A public visitation will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 31, at Center Point Road Church of Christ with family present. A funeral service will be held at noon, following the visitation at the church. Burial will follow at Dunkard Cemetery with military honors, in Toddville, Iowa.

Charlie was born July 7, 1952, to Charles and Freeda Dunlap. He graduated from Washington High School in 1970. Charlie proudly served in the U.S. Air Force for four years, followed by serving in the National Guard. He worked for Duane Arnold Energy Center where he retired in 2016. Charlie married Kathryn "Kathy" Jean Akers on May 22, 1994. Charlie first was married to Jackie Clark and they had two sons, Jeremiah and Joshua Dunlap. He was a faithful man of the Lord and lifelong member of the Center Point Road Church of Christ. With his patriotism and strong faith, he never stopped being a boy scout.
