Charles "Chuck" Inman, 76, a lifelong resident of Sheridan; passed away on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 with his family by his side.
He was born in Sheridan, on Oct. 21, 1944 to the late Warren Henry and Audia Deloris (Greathouse) Inman.
Mr. Inman attended Sheridan High School, and afterward worked as a millwright for 45 years for United Feed. He retired in September of 2009.
On February 9, 1963, he married the love of his life Karen (Mace) Inman, and the two of them have remained at each other's side for the last 58 years. Mr. and Mrs. Inman involved themselves deeply with Six Points Wesleyan Church and used their faith and devotion as the foundation of their marriage, while at the same time instilling these values upon their children and future generations to come. Being a proclaimed gunsmith, he became a member of the NRA. Not only did he collect guns for himself, but also repaired any firearm entrusted to his care. When he was not collecting or repairing guns, he could be found training hunting dogs and would often bring them along on his hunting expeditions with his friends. He also enjoyed leather work, and while he could make all different sorts of items using leather, he was most known for his leather gun holsters for people to carry their firearm by their side.
Mr. Inman never knew a stranger and was guaranteed to know someone no matter where he went. One of his greatest joys was his grandchildren, he looked forward to spending time with them and going to their activities.
Survivors include his loving wife Karen; their devoted daughters, Karen (Phil Schultz) Inman of Grayslake, Ill. and Mary (Chris) Moudy of Frankfort; his sister, Sue Wallace; five grandchildren, Sadie, Cora, Matthew, Max and Chloe; nieces and nephews; and many friends.
He was preceded in death by his brothers: Jack, Billy, Dave, Jim, and Tuffy; and his sister Julia Ann.
