CUMMINGS, Charles E. – of Montrose passed away Wednesday, September 21, 2022, at his home. He was 79 years of age.
Charles was born in Vero Beach, Florida on December 3, 1942. He has lived his entire life in Montrose and graduated from Montrose High School.

She preceded him in death on July 13, 2021.
Charles was a GM retiree. After his retirement, he worked as public tax preparer. When he was not working, he enjoyed woodworking and painting. He loved traveling the back roads, especially when going to any casino, and then laughed as he told how long it took and all the little towns he saw along the way. He enjoyed riding the train or traveling through the different states looking for towns or villages named “Montrose”. Most of all, he loved his family and spending time with them.
He is survived by his children, Ellen (Scott) Sedore of Montrose and Brian (Jennifer) Cummings of Royal Oak; the mother of his children, Sharon E.
