Charles “Charlie” William Precht, passed peacefully, surrounded by family and loved ones, on Saturday, September 11, 2021 at the young age of 74 at Reid Memorial Hospital after a treacherous fight against COVID-19.
Born on April 29, 1947 in Batesville, Indiana to Harris Precht Sr. and Marie (Wessler) Precht, Charlie was always driven to “get things done”. Soon after graduating from Connersville High School in 1966, Charlie married, and three months later was drafted into the Army. He completed basic training in Fort Knox, Kentucky, and bravely served in Korea as a “sharp shooter”. Charlie would later receive the National Defense Service Medal prior to his exit from the military.
