Also surviving are many friends and family who were special to Charles. Special thanks to his ex-wife, mother of the boys, and good friend, Cheryl Murdock; hospice, Johnny Fraley, Larry and Linda Swallows; and his secret admirer for the uplifting cards and letters. Last, but not least, the boys who worked for Murdock’s Construction.  

He was preceded in death by son, Timothy; sisters, Evelyn Gross and LuAnn Robinson; grandparents, Ellet and Maggie Murdock; many aunts and uncles, all of whom were secondary parents.
