Charles Edward (PeeWee) Burris, age 56 of Salisbury, peacefully passed away at his home surrounded by his loving family in the early hours of Sunday, January 6, 2019. PeeWee was born March 18, 1962 in Cabarrus County to Linda Elaine Yates and the late Carl Edward Burris. He attended Chapel Street Baptist Church in Landis, NC. PeeWee attended Cabarrus County schools and worked in demolition for the construction industry prior to his illness. On the weekends, you could find PeeWee and his Dad at the Webb Road Flea Market and after he lost his Dad, he would recruit as many family members as possible to accompany him there, as that was his weekend ritual. He was extremely passionate about caring for and rescuing Pit Bulls and he loved his own two dogs, Tornado and Lizzy very much. PeeWee was a lover of ink and was well known by the many tattoos he sported, with each one having its own special memory. He loved to give and to receive hugs, was very passionate about his family and friends, and received great joy from all the time he spent with them.

Those left to cherish his memory are his loving wife, Sherry Rene Burris of the home; son, Timothy Wayne Burris of Kannapolis and daughters, Nikkie Michelle Walters of Laurinburg and Deborah Dawn Walters of Albemarle. His brother, Timothy Eugene Burris (Wendy) of Kannapolis and sister, Belinda Elaine Overcash (Randy) of Concord, eight granddaughters and many nieces and nephews also survive him.
