Funeral services for Charles H. “Uncle Charlie” Bain, age 83, of Pell City, AL were held on Monday, December 5, 2011, 2 PM, in the Kilgroe Pell City Chapel with Bro. Donald Ray Maddox and Bro. Kenneth Maddox officiating.   Burial followed in the Oak Ridge Cemetery. “Uncle Charlie” passed away on Friday, December 2, 2011. Preceding him in death are his parents, James and Ida Belle Bain; brothers, Julian Bain, Ralph Bain, Gordon Bain, and Harold Bain; sister, Mildred Wright. Mr. Bain is survived by his wife, Helen Bain; daughter, Carolyn (Ron) DeThomas; sister, Odelle Bain; granddaughter, Tracy (Jonathan) Whitten. Charles Bain was best known as “Uncle Charlie” by his many friends, as well as family members.  He loved the outdoors, raising cattle, huge vegetable gardens and was very well known many years ago for his red worm farm.  Whether it be minnow, cricket or his famous homegrown worms, fishermen came by 24 hours a day just to buy their “fish bait” because he took such pride in the quality of bait that he sold.  “Uncle Charlie” loved to tell stories of his childhood, hunting trips, and fishing experiences at Huckleberry Pond, Locke 4 on the Coosa River and Broken Arrow Creek.  He loved to serenade us his many harmonicas, playing many songs he loved, “How Great Thou Art”, “When They Ring Those Golden Bells” and his most requested one…the train coming around the mountain and into the station.  He leaves a legacy of love for his family and friends and a willingness to always help someone in need. Pallbearers were Alan Bannister, Steven Bannister, Jonathan Whitten, Ron DeThomas, Gary Kendrick, Dale Skelton, and Barry Skelton. Condolences may be
