Charles was my big brother, who stepped in as a Father figure., he took care of all of us, he even went to work at age 15 to help our family with finances. He was always there for me, a great big brother. He loved sports , especially the college football and the Lady Eagles, we took many trips together to watch tournaments , these outings were amazing , he not only taught me about sports, he taught me about life. Charles was a Man of God , he was kind and caring ,really funny, hard working, he was a great man, We will miss you so much Charles!!

I was so sorry to hear of your loss of Charlie. My husband knew Charlie through his interactions with him as we owned a property management company in town and Charlie and my husband, Rodney were out and about doing things around town...their interaction was priceless. If Rodney could know that Charlie had passed away, he would be so sad and would for sure go to his funeral, but he can't since he is in a Memory Unit at this time. Charlie was my friend, giving me a hug, talking to me about how Rodney was doing and making me feel like I was special when I came into every store mentioned in his obituary...that is how long I have known Charlie. He was a special man to me and my family and will be remembered!
