Charles Robert Primbs
1967 - 2017
Beloved son of George B. Primbs, MD, brother of Cathy Primbs and George B. Primbs, II. He is predeceased by his loving Mother, Bessie J. Primbs, in 2004.
Charlie was truly an innocent, well loved by his daily caregivers, who also grieve his untimely passing.
He was a life-long member of Tri-Counties Developmental Services and an enthusiastic performer at Special Olympics events.
The quality of amazement and awe at the wonders of life, such as cactuses, all animals, wrist watches, and thunderstorms endeared him to all who loved him.
Early memories of activities with his family include walking to Mission Creek just up the road from his family home, to look for frogs and tadpoles. Often the family went with him to the Natural History Museum. At the State Fair, Charlie was delighted with the animals. These recollections of happy times remain in the memories of his sister and brother.
Charlie was athletic, a great swimmer, bicyclist, basketball player, and especially a great skateboarder.
When he was teased in school because he was developmentally disabled, he stood up for himself. Since he was over six feet tall he made his presence known.
Charlie loved family outings including hiking, sailing and camping. These simple pleasures of life when he had treats with family at get-togethers, will stay in his brother and sister’s memories.
We are comforted that in his innocence he will be granted a special place in Heaven, by his Almighty Father.
Charlie, we love you. May you rest in the peace and light of the Lord Jesus.
A mass will be celebrated at the Old Mission at Santa Barbara on Friday, January 5, 2018 at 10AM. A burial will take place at Calvary cemetery immediately following the mass with reception to follow.
