It was back in 2004-5 when I first met him, he was working on building a deck and I asked him if he wasn't to old to be doing that, he laughed, and I asked him if he would mind building some decks for me and my company. That conversation started a long work relationship, in which him and his son Scott built 100's of fences and decks for me. For each of those jobs I had to listen to one of Charles jokes. He was a good man, a hard working-good man. -May he rest in peace.

Aunt Beverly. I will always remember Uncle Charlie. Living next door to my granny and grandpa. Doing things with us when we were kids. Both of you welcoming us into your hearts and homes. Cooking and taking us out to eat when we came up for a visit. Truly a loving caring family full of love, grace and strength. So thoughtful and easy to talk to. He will be missed. God has him in his loving arms and will continue to comfort you. Love your niece Melody.

I remember Charlie as a teenager at church and high school. My parents were good friends of Mr. & Mrs. Talley, as well as Gary & Joann. What a wonderful family the Talley's were.

My condolences,

I remember visiting with aunt Mae & uncle Clarence when I was a little girl. Charlie still lived at home. I thought he was the most handsome young man ever! Daddy lived with them after moving from Woodbury.

Uncle Charlie was one of a kind! His tall stature was easy to lean on in times of need. His corny jokes will live forever! I'm truly sorry for Aunt Beverly, Wendy and Scotty. In addition to his brother Billy and sister Margaret. The only brightness is that he's been reunited with his loving parents and my father, Gary Talley.

God Bless and Keep You All!

I am deeply saddened to learn of Charles' passing. He was a wonderful son to his parents and a great guy all around. I will miss seeing him on my annual visits to relatives in Tennessee.
