Charles Harrison Wiegmann, affectionately known to most as Joe, passed away at the age of 81 on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center in Lafayette.

Joe was a native and lifelong resident of Centerville who worked in the natural gas industry for Columbia Gulf for 30 years, retiring many years ago as an operator. He was an animal lover through and through and loved spending time with his fur-family.

Joe is survived by one sister-in-law, Mary Jane Bauer; numerous nieces and nephews; as well as by his close friends and caregivers, John "Red", Patsy, and David Comeaux.

He was preceded in death by his father, Frederick W. Wiegmann; his mother, Mary Packard Wiegmann; and four siblings, Mary Lena Wiegmann, Dr. Frederick H. Wiegmann and his wife Mae Doris Toerner Wiegmann, Elbridge M. Wiegmann and his wife Wilma Frederick Wiegmann, and Carl Wiegmann "Wimpy" Bauer.

A gathering of family and friends will be held Monday, January 15, 2018, at Ibert's Mortuary in Franklin from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. followed by burial in the Presbyterian Cemetery in Centerville.
