Charles Wayne Laurenzi
March 25, 1942 – May 24, 2021

Retired Navy Chief Charles Wayne Laurenzi ,79, passed away in Pensacola, Florida, on May 24th, 2021.

Charles was born on March 25th, 1942, in Memphis, Tennessee to John Felix Laurenzi and Mary Walters.

He was a long-time resident of the Leipers Fork community in Franklin, Tennessee. This is where he met, and married the love of his life, his "Sweetie", Mavis Bland Laurenzi. They were married on March 17th, 1989, 32 years later, he still had the canceled check from their marriage license.

Summer 2011, he decided that Pensacola would be his final port of call, his family found this odd, due to the fact he hated the beach! but he loved the "Navy town community" Charles always partial to reds, brought his 2 most expensive hobbies along.... his redhead "sweetie", and his red 1962 Chevy Impala. It has jokingly been debated which of these 2 loves was more expensive....

Other than his sweetie, Charles is also survived by his son, Paul Laurenzi of Picayune, Mississippi; daughter, Lisa Laurenzi (Jay) of Slidell, Louisiana; two stepsons, Chris Womack (Mindy) of Tennessee and Jeffrey Womack of Ashland City, Tennessee; brother, Anthony Laurenzi of Saltilo, Mississippi; sister, Wavel Boykin (Clint) of Memphis, Tennessee; brother in law, Larry Darling of Southhaven, Mississippi; several nieces and some nephews, several grandchildren and a few great grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his parents, John Felix Laurenzi and Mary Walters; stepson, Scotty Womack; sister, Judy Darling and his niece, Lori Darling Robbins.

So, to our favorite Sailor (other than Popeye) we wish you fair winds and following seas on your final journey home.

A service for Charles will be held on Monday, June 14, 2021, at Trahan Family Funeral Home of Pensacola. Public Visitation will start at 1 p.m. We will be leaving in procession to Barrancas National Cemetery at 2 p.m. sharp for a graveside service at 2:30 p.m.
