Charles Ray Todd
June 30, 2020
Charles always had a bright, ready smile and his morning greetings rarely changed. "How are you? I'm a day older but I'm here. It's a sun shiny day! We will take whatever comes! How is Mr. Bill? I'm not ignoring you, but I gotta read my paper. The important stuff.. the funnies!" He was a cut-up but always kind, generous and quick to help. He had a strong work ethic and was very dependable. Fond memories of PePaw always included his crazy sense of humor and sharp wit. He loved teasing people, especially his grandkids. In the four short years I knew him, he left permanent and happy memories and he will never be forgotten!

Charles was one special man. We had many good laughs over the years when Laura was with Exxon. He was always laughing and truly enjoying life, his marriage, and those around him. Go with God young man...
