Pawdaddy, was a jack of all trades and a master of none, and he said so himself. He spent most of his time working on vehicles, and when he wasn’t doing that, you could find him at Git-n-Go buying scratchers. His weekends were spent in various diners, and fishing on land he wasn’t supposed to be fishing on, but how he spent his time isn’t what’s important to remember. He was a great man who helped so many people, a great stubborn man that you either loved or hated, but his family adored him. He would do anything for anybody who asked, and even if he had an odd way of showing it, he had the biggest heart. We will miss his stupid answers to our stupid questions and listening to him sing and whistle, loud and off key in the kitchen. We are so grateful to have gotten the chance to love and be loved by him.
He is survived by his wife, Shala Comer of the home; 3 children, Zeberiah and his wife Sheila Comer of Seven Oaks, Rheanna “Banana” England of Gans, Leah and her husband Josh Jerrell of Gans; 9 grandchildren, Angel, Sarah, Charlie, Kaylee, Jaxon, Zac, Meghan, and Joshua; 3 great grandchildren, Kyrie, Gavin, and Linnox; 2 sisters, Jackie Smothermon, and Karen Rebecca Wyche; and 1 brother, Joseph William Comer; as well as a host of other relatives and friends.
Charles was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Frances, 2 brothers, Jimmy Don Marsh and Wesley “Pat” Lee Comer, and 1 sister, Robin Chambers.
