Charles Gigous, 40, of Leesburg, Ind., passed away on Wednesday, July 31, 2013.
Charles was born to Alan and Linda (Lemler) Gigious on April 26, 1973. Charles graduated from Warsaw Community High School in 1993. He married his one and only true love, Sherry Lynn Foster Gigous on Dec. 17, 1994. Together they were blessed by the births of their four children: Augustus, Adora, Mahalabelle and Idyllwylde, who all live at home in Leesburg.
He worked at R.R. Donnelly and Sons, Indiana Coated Fabrics, Fabwell, Nisco Bremen Plant and Clunette Elevator, Inc. He was a hard worker who wanted nothing more in life than to love and take care of his family. Charles was a generous and gentle soul. He was kind to animals and small children adored him. He was especially proud of his own children whom he loved to no end and was so proud of their accomplishments and generous spirit. He also loved tractors as well as classic and fast cars. He celebrated his 40th birthday this past April with his family at the Kosciusko County Fair Grounds race track.
He is survived by his wife; children; parents; a brother: Ezra Gigous, Oswego, Ind.; two sisters: Lurena (Jason) Kerlin, Pierceton, Ind.; Debra (Eric), Warsaw; a nephew: Kane Bradley, Pierceton; and a niece; Maria Kovach, Warsaw.
A celebration of his life with prayers and hymn singing will be held at his home Church, Clunette United Methodist, at a later date. Arrangements are being handled by Misher Funeral Home.
To Charles, life was a celebration. It was always his wish that when his time came, that family and friends would wait for a good day and have a picnic at the Chinworth Bridge and it should be “a pig in the ground and beer on ice.” Plans are pending.
