Charles Avery Redgrave Jr. age 70, departed this earth on January 16, 2014, on his own terms, on his own schedule, in his own way; determined not to let cancer control his destiny. He was born on June 25, 1943, at the Santa Rosa Hospital in San Antonio, Texas, to Joy Goff and Charles Avery Redgrave Sr. He was the eldest of three boys and leaves behind his beloved baby brother Roger Michael Redgrave, and also Robert Goff Redgrave. He is survived by his most precious, beloved and beautiful daughter Joy Allison Redgrave-LaField, who he fondly called "his handler", his #1 personal banker and son-in-law John Charles LaField, the three joys of his life, his grandchildren- Brandon Parker LaField, Kelsey Elizabeth LaField, and Zoe Paige LaField. He leaves behind his steadfast companion and dear loved one, Susan Weiner Cook. He also leaves a host of close life time friends behind. Charles attended Mt. Sacred Heart Catholic School for boys, Central Catholic High School, and graduated from Thomas Edison High School in 1961. He had two successful freight salvage businesses on Guadalupe Street from 1962-1967 and he was a professional bus driver for over 20+ years for Greyhound Bus Lines, where he served as President of the local bus drivers union. Charles was a proud Union Man who worked tirelessly for fair wages and working conditions for his fellow drivers. He was an all around good guy, who stood strong on his convictions and beliefs, and who his friends and neighbors looked up to and enjoyed visiting. He was always readily available to help anyone; no project was too big or too small for tinkering or repairing. He enjoyed cooking, critiquing restaurants, tending to his garden, and detailing his fleet of automobiles. He collected ducks and loved the color green. He possessed the greatest brain storage capacity for trivia and minute detailed knowledge of almost everything. He put up a good fight against cancer for almost 4 years, but eventually grew tired and weak. He left this earth, doing what he most enjoyed, sitting outside in his lawn chair. A Memorial Service will begin at 12:00 PM on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at the Chapel of Mission Park Funeral Chapels North.
