Charles is survived by his wife of forty-two years, Dreka Roark; and his four children, Susan Lookingbill and her husband David, Rick Roark of Amarillo, Cindy Hefner and her husband Guy of Amarillo; and Charlie McDowell and her husband Jeff of Missouri City, Texas; his stepsons, Steve Dickson and his wife Linda of Cibolo, Texas and Porter Dickson and his wife Beverly of Wildorado, Texas; fourteen grandchildren and a host of great-grandchildren.
