From that branch, the tree blossomed, extending the family with nine grandchildren: LaToya, LaKeya, Kimberly, Terrell, Sherryll, Craig, Jr., Terence, Sierra, and Ahmelah. Still growing, his legacy continues through four great-grandchildren: KeMonte', Kenneth, Trinity, and Sebastian.

At Greater Bible Way, Charles continued to grow in his walk with The Lord, serving in various ministries and was appointed to Deacon under the leadership of the late Bishop Joseph N. Brown.
Charles was a family man and enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren, who were the joys of his life. He loved horses, race cars and automobiles, bowling, baseball, singing, and playing chess. Charles was also known to be a sharp dresser and loved good-smelling cologne. A devoted fan of the Washington Redskins and The Williams Brothers gospel group, Charles was a loyal and helpful man, teaching craftsman skills to family and friends and had a strong love and compassion for people.
In addition to his legacy, Charles leaves to cherish his memory six siblings: Roland (Cheryl), Larry (Phyllis), Nathaniel (Peggy), Wendy, William (Rosemarie), and Dwight; two special brothers Thomas (Sheila) and William (Sarah); two aunts whom he loved dearly: Rosemary Johnson and Maggie Rice; along with many other family members and friends.
