Charles Dacoda Sweet

July 11, 1996 - February 15, 2020

Charles Dacoda Sweet, 23, a resident of Cape Coral, FL since 2004, formerly of Middlebury, IN, passed away Saturday, February 15, 2020 in North Fort Myers, FL. He was born July 11, 1996 in South Bend, IN.

Charles would attend Grace with his family who are of the Christian faith. He was a light in every room he entered…his smile and laugh were infectious. His quick wit and humor were always on que. He had a love of people, particularly children, and animals that made his huge physique almost childlike. You only had to meet him once to have been impacted by his affectionate personality. He loved music, fishing, family, and bringing people together. To say he will be missed by many is a huge understatement.

He is survived by his loving mother, Rhonda James (Kevin) of Cape Coral; five loving siblings, Brandon Meadows (Heidi) of Edwardsburg, MI, Kelsey Meadows of Cape Coral, Alexis Sweet of Goshen, IN, Van Martz of Cape Coral, and Tristan Jurkowski of Fort Myers, FL; three uncles, David Dunlap of Cape Coral, Scott Dunlap (Kayleen) of Cape Coral, and Van Dunlap, also of Cape Coral; Aunt, Cynthia Ross of Middlebury, IN; three nieces, Marilyn, Alexis Eve, and Mavis; as well as Paternal Grandparents, Phyllis Mikkelson (David) of Cape Coral.

Charles was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Charles and Lena Dunlap; as well as his uncle, Charles Dunlap, Jr., and his Paternal grandfather Charles Sweet.

The family will receive friends from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM Saturday, February 22, 2020 at the James residence, 1455 SE 18th Terrace, Cape Coral, FL 33990.

Monetary Memorial Contributions in memory of Charles Dacoda Sweet are suggested to his family, c/o Mullins Memorial, 1056 NE 7th Terrace, Cape Coral, FL 33909.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.

    Rhonda and Family,
    I am so deeply saddened to hear about your loss of Dacoda. I remember him as a young boy when I lived there in the Cape years ago. We had some fun times at Van’s and Mandi’s. I remember fixing snacks with him and watching movies. May God bless you and help you through this awful time. Love and hugs to you all.
