Charles Frank Pannell was born on June 8, 1945 to the union of Floyd Henry Pannell and Alberta Lucille Pannell in Columbus, Ohio. He was raised in the way of the Lord at Bethany Baptist Church. At 18 he moved out of Ohio and lived all over the country before settling down in Seattle, WA.
On June 17, 1995, he married the love of his life Bonitia Hampton-Pannell. She was his everything and every day he made sure she knew that. She stood by his side until the very end. Together they raised Cassandra Hampton and Tamara Hampton-Hoston.
Charles was a hardworking man. He retired from working August 2021 after working the same job for 31 years. When he wasn’t working, he spent the majority of his time with family or at the SEIU LOCAL 6 Union Hall. He held many positions in the Union and it was truly his passion after family. Some of the positions held were Vice President and Shop Steward. At the time of his passing, he was still a member of the SEIU LOCAL 6 Executive Board. He was truly an inspiration on what being a caring husband, father and employee looked like.
