Charles Leroy Howard

On the night of Monday, September 20, 2021, Charles L. Howard, Sr. passed away at his residence with his loving family by his side. He was born in Lancaster, South Carolina on March 23, 1946 to the late Carl and Hallie Isaacs Howard.

Charles loved the Lord, his family, his friends, and his church family and had a wonderful sense of humor. He was a proud United States Army veteran, loved bass fishing and was always proud to call North Cove home. He enjoyed watching basketball, and was a diehard NC State Wolfpack fan. He also had a great dislike for UNC.

Left to cherish his memories are his wife of twenty years, Theresa L. Conner-Howard; three children, Charles L. Howard Jr., Steven W. Howard (Jessica) and Joshua R. Howard (Katie); seven grandchildren, Carl Howard, Whitney Howard, Gabriel Howard, Grace Bailey, Charlotte Howard, Scarlet Howard and one granddaughter on the way.

A funeral service will be held on Thursday, September 23, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. at Beam Funeral Service with Reverend David Edwards officiating. The family will receive friends from 2:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m., one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation in Chuck’s memory are asked to consider St. Jude Children’s Research, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, Tennessee 38105 or a favorite charity of one’s choice.

I will miss Charles very much. His sense of humor was wonderful and his love for his sweet wife was a beauty to behold. He is at peace now and we will see him and his great big smile again one day.
