All who knew Charles will remember him as a kind man who encouraged them to always do their best and to constantly pursue their goals. Charles was an accomplished outdoorsman and often could be found hunting or fishing. When not enjoying the outdoors Charles could be found playing his guitar while serving the Lord at the Tripp Baptist Church where he served as Deacon, Mentor and Friend. He was a generous individual who loved life. He was always ready to share a story or tell a tall tale. He was a very humorous person.
In this time of mourning, Charles would be the first to remind us not to be sad but to rejoice for he knew where he was going. He now sits at the right hand of our Lord and Saviour. He will be missed by many.
A memorial service for Charles will take place at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, October 5, 2019 at Tripp Baptist Church located at 401 E. Tripp Rd., Sunnyvale, TX 75182. Following the service, please stay and join the family for a meal.
