Morris Charles Whittle, Sr.

August 16, 1941October 2, 2013

Charles went to be with our Father on Wednesday October 2, 2013 at 7:44 am after a lengthy illness. He was born in Idabel, Oklahoma on August 16, 1941. Charles met the love of his life, Nancy Lucille Price, and after asking permission, he took her hand in marriage on January 7, 1963, and she fought with him until the end.

Charles was proud of his country and what it stood for. He served 4 years in the Army, while spending the next 26 years in the Navy, retiring at the status of E-8 SCPO. After retiring from the Military, he and his family moved back to Midland so that he and his wife could be closer to their families. During the next 16 years of his life, Charles enjoyed working for MISD in the CNS department. After his retirement, he spent the rest of his years enjoying the company of his family and friends and his dog Flower.

Charles was preceded in death by his daughter, Melissa Whittle; his father and mother, Edgar and Beola Whittle; sister, Millie Phillips; and brother, Ernest Whittle.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Nancy Whittle, and his daughter Michelle Cauble and her husband Emery; their children Josh and Hannah; his son Charlie Whittle and wife Rachelle; sister Mary Fontenot and husband Jay; brother, J.B. Whittle and wife Faye; sister Shirley Holmes and husband Larry; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law; and numerous nieces and nephews.
