Charles "Charlie" Sanfield Mcdonald






Charles "Charlie" Sanfield McDonald was born August 8, 1923 in Woodbridge, California.  He left this World and went Home September 22, 2015.

Charlie joined the Army at the age of 21, serving our Country from September 1944 to May 1946.  During that time he was a maintenance repair officer, expert marksman, received the American Theater Service Medal, and a WWII Victory Medal.

Charlie's career as an Engineer was very rewarding to him. He was known for being organized, honest, the ability to run a tight ship and still be friendly and caring to those he worked with. A former Mayor shared these words, "In the 17+ years in the engineering field I've seen very few individuals possess the level of integrity and professionalism that Charlie had shown."

Ten years ago Charlie and Maxine moved to Idaho. Shortly after moving here he had a stroke, but that didn't stop him, he was still consulting and pressing into projects, at the age of 82!

Charlie and Maxine had a blessed marriage.  They had just celebrated both of their birthdays in August and Charlie went home to be with the Lord just before celebrating their 27th anniversary. He was very dedicated to Maxine, always appreciative of what she did, never complained, and never spoke an unkind word to her. They loved serving God together, sharing Jesus love with people where ever they were led.

At the age of 16, Charlie came to know and understand Jesus' unconditional love for him while at a summer camp. He always hungered and thirst for more knowledge in God's Word, and to know and serve Him more. Charlie was very passionate about sharing Jesus Christ's redeeming love. Sharing how his heart was turned around by hearing these words from Jesus, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; NO ONE comes to the Father but through Me." John 14:6

It really stings deep inside when a loved one dies, there are no ways to get around that. We need to grieve and mourn the loss of not having that person to share our life with here on Earth, but when you know your loved one is in heaven, it eases the pain. I know Charlie and Maxine would want you to know that you can have a blessed assurance that when it's your time to leave this World you CAN spend Eternity in Heaven if you simply put your trust in God's redeeming love through His Son Jesus Christ. If you have put your trust in Him yet you know you've been living in your own strength, God will help you to make the U-turn and get back on a narrow path.
