He was a member of Calvary Baptist Church.
Charles David was a hard worker and thoroughly enjoyed farming with his family and sharing stories of past generations. Charles David loved feeding cattle, especially when he had someone to open gates for him. He truly enjoyed being around people and his laugh was contagious. Hosting family and friends was one of Charles David’s greatest pleasures, but his absolute pride and joy came from his three grandchildren.
