He was baptized at an early age at St. James A.M.E. Church in Jones, Georgia. Charles accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior on June 3, 1985. From that point on, he dedicated his life to the Lord. He was a faithful member of Overcoming by Faith Ministries in Savannah, Georgia where he served for several years as a volunteer in the children’s church. He loved reading his Bible and loved to assist others with understanding the scriptures.

Charles became employed by Hobart Corporation in Richmond Hill, Georgia in February 1983, where he was a welder/machinist, providing over 30 years of hardworking and faithful service.
Charles loved to travel with his family. His favorite destination was Hawaii in which he visited three times. He even learned to scuba dive. He especially loved going fishing with his father Henry, brother Bruce, his children, and his fishing buddies Kenneth "Dog" Sanders and Benjamin Clark just to name a few.
He was preceded in death by his loving mother Vivian Prescott West in 1997.
