Charlie passed away Monday, December 12, 2022, in Fort Worth. He was born February 22, 1955, in Cleburne to Euclid Author and Helen Marie (Collins) Whitehead. Charlie was of the Christian faith and retired as an auto-mechanic in 1995. He was bigger than life, the ultimate “troublemaker” and favorite uncle. He was a talented singer and Elvis impersonator. Charlie enjoyed gambling, taking cruises, riding his motorcycle (Harley Ultra Classic), NASCAR racing and watching old western movies. He spent countless hours smoking and grilling. The outdoors was his favorite place to be, always with a Dr. Pepper and cigarette. Charlie’s strong will and independent streak as well as his loving nature will be missed greatly.

Charlie was preceded in death by his parents; son, Darrell Collin Whitehead; grandson, Jeremiah Whitehead; and brother, Marlin Darrell Whitehead.

He is survived by his children and their spouses, Charles Guy and Amanda Whitehead, Amanda and Keaton Taylor, Thomas and Amanda Whitehead, Brian Whitehead, and Courtney Whitehead; grandchildren, Kristy, Keaton Jr., Todd, Trey, Payton, Abigail, Ashton and Brock; grand dog, Eevee; great-grandchildren, Hensley and Nova Grace; siblings and their spouses, Deborah Capps, Tina Worthey, and Jeff and Jennifer Rowney; numerous nieces, nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.
