Charles Leon Kumlien of Waldron, Arkansas passed from this life, Monday, April 4, 2022 with his loved ones by his side. Charlie was born January 1, 1962 to William Bruce Kumlien and Sandra Lee Mueller in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was 60 years old.
Beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, Charlie never met a stranger. He loved meeting new people and was quick to offer a hug. He started and ended each day with a smile, a smile so big his eyes disappeared! His laugh (giggle) was infectious and could brighten up anyone's day.
Charlie was a self-proclaimed EB(eligible bachelor) and ladies man. He added new girlfriends all the time but never lost any. His famous line was, "You're my number 1, but not my only one!" Children were drawn to him with his gentle nature and he was gracious enough to share his toys with them. Pets were no exception either-wherever Charlie was, that is where you would find your dog or cat.
Charlie enjoyed all kinds of music and was a great singer as well. he also enjoyed playing with his calculator and was a whiz at math. He had a knack for remembering numbers and could recite every address and phone number he had in his life. He was also a big jokester and had a joke ready anytime!!
Charlie is survived by his mother, Virginia Robison, birth mother Sandra Taylor, brother Dave (Rhonda) Kumlien, brother Bill (Marsha) Kumlien, brother Joe (Joyce) Kumlien, brother Robert (Kim) Taylor, sister Lori Hinkel, sister Jackie (Matt) Riedel. Charlie will be missed by all that knew him including numerous aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces.
Charlie was preceded in death by his father, William Kumlien, step father, Jim Taylor, maternal and paternal grandparents.
A private family life celebration will be held at a later date. Arrangements and cremation are being entrusted to the Heritage Memorial Funeral Home & Crematory in Waldron, Arkansas.
