Charlie was born in Tyler, Texas, on Sunday, June 8, 1941, to Henry and Juanita (Glasspie) Burks. He was a longtime resident of Southeast Texas, where he owned his beloved business; Charlie’s Barbershop.

In his spare time, Charlie enjoyed fishing and spending time outside in his garden, and greenhouse, tending to his vegetables and Angel Trumpets.
