Charles R. Dadlow, 86, of North Judson, Indiana, passed away Saturday September 11, 2021 at Northwest Health-La Porte.
He was born April 1, 1935 in La Porte, Indiana, the son of Russell Dadlow and Dorothy (Whorwell) Dadlow. Charles and Mary Jo were married October 7, 1967.
A lifelong resident of the area, Charles was the owner of Jeepacres, New Carlisle, as well as D & D Boat Mart. He loved to work, but he also loved to play. An avid fisherman and deer hunter, he especially enjoyed duck and goose hunting. He had a converted bus, which he took on trips to Colorado for his deer hunting trips. Charles was also a big family man and thoroughly loved big family gatherings, where he was the life of the party, mainly because of his great gift of gab.

Douglas (Cindy) Dadlow of Shirley, AR, Daniel Dadlow of Lowell, IN; two daughters, Deborah (Michael) Dillon of Wheatfield, IN, Kimberly (Richard) Facciolo of Wilmington, DE; two brothers, Wayne Dadlow of La Porte, IN, Dennis "Butch" (Nancy) Dadlow of La Porte, IN; 11 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.
