Charles Rupert Jamison, 91, of Longboat Key, died Dec. 29.
Born in Spartanburg, S.C., Mr. Jamison studied at Wofford College. After graduation, he served as a flight instructor in the United States Navy during World War II.

Mr. Jamison retired to Longboat Key, where he indulged in his favorite pastimes: sailing, tennis and entertaining. He worshipped at All Angels by the Sea Episcopal Church, and was a member of Bird Key Yacht Club and The Field Club.
Mr. Jamison was preceded in death by his wife of 45 years, Alexa, and his stepdaughter, Susan Pegram Harrison.
He is survived by his children, Meredith Jamison and Charles Jamison; stepdaughters, Alexa Harrison Moss and Julie Harrison; eight grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
