    Charlie was a standup man respected by everyone that met him. I have missed him during his retirement and only have great memories. It was a gift that God allowed me to know this man.

    I pray for your pain and loss and am assured the lord will be with you.


  2. To the BEST DADDY! Thank you for always taking care of us and providing for us! You were such a BLESSING to all those you were around. You taught us many things. You will be deeply missed and forever loved. For ever close to my heart will be cherished memories. What a homecoming there has been in Heaven with all of your loved ones and dear friends. Thanking God for the man you were and will always be. I love you.

  3. Charles was such a selfless person who was all about family and friends. I met Charles in 97 when I moved to Crockett not knowing anyone. Charles and his family welcomed me into their home and treated me like part of their family. I have never forgotten the Sunday dinners, birthdays, and Christmas times always filled with laughs and stories. Charles was always building, fixing, or helping someone out. I will never forget Charles and thank God for bringing him into my life. He showed me what it was like to be a kind hearted loving family man.
