Charlie was a man who believed in family values and lived a joyous life with humility. He was a man of faith, despite life’s challenges. His life began on 08 May 1962 in San Antonio, Texas. His dedication to making a difference and being a positive influence in the community started with the Bexar County Constables Office; he then became a Deputy with the Bexar County Sheriffs Office. After 30 years of dedicated service and faithful loyalty to the people, Charles retired and devoted himself to the needs of society’s future. His commitment to change grew him to be a pillar and voice of the community. His love for the people and helping those in need drove him.
In 1999, Charles and Priscilla founded the Texas Riders 4H club in San Antonio, TX. Their passion was to help young kids learn horseback riding and life lessons.
Those who knew him best will remember Charlie first and foremost for the kind-big-hearted man with a big smile, his unique sense of humor, his infamous stories, and
his love for horses.
