January 1, 1934 — August 22, 2019

He was a member of Central Baptist Church for over 30 years where he served as an Officer. Charlie worked for the City of Abilene Street Department for 42 years and eight months. He enjoyed playing the fiddle and harmonica. Charlie never met a stranger and was never without words; he was a wonderful storyteller and loved to tell jokes. He loved listening to traditional Christian music. He was a "Jack of All Trades," but a master of none. Charlie was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, and he will be missed dearly by his family. Charlie was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Clara Parks, five brothers and one sister. He is survived by his wife, Ludie Parks; sons, Roy Parks (Fay), and Greg Parks; grandchildren, Shayann Parks, Katelyn Hinkle (Evan), Ethan Parks, and Makenah Parks, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
