Rev. Charles Curtis Rhoton

April 9, 1941 — March 24, 2022

Psalm 40:2

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

Reverend Charles Curtis Rhoton, Sr. -80, departed to be with the Lord, Thursday, March 24, 2022, with his wife and daughter at his side. A loving and devoted, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and brother.

Charles was a man of God. He pastored at Purchase Church for 21 years. He loved the Lord with all his heart. He preached the word of truth, he believed the word of truth, and he lived the word of truth. He was a rock with a solid foundation, always ready to help one in need. He never spoke an ill word against anyone, nor judged one’s mistakes. Instead, he offered a hand to lead them through the storms, that we all face. His influence on our lives will carry us through the storms if we let it.

Charles is preceded in death by his parents, Clarence, and Rebecca Rhoton; brothers, Emory, Ross and infant brother, Larry; sisters, Ruby Belle and infant sister, Betty; brothers-in-law, Ronald Powers, and Paul Matney; father and mother-in-law, Oral and Sarah Belle Sanders.
