Charles William Ambrose, Sr., 74, affectionately known by many as “Charlie,” passed away on Monday, March 29, 2021 at Liberty Regional Medical Center.
A resident of Southeast Georgia for more than eighteen years, Charles was born on December 13, 1946 in Baltimore, Maryland. After graduating High School, he served his county in the United States Army where he was appointed to numerous duty stations including Fort Riley, Kansas for nearly twelve years. Charles retired in 1990 as a Sergeant First Class. He relocated to Georgia to be near the ocean and over the years, became a true, “Baltimore Redneck.” Charles worked several jobs in retirement including positions on an oil rig and as a truck driver but his heart was always in cooking. He truly loved serving others, whether feeding hungry customers or feeding his beloved family, Charles was always right at home in the kitchen. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, hunting and spending time with his family. Charles was a truly selfless person who always looked after the needs of others, especially his family and his wife, whom he spoiled for years.
His father, Calvert Wilbur Ambrose and his brother Calvin and sister, Burnette all preceded him in death.
Survivors include his wife of thirty-seven years, Virginia Ambrose of Jesup; children, Hope Cirino and husband, Jon of Hinesville, Christina Thorn and husband, Michael of Ludowici, Charles William Ambrose and wife, Kymber of Nevarre, Florida, Kati-An Cook and companion, Mark Watson of Brunswick and Westley Charles Ambrose of Jesup; mother, Margaret Ambrose of Baltimore; sister Nancy Jeffery of Baltimore Maryland and grandchildren, Michael, Gabriella, Ginger, Autumn, William, Roland, Phoebe, Madalyn, Grace, Stephanee, Charlie, Kira and Marissa.
