Obituary for CHARLES MACKALL

Charles Edward Mackall, affectionately known as “Junior”, son of Helen and Frederick Hawkins, Sr .was the first born of fourteen children. He was born on May 27, 1935 in Calvert County Maryland. Charles was educated in the Calvert County Public School System and shortly thereafter Charles left Calvert County and relocated to Baltimore, Maryland where he spent the better part of his life. A Time to Love - Charles was a loving and kind person who did not hesitate to give of what he had, even to the point of his own personal sacrifice. Although he maintained a rough exterior, his heart was that of pure gold. Charles loved his family and cherished the time that he spent with them. Having the opportunity to spend his last Christmas with a large portion of his family, he took the time to reintroduce himself to the younger generation and watched joyfully as many members past by him with warm greetings. His smile was infectious and gave you a sense of comfort each time you met him. In his absence, we can now look upon his six children and seven grandchildren as they carry on the loving heart and unselfish kindness that their father possessed. A Time to Work - Charles was an avid worker who was never afraid of a day’s work. He loved machines and chose to work as a Heavy Equipment Machine Operator. This was a passion of his and the quality of his work would tell it all. Charles worked with a drive and determination that was unmatchable as he would meticulously complete each task that was assigned to him. He missed very few days from work and only sickness would keep him away. Charles worked for sixty years throughout the Anne Arundel, Prince Georges and Baltimore Counties. He worked for various construction companies within his career, but worked for P&J Construction for the better part of 45 years which is a testament to his commitment and loyalty. Charles was an asset to whatever company that he was employed. A Time to Enjoy Life - Charles loved the outdoors. He was an avid hunter, hunting all types of game during the appropriate seasons. He was particular to hunting rabbits and deer, but did not hesitate to seek out other wild game when the opportunity presented itself. After his retirement, Charles was a part of a social group of about five of his closest friends. For many years, they would meet on the corner of McCullough and North Avenue located in Baltimore and would spend hours reminiscing on the past and of course sharing their many stories which may have lacked any factual backing. Yet to hear his deep laughter as he spoke served only to bring his stories to life. He will truly be missed by many. A Time to Mourn - Following a short illness, Charles Edward Mackall departed this life suddenly on Friday, December 30, 2011 at the Magnolia Nursing Facility. He leaves to cherish his memories a loving mother, Helen; six children, Gerald, Alonzo (Vanessa), Andre, Audrey, Charlene and Shaunta; seven grandchildren, Markus, Takera, Rasheed, Tre’Quan, Erica, Gerald,Jr., Ariea; four great-grandchildren; two sisters, Ruth Warner, Mary Hawkins-Arthur; five brothers, Eugene, Fred, Jerome, Elsworth, and Purnell; Two brothers-in-law, Leroy Warner and Robert Arthur; four sisters-in-law, Debbie, Gertrude, Jewell, and Evelyn Hawkins; three aunts, one uncle and a host of nephews, nieces and cousins. Even as we mourn, we thank God for the opportunity to celebrate Charles’ well lived life. He was a wonderful man whose kindness knew no bounds.
