Dillman-Scott Funeral Home


Charles Nathan Prewitt, 70, of Paoli, Indiana, passed away on Thursday August 27, at Springs Valley Meadows.  He was born September 19, 1949 in Dixon, Illinois to Alton and Marie Dahl. He married Debra Olvey and she survives.


He was preceded in death by his mother.


Charles was raised on a farm, Cash Bottema Farm & Dairy and got into a lot of mischief, like getting caught smoking a cigarette once.


He was a union man. Charles worked doing what he loved straight from high school to the print shop, as a print shop machine operator. He loved his family and friends. Charles was a loving husband, father, brother, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He was the type of man that would have given the shirt off his back if you need it. Charles loved his cats dearly. They were just like one of his kids to him and made him happy and kept him laughing on so many different occasions.


Charles absolutely loved going fishing with his friends every Summer to Patoka Lake out on the boat telling jokes and just being one of the guys. He loved being the life of the party, telling jokes, making people laugh, listening to music, and playing that air guitar he did not have. He also liked playing pool and cards with his friends, son-in-law’s, and grandchildren. Charles loved to watch NASCAR and Formula One Racing. His favorite NASCAR driver was Dale Earnhardt Sr. He loved to go with his brother, Mike to the Formula One Races. Charles always talked about those outings for days after, with a s mile on his face. He was a beer drinking, hardworking, Chevy driving, bass fishing, Earnhardt loving man.


Even as memories started to slip away, one thing always stayed with Charles is family. He loved his family dearly and that never changed.



5-Children, 11-Grandchildren, 8-Great-Grandchildren, his father Alton, spouse Debra, brother Michael Prewitt, sister Debbie Dattilo, sister Betty Harness, and several aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews survive Charles Nathan Prewitt.


Cremation was chosen with a celebration of life to held at a later date.
