Charles VanBuren

Charles VanBuren, 86, of Danville, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, at Indiana University Medical Center in Indianapolis.

He was born Jan. 10, 1927, in Palermo, Ill., the son of Charles and Melita (Roberts) VanBuren.

He married Opal Fillinger on Sept. 12, 1949, in Paris, Ill. Opal preceded him in death in 2005.

Surviving him are two sons, Stephen (Anne) VanBuren of Lansing, Mich., and Randell (Lolita) VanBuren of Milton, Fla.; three daughters, Cathy VanBuren of Danville, Teresa (Joe) Humrichous of West Lebanon, Ind., and Tammy (Shane) Hopper of Danville; a daughter-in-law, Louise VanBuren of Danville; three sisters, Alma Parker, Carolyn Holler and Virginia VanBuren; 11 grandchildren, Craig (Ronda) VanBuren, Mark (Jessica) VanBuren, Erika (Brandon) Ruiz, Charles (Sarah) VanBuren, Amber (Loren) Winters, Amy VanBuren, Allan (Amanda) Shepherd, April Shepherd, Jared Tarquini, Joshua (Tyler) Hopper and Christa (Tanner) Sawka; 14 great-grandchildren; one great-great-granddaughter; and several special friends and neighbors.

Charles was preceded in death by his parents; wife; one son, Gregory VanBuren; and one great-grandson, Noah VanBuren.

He went to the University of Illinois and worked in sales and service for Bass Tire and Oil Company in Danville until retiring in 1989. Charles was an avid St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates fan. He served our country in WWII as part of the United States Army. He loved his cat “Holly” dearly. Charles also was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and trusted Jesus as his personal savior.

The family would like to thank everyone from Indiana University Medical Center, “angels in our midst.”
