Charles Russell Easley, 73, of Eustace, passed away May 30, 2020. He was born Oct. 18, 1946, in Athens to the home of Essie and Gordon Easley.
Charles worked hard all his life. He retired in 2010 from Oncor with 45 years of service. He wasn’t ready to slow down, so he went back to work for Fred McCurley Enterprises as an FCC Inspector.
Charles was well known as he never met a stranger. He loved helping people and was a great all around hardworking man. Anyone that knew Charles knows he enjoyed driving backroads, mowing his yard, riding in his mule checking on his cows, cookouts, but mainly spending time with his kids, grandkids and dear friends.
Charles was a 32nd Degree Mason. In 1996, Charles and his family started a trail ride called The Easley Trail Ride and all donations went to the Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital in Dallas.
Charles was preceded in death by his parents and sisters Florence Warren, Mary Ann Head, Edwina Coots and Patsy Lay.
He is survived by his loving wife of 33 years Donna Easley, daughters DeAnna Browning and her boyfriend Scott Spurgeon and Shannon Easley and boyfriend Frank Scott, son David Easley and his girlfriend Courtnee Bell, grandchildren Mallory Pfeifer and husband Matt, Brantley Easley, Chandler Easley, Zane Easley, Leyla and Emoree, sisters Bobbette Hull, Loette Self and husband Lloyd and Rose Lee Hamilton and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Bro. Frankie Dilworth and Ricky Wallace will officiate for the Easley Family.
The family has requested that in lieu of flowers please donate to the Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital in Dallas in Charles Easley’s honor.
