Loving, caring, genuine, provider, son, husband, brother, father and many other words could perfectly
describe Charles, affectionally known as 'Shorty' by his many friends. He touched so many lives with
his incredible personality and spirit. He enjoyed listening to good music and fishing.

Shorty loved to dress from head to toe. He was a man who was debonair, confident, charming, and well
dressed. He loved life, enjoyed westerns in his leisure time. He was the jokester of the crowd. He could
make you laugh in the worst of situations, but above all Shorty loved gathering with family and friends,
having fun and enjoying life. Shorty met no strangers; he had a heart of gold. To know him was to love
him. Shorty wore many hats, but the greatest hat of all is his hat of Crown and Glory.

Charles will now grace the heavens with his father and mother, Charlie Sr., and Bertha Anderson;
brothers, William Henry Fletcher, David Lane and Johnny Anderson. Sister in love, Brenda Kirby Hooks.
