Grand Blanc community gathers to honor memory of Charlie Carmody
Grand Blanc, Mich. —
Hundreds of students, teachers, friends, and family packed into Grand Blanc High School to honor the life of Charlie Carmody. Carmody was a freshman at the high school in 1976, and returned as a teacher in 1992. For some attending the memorial service, he was known not only as a teacher, but as the ‘Voice of the Bobcats’ because he announced hundreds of games for the school. 2016 Graduate Max Harrison was drawn to Carmody’s love on the history of Grand Blanc.
“They called him the voice of the Bobcats, but really he was the voice of the community. I don’t think anyone can probably replace him,”
Charlie Carmody’s brother, Andy, says the family is still learning how to deal with the loss of their loved one, but he’s proud that his brother made an impact on so many people in the community.
“He gave everything he had for this community, and this school. You could tell he loved through his work and passion,” Carmody says.
Charlie Carmody leaves behind a wife, and two children who are currently in the Grand Blanc School System.
