Chalmer “Charlie” Bumpus of Lakeville, Massachusetts passed away Monday October 26, 2020 at age 71 with his loved ones by his side. 

Charlie was born August 26, 1949 in Brockton, Massachusetts to Beverly and Nelson Bumpus. He was the youngest of three boys with two older brothers Robert Bumpus, (preceding him in death) and Albert Bumpus of East Bridgewater, MA.
In Charlie's earlier years, he was a mortar specialist in the National Guard. He earned an associates degree at Massasoit Community College and he built a thriving real estate company named after his daughters, Courtlyn Real Estate.

Charlie was a devoted father and grandfather. His two daughters grew up very well loved. One of Jaclyn’s favorite childhood memories were late night summer swims in their pool with her dad and coming in for big bowls of ice cream or root beer floats. Courtney’s best memories are of family vacations on Lake Winnipesaukee and her dad teaching her how to drive the boat and many fun water skiing tricks, as he was an expert on water skis. He enjoyed coaching his daughters youth sports and when he wasn’t coaching, he never missed going to all their games and cheering them on. 

In his later years he loved spending many weekends camping in his motor home all over New England with his fiance, Judi. If you ask Judi what was her favorite thing about Charlie, she will tell you it was his hugs. She could feel all of his love and devotion in every single one. 

Charlie’s jokes were a staple of who he was. He would have everyone at any party or cookout in hysterics, though many of his jokes, that were always delivered with a straight face, made his daughters cringe and frequently would earn him a whack on the arm from Judi. 

Also, Charlie loved to celebrate his Swedish heritage, making all kinds of Swedish breads and meatballs over the holidays. Christmas Eves were always a large display of Swedish food and desserts. He loved hosting holidays and parties and was an amazing cook and baker. His family always looked forward to all of his delicious creations.

Charlie will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him. He is survived by his fiance, Judith Wesley of Lakeville, MA, his daughters Courtney Widdop and husband Todd of West Bridgewater, MA, Jaclyn Stickney and husband Adam of Kingston, NH, his grandchildren Nash, Holt, Lucan, and Teegan, former wife Karen Bumpus of West Bridgewater, MA and his brother Albert of East Bridgewater, MA. He is predeceased by his mother Beverly, his father Nelson, and his brother Robert.
Visitation will be held on Friday, October 30, 2020 from 4-7 PM in the Dahlborg-MacNevin Funeral Home, 280 Bedford St., Lakeville, Massachusetts

I just found out about Charlie's passing I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll always remember Charlie as my best friend, sharing so many great times water skiing, trips to New Hampshire and so many to the Cape, Our years at Massasoit and the friends we made there. The times at the Vega Club, some of these stories can never be shared but I had more fun getting into trouble with Charlie. Our lives went in different directions but I never lost the memory of his laugh and willingness to try almost anything once. he will remain in my fondest memories for the rest of my life.
Sincerely Yours, Moe Barrett
