Charles D. Plummer

Charles D. Plummer 68, passed away on Thursday, January 21, 2021. He was born in Ballston Spa, NY on August 23, 1952 to Claude and Mary Plummer.

After graduating from Ballston Spa High School, he worked at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds, a job he truly enjoyed. He later worked for the Town of Milton Highway Department until his retirement in 2007.

Growing up on a farm, Charlie had a love of cows and antique gas engines. He was a Doodlebug Tractor enthusiast, which involved using a Model A Ford to build a homemade tractor. Charlie was a people person and with his dry sense of humor he made friends wherever he went and made sure to give his friends a daily hello whether in person or online.

He was predeceased by his parents Claude and Mary, and his beloved wife Debra. Charlie is survived by his daughter Christina Plummer; brother Robert Plummer and sister Peggy Sturtevant; and many nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends are invited to call on Monday, January 25 from 2pm to 3pm at Armer Funeral Home, Inc., 39 East High Street Ballston Spa. Facemasks and social distancing will be required. A graveside service will be held in the Powell Wiswall Cemetery in the Spring.

Memorial contributions in memory of Charlie may be made to St Paul’s Lutheran Church, 149 Lake Avenue, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.

Erin Christine Thompson & Family

My dearest Christina, I’m sure there are no words that can come close to easing your pain. You are such a special person who has had to endure too much pain at a young age. My lovely, I am so sorry for that. I wish I could take your pain away, or shoulder the brunt of it for you. Your mom and dad had such strong faith in the Lord, and were so sweet, thoughtful and wonderful people. They will shine down on you and your future family for the rest of your days here on earth. Hold tight to the belief that God will not give you more than you can handle. Cherish and nurture the memories, as well as the wonderful values and life lessons that they raised you with. I do love you, and my family and I are here for anything at all that you need. We’re just a hop, skip & jump away. ((Hugs))
Peace & Love Sweetheart,

Christina, Robert, Peggy, and family, I am sad to learn today of the passing of one of my closest friends, Charlie. We became friends in Charlie’s single days when we showed antique engines at the Schaghticoke Fair. We shared the love for rusty iron mechanical farm things, and a dry sense of humor. I was there to witness his marriage to the love of his life, Debbie. His priorities were changed to family and raising Christina. Through Debbie’s Christian upbringing, Charlie learned of and claimed his salvation in Jesus. I was there for Charlie and Christina at Debbies funeral and after. Charlie and I travelled to several engine and tractor shows together. Our last trip was this past Summer to an antique outboard boat motor show in Johnstown, with the return trip by Rock City Falls and the papermill ruins of Kaydeross Creek and the lost industry of Ballston Spa. I am sorry I will not be able to attend the visitation on Monday, January 25th as I am in Florida for the Winter. I hope I can attend the graveside service in the Spring (ice cream?). I have many good memories of Charlie, until we meet again. You have my condolences, offer of help, and virtual hugs.
