Charles A. Reece was born on February 25, 1952 to the parentage of Alfred and Ruby Jean Reece in Dallas, Texas. He received his formal education from the public schools in Dallas, TX and was a 1970 graduate of South Oak Cliff High School where he was a Track/Field Jr. Olympian and varsity football player. He was baptized at an early age and attended Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church in West Dallas.

Charles was a dedicated employee of Frito-Lay for 35 years. He earned the respect of many leaders as a salesman and ultimately retiring in his dream job as a long-haul truck driver. He loved to fish; take road trips with his wife; DJ old school music for his family at home (Donny Hathaway was his favorite); watching movies, old Westerns and sports. Charles cherished quality time with his wife, grandson, and 3 daughters. He was well known for his infamous Reece BBQ and secret sauce. Surrounded by his family in his home, the Lord called Charles A. Reece home on Tuesday October 12, 2021, where he shall rest in paradise.

He was preceded in death by his mother and father; brother, Johnny Williams; sister, Rosalind Terrell (Joe). Left with precious memories are: his devoted wife, Sarah Reece; loving children, Chareece Brown, Idara Ashun Reece, Kimberly Reece; loyal grandson, Dylan Reece Brown-Turner; two brothers, Alfred Reece Jr. (Alicia), Donnie Reece (Rose); two sisters, Maryland Allen (Billy), Vivian Payne (Patrick); and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

When you heard Uncle Charles laughing it was official, we were having fun! He always had a strong silent presence. Over the years, I began to talk to him about life and I began to understand his clear feelings about his family...they were and still are his heart and soul. It was beautiful to watch as a young man... (it takes a village) what a man to watch over the years. I later realized he was the essence of a man. His family was his gift and he treated them as such. What another great example of a man.
Thanks Uncle Charles - "the big nice guy". Love you Unc!

Daddy, I already miss you so so much. I've always told you how thankful I am to be your daughter, to be born to such responsible parents. I'm so grateful of how proud you were to be a devoted husband & loving father. One who not only provided everything we needed and most of what we wanted, but you also made time to spend with us and be involved in all of our activities. You were front and center at every game, every recital, every concert with your video camera. I'll miss celebrating our birthdays together, our daily morning video calls, watching movies with you, having you DJ for us, hearing all of your stories. This will be tough daddy but it gives me such comfort to know we left nothing unsaid.
I'll love you forever daddy,
Your "Ladybug"

Daddy, it's Miss Lou. I love you and I'll miss you like crazy. Thank you for protecting and providing up until your last moments with us. You lived a full life and praised God even in your pain. As much as I wanted more time with you to watch more Cowboy games with, listen to music with and hear your stories (such a great storyteller)... God's healing for you was by His side in paradise.

I'm grateful that I was blessed to say goodbye to you. You left nothing left unsaid to me. I know you loved me, were proud of me and honored to be my father. I was honored to be your daughter. Yours Forever, Shun (Miss Lou).

Condolences to my cousins Sarah La”Nell”, Idara A”shun” and Kim, as God has called Charles Home.
I have been reminiscing on the good times that my family and I have experienced with Cousin Charles. I remember watching “Gunsmoke” episodes with Charles that he so enjoyed. I remember watching Cowboys football with him & the family, and I remember Charles in all the family gatherings; especially for Thanksgiving, long-passed Simsboro Picnics and our visit to the Holleman home (Uncle Odell & Aunt Algene) in Denver, Colorado before they went to Glory (see photos). Because of Charles’ love for driving & traveling across the U.S., he and Nell made that drive to Denver, making a favorite stop at the Iron Skillet in Amarillo. I was so happy and proud when Charles and the family attended my Daughter, Matara’s wedding. So many good times…
Now, there’s no more pain & procedures and he’s now traveling on the wings of angels. And he is resting now in the bosom of Jesus.

Uncle Charles was a solid example of what a devoted father and husband looked liked! I'm thankful for the example that was set, and I'll hold on to that forever!

With my deepest sympathy to know that Charles passed away. I knew him from Frito-Lay when we were in Sales and then later when I was in HR and he became an OTR professional. Charles was an excellent team member and exceptionally skilled in his positions and work ethics. If my memory serves me right, his sales route was #602. (That was 30 years ago). May Charles enjoy his Heavenly life with our Almighty God, with love to his family and friends.

I had the pleasure of working with Charles for many years. He was one of the best drivers and a special person.
