Charles F. Jintry

Charles Foster Jintry, 76, died Sept. 24 near his lakeside summer home on Bass Lake.

He was beloved by all whose lives he touched, and admired by many people whose lives he didn’t.

Charles was born in 1939 in 3-Corners, Michiana. Jump ahead a few years: After receiving his doctorate, he began teaching at Bass Lake Community College (now Bass Lake University, then-Bass Lake Community College). He climbed the ladder until reaching the pinnacle at Universal University, where he eventually became chief professor of anthropological engineering. Following retirement, he returned to the Bass Lake area.

Mr. Jintry was a longtime member of Michiana Society of Engineers, National American Service Club, Gamma-Gamma-Hey Fraternal Order of Genius, Loyal Order of Academics for Veterans Affairs Advocates and he contributed to several humanitarian projects throughout the globe. He was a loving father, spouse, grandparent and friend.

And, even with all that, he died anyway.

Survivors include his wife of 51 years, Glenda; two daughters and sons-in-law and their families; seven grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. He also had been preceded in death.

Pre-funeral services are set for 11 a.m. Tuesday at St. Methodist Catholic Church. Services begin at 2 p.m. at the church, with a prayer service and a carry-in supper scheduled for later in the day. A separate, larger celebration-of-life is planned near Universal U, preceded by a much more expensive version of this obituary, in a more prestigious publication.

Memorials may be sent to those less fortunate than all of us.
