Charles Argo

November 24, 2018

Charles “Charlie” Alton Argo, age 80, of Marysville and a life resident of Union County, died Saturday, November 24, 2018 at his home surrounded by his loving family. He fought a brave fight with health concerns for 14 years to the point of being nicknamed “Ironman” by his physicians. A mason by trade, he owned and operated his business, Marysville Masonry, for almost four decades. He began his career during high school and worked for Hal Yarrington and Knowlton Construction. Throughout his career, he mentored many young apprentice masons. A 1956 graduate of Northwestern High School, he grew up in the Raymond area and was known as a standout athlete in basketball and baseball. An avid sports fan, he liked “Buckeyes basketball” and always seemed to have a sports game on the television. He also enjoyed golfing, bowling and attending his grandkids athletic events. For several years, he loved spending time with his wife and family at Indian Lake where he was so welcoming of guests to his lake house. He was a member of First Presbyterian Church of Marysville where he served as deacon. He was a member of Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Marysville Lodge No. 1130 and Loyal Order of Moose Indian Lake Lodge No. 1533. He will especially be remembered as a hard-working man of humility and kindness who appreciated the outdoors and enjoyed nature and animals. He was born July 12, 1938 in Union County, Ohio to the late Floyd and Eliene Blue Argo. He was also preceded in death by his sister and brother-in-law, Jackie and Ted Bushong and by brothers-and sisters-in-law, Steve Burson, Judy and Murph Cotter, Sondra Burson and Barbara Park. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Sue Carolyn Burson Argo, whom he married September 10, 1960 at First Presbyterian Church of Marysville; his daughters, Kimberly DeGood (Bruce) Eberly, Kelly Argo Hall, Krista Argo Perry and Karol (Colin) Parks, all of Marysville; his grandchildren, Angela (Michael) Adkins, Chad (Veronica) Eberly, Mason Hall, Nathan, Danielle, Amy, Stephanie and Megan Perry and Natalie and Connor Parks; four great-grandchildren, Chase and Brennan Adkins and Silas and Simone Eberly; his brothers-and sisters-in-law, Jim (Jennifer) Burson, John (Jodie) Burson, Richard Park, Joyce (Bill) Clark and Dee Burson; many nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends and his faithful canine companion, “Chewy.” The family will receive friends 2 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at Underwood Funeral Home where an Elks memorial service will be held following the calling hours.
