He was preceded in death by his wife of 44 years Peggy Ann Edwards Blanford. "Charlie" graduated high school in Port Arthur, Texas and was a long time resident of Glenn Heights, Texas. Both he and his wife Peggy retired from Texas Instruments. He requested no services, he lived everyday in a way that goodbyes would not be necessary for people he loved. A very compassionate man, he gave much of himself to family as well as strangers. He taught us that our giving and heartfelt kindness was worth much more than things we amassed. He will live long in our memories and the life lessons we learned from him will be passed on to future generations. 972-223-6314
