Charlie Ward was born the eldest son to the late Eugene and Lounice Ward in Mobile, Alabama; November 24th, 1941. He received his wings October 27th, 2021 surrounded by loved ones.
Charlie attended Council Elementary School and Emerson High School in Mobile, Alabama. In 1965 Charlie moved to Boston, Massachusetts where he resided for most of his life. He was a professional tractor trailer driver for 32 years, which lead him to many places he called home. He lived in Ohio, PA and NH to name a few.
Charlie loved and lived life to the fullest. He was headstrong, down to earth, sociable, and kind hearted. He was well-known to many in the community, but most importantly he was the Patriarch to his family. He created a memorable image of himself with his brim hats, tooth picks, and Stacey Adam shoes.
He would always say, “Never say goodbye that means forever. I'll see you later, love you!” This is his final goodbye. He was loved tremendously, and will be truly missed.
