He had a hard life in his early years, living in a 1 room house in Kentucky and walking was his only transportation. He went on to become a self-employed plumber and successful real estate investor. He was a good man and respected by everyone he knew.
Charlie was survived by his son, Joshua (Angela Brown) Ray. He was preceded in death by his parents; daughter, Camilia Jessie Ray; son, Scott Ray; brother, Thomas Ray.
Honoring his wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation or services.
Lauer Family Funeral Homes-Wren Chapel, 1401 N. Broadway in Hastings has been entrusted to care for the family.
