Charles M. Brennan, 84, passed away peacefully Sunday, May 13, 2018.
Charles was born February 10, 1934 in Akron and was an Akron resident his entire life. He served in the US Army as a PFC in the Infantry.
He was a dedicated and hardworking man. You could see the pride of his Irish Heritage in the twinkle of his blue eyes. Through all life's trials and tribulations he believed that a strong faith in the Lord will keep you on the path towards the Kingdom of Heaven.
"May the wind be always at your back and may the sun shine warm upon your face and until we meet again may God hold you in the palm of his hand."
