Charles was born in Denmark, SC, to the late Earl David Barnes and Gladys Deer Barnes. He was a member of the Denmark First Baptist Church where he was very active in many different capacities in the church. He served as a deacon, taught RA’s, and loved to sing and was a member of the Ed Chitty Sunday School Class. Charles enjoyed hunting, fishing and shrimping and enjoyed spending time with his family. He previously worked at Milliken as a trainer for 25 years and then retired from Savannah River Site. Charles was always willing to give Christ all of the glory; he never wanted to bring attention to himself. He served in the U.S. Army and in the U.S. Army Reserve. While serving in active duty he served in Korea.

Survivors include his loving wife of 56 years, Cynthia Faye Truesdale Barnes; a son, Ricky (Amanda) Barnes of Pelion, SC; a daughter, Terri (Steven) Watson of Aiken, SC; his grandchildren, Hannah Watson, Rebecca Watson, Caroline Barnes, Abigail Watson, and Nathan Barnes; a brother, Robert Barnes; a brother-in-law, Jerry Kelly; sisters-in-law, Stephanie Brooks of Staunton, VA and Sandra Truesdale of Georgetown, SC; a number of nieces and nephews, and his loyal companion, Max.
