Charles Edward Barber, born in Bastrop, Louisiana, on December 10, 1944, went on to be with the Lord on November 6, 2022, surrounded by his loving family in Ennis, Texas. Charles, who was better known as “Chuck” was raised in Borger, Tx and as a child regularly visited with his grandparents in Kansas.
