"To all my relatives, I will miss you dearly. God has been extremely good to me during my lifetime for which I thank Him very much. You all know my life story, so I won't bore you with two or three pages of things that is of no interest to most people. It has been a wonderful life and I leave behind a beautiful family: my wife Vicki; two daughters, Tammy Sue and Linda; three sons, Brent and his wife Gayle, Mark and his wife Tammy, and Luke; five grandchildren, Tara Casoli and her husband Aaron, Sara, Summer, Jason and Charles Joseph 'Little Charlie'; and two great-grandchildren, Jason 'Jace' and Brennan."
Charlie is also survived by the mother of his four children, Marlene Milam.
Pallbearers will be Richard Broussard, Glenn Armentor, Aubrey Vidrine, Tom Mautner, Darrell Guillory, Jack Ainsworth and George Latiolais. Honorary pallbearers will be Larry Sikes and Pete Nicolosi.
