He also went on many missions trips around the world. Charles enjoyed hunting, fishing, and relic hunting.

    Aunt Jean, Tammy and Angela ...I am so very sorry to hear of Uncle Charles' passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to each of you and I pray that the Lord brings you comfort in knowing that he is with the Lord and you will each be reunited with him in His house again. Uncle Charles always treated me as family throughout the years and he was dearly loved by me just as each of you are.

    So sorry for your loss. Charlie and I served in the National Guard together. We had some good times and some not so good time serving and spent many a hot summer in the woods in Ft Picket and AP Hill and one trip to Ft Chaffee Arkansas. He loved to talk about his relic hunting and the civil war. Farewell my military brother and we will meet again in Heaven’s army.

    Jean and family
    So sorry for your loss. We will be praying for you during this difficult time. He was very influential to the grandchildren(Marland /Jade Cook and Eric Clark) at Western Heights Baptist Church. I can remember a particular time when Marland had gone hunting with his Papa(Steve) and Marland could not wait to tell Charlie he had gotten his first dear. The next Sunday Charlie brought Marland a box of shells and he told him he was so glad for him. Charlie will be greatly missed. All our prayers are with you.
    Carol ,Steve Beasley and our grandchildren
