Arthur P. Charter, Jr. 69 years old
Commonly known by his loved ones as “Art”, died on August 23, 2021, at the Elliot Hospital in Manchester, NH. Art was raised in Candia, NH by Arthur P. Charter, Sr, and his beloved wife Mildred H. (Flanders) Charter. Art was a God Loving man who cherished his relationship with Jesus Christ. He looked forward to his 7pm Sunday sermon with Dr. Charles F. Stanley of In Touch Ministries.
Art was enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1968, stationed in Germany. In 1978 he became a barber and owned many shops in his time, but always said he loved serving “the troops” most of all. He retired as a barber on August 16, 2021, at Greg’s Barber Shop in Clarksville, TN, where he served the soldiers of Fort Campbell and local civilians.
Art loved fishing and baseball. Every year he would watch the Little League World Series. He would say “If you want to see a real game watch the Little League World Series. They play with heart”
Art’s smile would light up a room and make anyone he encountered feel loved and important. His laugh was infectious, and his words were always filled with honesty and wisdom. Most of all, he was a good listener to his family, friends, and many that sat in his chair at the barber shop.
Art is survived by his daughters Angel Wildes (Michael), Angela Potavin (Gary), Angelina Charter, and Desiree Charter. His grandchildren Nicole Jordon, Jocelyn White (Casey), Jimmy Michael Jordon, Maria Charter, Levi Charter, Sonoma Potavin, and Joseph Wildes. His beloved nieces Brenda (Johnson) Nealon and Sandy (Bishop) Chase, a sister at heart. His close friends Greg and Anthony of Clarksville, TN. Art is predeceased by his son Artie Charter III, and his siblings Walter Charter, Ruth (Charter) Dubios, Mary (Charter) Johnson, and Caroline (Charter) Bishop.
Art will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and his customers. He will be laid to rest during a private service for immediate family in the coming days.
