Charlie Delph

July 26, 1968 - March 9, 2023

Charlie Delph, 54, of Corbin passed away Thursday, March 9, 2023, at Baptist Health Hospital in Corbin, Kentucky.  He was born July 26, 1968, in Berea, Kentucky.

Charlie was preceded in death by his mother, Jean Delph; brother, Michael J. Delph; mother-in-law, Etheleen Hartsock; sister-in-law, Elaine McQueen; brother-in-law, Eddie Hartsock; and niece, Lexi Brock.

He leaves behind his loving family: his “little, lovely” wife Patty Sue Delph; father, Charles Delph; four children: Holli (Dustin) Bunch, Jodi (Dylan) Nunn, Cassidy (Justin) York, and Coby Delph; eight grandchildren: Bentley Ryan Lawson, Khloe Elizabeth Blakely, Emory Scottlynn York, Novalee Renee Nunn, Charlee Ann York, Kambree Elaine Nunn, Scotty Michael York, and Tommy Blaine York; five very close sisters-in-law: Donna Hartsock, Gwendolyn Hartsock, Jo Hartsock, Wanda (Sean) Johnson, and Carolyn (James) Martin; and many special nephews and nieces to whom Charlie was like a father.

Charlie is also survived by others whom he considered as brothers and sisters: a special cousin, Kenny (Lisa) Reinhart, Mickey and Stephanie Robertson, Tim and Stephanie Roberts, Doyle Sparks, Jimmy Walker, Dr. Khalid Chaudry; his beloved Mama Faye Buchanan; and the Charlie Delph Roofing and Contracting crew.

Charlie’s family was a priority for him, and he worked extremely hard to provide for their needs. He enjoyed spending quality time with them.  He particularly found joy in taking road trips with his beloved wife, Patty.

Charlie was dearly loved and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

A service of remembrance will be held at 3:00 P.M. Thursday, March 16, 2023, in the Hart Funeral Home Chapel with Bernard Thomas and Jason Thomas officiating.  Pallbearers will be Sean Johnson, James Martin, Sean Johnson II, Santiago “Shorty,” Fernando, Dakota Robertson, Jamie Miller, and Ryan Heino.

    I never got to meet Charlie but I know I would have loved him because my daughter Stephanie and her husband Tim always talked about how much they enjoyed being with him and Patty on vacation in Florida. I am so glad that they got to meet and spend time with them. They love him and Patty very much. My husband Jim thought alot for him also. He went on vacation to Florida with them and he had a great time talking about the boat they rented the skiing all the sights on the road trip he just really had a great time I am only sad that I never got to meet him. .As I was growing up my Mom use to say God only takes the best and in this case I think that is true. Patty I hope I can meet you and your family and I am praying for all of you and I know God is all we have to hold on to in times like these. I am truly sorry for your loss. May GOD keep you and family in his care.

    I’m beyond devastated! Charlie was such a hard working man. His family was like my family. His lovely wife patty and his children are wonderful folks. They have always been there for me and my family over the years. I remember when my bub worked for Charlie for years and we got to know the family, I’m so sorry for your loss. He will never be forgotten. I wanna give my condolences to the family! We use to live right down the rode from them growing up maybe 3 houses down. It’s just so sad and so heartbreaking! I’m very sorry! I’m here if they family needs anything.

    Many prayers for Patty, and all family. I saw Charles grow up here in Jackson Co. He was always so sweet, and humble. I was so proud of all he had accomplished. Charlie carved out a great career, gained much respect, and made so many beautiful memories with, and for, his devoted family and friends to cherish always.
