Charlie and Martina Hite, two of the three people who died in the horrific Indiana house explosion Wednesday, were partners in marriage and in business with a connection to their community.
The couple, 43 and 37, both worked at the same Fresh Market store in Evansville Indiana and also had a regular flea market table, while Charlie was a volunteer for the high school football team.
Charlie’s brother Steve – the equipment manager for that same Harrison High School team – was headed to Charlie’s home to pick him up when he heard the blast about five minutes away, according to the Courier & Press.
Steve’s brother would shoot video and hand out equipment in an unpaid role for the school.
Aaron Hite, Steve’s son and Charlie’s nephew, said the couple had no children, only pets.
He added that his aunt and uncle were loving and supportive and had helped him move into his first Evansville apartment.
A Gofundme has been set up to cover end-of-life expenses for the couple and anything else…
