Alley, Jr., Charles Peyton
Charles Peyton Alley Jr., 72, passed away Friday, May 6, 2016, in his home in Dublin. Charles was born at Pulaski Hospital February, 15, 1944, to his loving parents, Charles Peyton Alley Sr. and Grace (Boyd) Alley. Charles was the third child of four children and the only son.
He graduated from Pulaski High School in 1962 and went on to proudly serve his country by joining the United States Army during Vietnam. Charles was honorably discharged from the military after serving a 19-month tour of duty in Chu Lai, which is located in the Quang Nam Province of Vietnam. Charles was an avid bowler and fisher, with one of his greatest accomplishments, besides having his children, was bowling a 299, one pin shy of bowling a score of 300 or a perfect game, which is even rarer than a perfect game.
Charles is preceded in death by his parents, Charles P. Alley Sr., Grace Alley; two of his sisters, Dawn (Alley) Krunsberg and Bonnie Lou Alley.
Charles is survived by; his wife, Sandra K. (Kinder) Alley; his six sons, Todd Alley, Brad Alley, John Alley, Lee Alley, Chris Alley, Jeff Alley; his sister, June Alley; his brother-in-law, Sam Krunsberg; and his nephew, Sammy Krunsberg; and many beloved grandchildren.
Charles lived a long and joyful life full of experiences both good and bad, but will be remembered by his friends and family as someone who could be very, very stubborn, but underneath all the stubbornness, had a very playful and joyful personality and was a fantastic person to be around. However, Charles will be remembered to his friends and family as being a beloved brother and son, a caring and loving father and great friend, and he will be sorely missed.
