When I was a little boy on crestgrove growing up. I always thought he was so cool.. Then he got that dune buggy and he was even cooler. That was my best friends big brother. he would play pranks on us. Man those were some good days. If I remember correctly he was the one who thought us to soak a tennis ball in gasoline and light it and throw it back in forth on the street. HHHHmMMMM-- we had a great child hood

Being named after my father and grandfather I learned quick that I had some big shoes to fill. I have so many memories with my father and the one I wanted to share is our first fishing trip. I have been told that grandpa took his family on many camping and fishing trips. Those trips impacted my father deeply and he wanted to share the same expierneces with me. As a kid I never had the patients to sit and fish or work on a car with dad. So, one day dad takes me out on a boat and within minutes my dad has a fish on. Then another and another. Maybe an hour passed and no fish for little Charlie and I begin to get upset. I remember arguing with Dad telling him I can’t do it. Right when this arguement is starting to really reach its peek I was still steadily casting my rod and reeling it back. The arguement stop when I tried to cast my pole and dad snatched it mid cast. I was shocked he did that and was for sure I had upset him enough that the trip was over. My dad held my pole and before I could ask him why did he do that he swung the pole tip around to reveal my first fish. Ever since then my dad spent many good times fishing and we only argued about who caught the most or biggest fish.

I love you dad and I’ll make sure to pass down these same memories to your grandchildren. I’ll never forget you really helped shape my life and touch so many hearts during yours.

Love you,
Charlie

My dear brother Chuck - You were a loving son, father, grandfather, and brother. But, you had a bit of fearlessness in your spirit. You rode beautiful motorcycles and enjoyed life. You sometimes would have very interesting (okay strange) conversations, but you wholeheartedly loved to live, laugh and love. I will never forget the time we went skiing at Sam Rayburn and Dad would bring the skier into a cove when they were done. One day, Chuck was the skier and Dad made a quick turn around in the cove. The idea was that Chuck would let go of the rope handle and glide into the shallow water. This didn't go as planned. Chuck was coming in fast and he let go of the rope handle and came in hard to the beach. His ski's hit the sand and he came flying out of the shoes, tried to run it out, but flipped head over heals about 4 or 5 times until he landed in the tree line. We all got scared for a minute, but he popped up with the biggest grin on his face! I didn't know he was so acrobatic! Good-bye, Brother! I will miss you so much! I love you! - Sis
