Charles, although born in Tennessee lived most of his life in Oklahoma, until in 1966 he moved to Texas to work as an air conditioning and heat technician serviceman.

He will lovingly be remembered as a “man on the move” and unable to sit idly, always tinkering on mechanical stuff, cars and DIY projects as well as a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan.
