CHARLES MCNEAL OUTLAW, SR., was born in Pink Hill, North Carolina, to Haywood Outlaw and Carolyn Wycke Outlaw on February 23, 1940. He fulfilled his life’s mission and entered into eternal rest on Monday, November 27, 2017, at his home in Littleton, North Carolina.
As a young man, Charles learned the value of hard work by farming tobacco and corn with his dad. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1961 and dutifully served his country for two years, embracing para-trooping at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
At the conclusion of his military stint, the bright lights of New York City caught his eye. He garnered employment with Meyers Parking as an attendant, and in later years, he retired from his position as a Track Inspector with the New York City Transit Authority.
Charles lived his life to the fullest, enjoying his favorite pastimes of fishing, watching TV, and listening to his favorite music of Oldies, Blues, and Jazz. His presence and “Big” personality will be forever lodged in our hearts. Although he is absent in body, he will be ever present in spirit. WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE HIM!
Charles was preceded in death by his parents, his stepmother, Pauline Outlaw; and his sister, Tre’nace Johnson.
Those remaining to forever continue to rejoice in the precious memories of his life and love are his life partner, Rozelle Garcia and family; his daughters, Casilda Murphy (Myron) and Sabrina; his sons, Charles McNeal Outlaw, Jr., and Michael Outlaw; his sister, Valnae Branch; his brother, Kevin Bryant; his “Mom”, Aunt Lettie McGiver; and a host of grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
A memorial service will be held at 3:00 P.M. on Friday, December 1, 2017, in the chapel of the funeral home. Elder Luther Alston will eulogize.
