun-filled days at the Capital City Activity Center for Seniors where he had many friends. Charlie will be missed by family and friends.

Charlie is survived by his daughters, Diann Shuffett Ashcraft (Brett Ashcraft) and Danetta Mattingly (Dan Mattingly); grandchildren Miranda Baker (Tyler Baker), William Shuffett, Hope Cash (Robert), Robin LeCureux (Jeremy), Amara Mattingly, Nathan Mattingly; great grandchildren Chasity Fowler, Brynlee Baker, Carter Baker, Anna Blankenship, Aaron Blankenship.

Charlie was preceded in death by his wife, Jestine Stumph Huber, parents William and Alice Huber, and siblings Sherman Huber, Dewey Huber, Al Huber, Mattie Miller, Osa Hunt, Dora Morris, Flora Tungate, and four other siblings prior to Charlie's birth. Pallbearers included: William Shuffett, Tyler Baker, Robert Cash, Brett Ashcraft, Dan Mattingly, Danny Huber.

The family would like to thank the Capital City Activity Center for their care and support of him in his final years. Gratitude is also extended to Morning Pointe (Frankfort), Heritage Hall (Lawrenceburg), Frankfort Regional Medical Center, and Bluegrass Hospice Care for their support and kindness in his final days.

The family asked that expressions of sympathy be given as donations in lieu of flowers to the following: Capital City Activity Center in Frankfort, Victory Baptist Church in Louisville, or Bluegrass Hospice Care in Lexington and can be made through Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home.
