Charlie Bodo, 52, a Tampa Florida native, passed away suddenly of complications with pneumonia and lung cancer, on June 12, 2017. A graduate of T.R. Robinson High School, he loved to fish and always wanted to be in a boat and on the water.

Charlie is survived by his loving wife of 32 years, Dawn M. Bodo, son Devin Bodo age 17, daughter Amanda Bodo age 13, Mother Marcia Clamon Bodo, sister Laura Bodo and her spouse Irene Paulson-Bodo and children, Mother-in-Law Gail Rohrs, brother in law Rodney Rohrs and spouse Kim Rohrs and children, Brother in Law Stephen Rohrs and spouse Mae Rohrs and children. Charlie was preceded in death by his father, Charles F. Bodo, Sr., and Grandmother Rita M. Bodo, both of Tampa, FL.

The Celebration of His Life will be held at Blount & Curry on Friday, June16, at 7pm, located at 605 S MacDill Ave, Tampa, FL 33609 (813) 876-2421. The family will receive guests at 6PM. Everyone is welcome to attend this casual gathering celebrating his love of fishing, sports and rock and roll.

Charlie owned his Landscaping business for many years and had a passion for Florida wildlife, horticulture, reptiles, birds and all that Tampa Bay had to offer. His greatest passion, other than his wife and family, was fishing. Charlie was also actively involved in the Great American Teach-In and had a passion for educating and sharing his reptiles and knowledge of all local habitats with others.

Charlie, a man who loved the outdoors more than anything, would love to be surrounded by flowers, plants and dish gardens which will later be donated to John Knox Village in memory of his grandmother, Rita Bodo. The family would like to thank the outpouring of support we have been given in this time of grief and disbelief. As Charlie would say, “Stay Calm and Fish On”
