Charles graduated from Spring Woods High School in 1974 and from Texas A&M University with honors in 1978. He enjoyed a successful career as a Division Order Analyst at several Houston oil and gas companies.
Charles played youth baseball, ran track and played football in high school as well as intramural sports in college. He enjoyed water skiing, fishing and dove hunting. An avid newspaper reader, he was never afraid to work the crossword puzzle in pen.
Charles had a quick wit and was always up for some good humored teasing. He was very generous with family and friends and was known to his niece and nephews as an excellent gift giver.
There will be a graveside service for family. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Star of Hope would be greatly appreciated.
