Charles Glenn Mizell passed away on October 4, 2017 at his home after a brief illness. Charlie was born in Tallahassee, FL in 1939 but was a true Atlantan from his early teenage years. He graduated from Murphy High School and went on to get his Degree from Georgia State University.



In 1966, he married his life partner, Joy Woodard. Together they built a successful printing business in Decatur where Charlie was a supporter of many community projects.
