In Lubbock he was a member of Southcrest Baptist Church and VFW Post 2466. Charles is survived by his wife, Letty; son, Carl H.

He was a loving husband, active father, doting grandfather, and a hard worker. Most importantly he was an ambassador for Christ throughout his life, and passionate about the subject of Judaism and the church. Church leaders would often consult with him on the issue. The Tepper Family expresses their deepest gratitude to the doctors, nurses, and medical staff at UMC, EMTs, and the Odyssey Hospice staff, who showed so much care and professionalism for so long. We are truly blessed in Lubbock. A memorial service will be on Saturday, Dec. 28, 2013 at 11 a.m. at Southcrest Baptist Church.
