Charles was an avid outdoorsman who found peace and pleasure hunting and fishing. He also spent much time gardening and manicuring his yard. Both were extremely well kept and immaculate earning him accolades with the entire area. Charles could fix just about anything he got his hands on. When it came to tractors, lawn mowers and other machinery, if you had a problem, you could always go see Charles and he could fix it. He worked with wood as well and was able to make some of the most unique things you have ever seen. He had such a talented and mechanical mind that he used throughout his life.
Charles is survived by his sister, Selma Bush; niece, Cheryl Kaul and husband, Ralf; great-nieces, Brandi Smith, Brittany Smith, Alexxis Allender and Halle Adams.
He is preceded in death by his parents, George and Mary Killen; siblings, Linda Lou Killen, Glenda Killen and Jerrie Lynn Killen.
