Charles Ethridge McCranie

Charles Ethridge McCranie, Esquire
August 23, 1927-September 20, 2015

Charles Ethridge McCranie, Esquire never met a donut that wasn’t worthy of being dunked in coffee and he never left a conversation without making someone laugh. He was a commanding presence in the courtroom. His majestic speaking voice, eloquent vocabulary, extensive knowledge of the law, brilliant mind, and dashing fashion sense made him a formidable opponent. He was a man of integrity who loved his family and friends above all else.

Born to a poor farming family in Cecil, Ga, Charles learned his unequaled work ethic and love for the land. And even though he left South Georgia to serve in World War II and later serve as a corporal in the Korean War, he never lost sight of his humble beginnings and his devotion to his family never diminished. He was a master gardener, voracious reader, world traveler, and walking history book and family genealogist. His quiet spirituality and childlike wonder never ceased to inspire those around him.

Charles was a founder of Finch McCranie, LLP, one of the oldest and most highly respected personal injury law firms in the Southeast. He earned his AB from the University of Georgia in 1950 and his LLB in 1953 at John Marshall University, where he was a Sigma Delta Kappa member.

He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Anne Mainor McCranie along with children: Tenaya McCranie, Randy McCranie, Karen Dowdy and Susan Simich, sons in law: Zibe Dowdy and Dan Simich, daughter in law: Michelle McCranie, grandchildren: Nathanael and Zachary Dowdy, Patrick, Ashton and Sam McCranie, Chandler and Hunter Simich, his brother Russell McCranie and sister in law Mary Ann as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents Charlie Duncan McCranie and Eva Mae King, and his 3 brothers Howard, Harry and Pete.

He was a man of strength and good will who left this world better than he found it and made a few people laugh along the way.

A memorial service will be held at 13846 Panhandle Lane Hampton, Ga 10/3/15 at 3p.m. A graveside service will be held at The Fellowship Baptist Church 2239 Hutchinson Pond Road Hahira, GA 10/4/15 at 3p.m. In lieu of flower arrangements, donations of flower bulbs would be appreciated as well as donations to the Fellowship Cemetery Fund.
