He was born Dec. 14, 1931, in Spencer County, to the late Ezra and Clara Curtsinger Tingle. A man of remarkable drive, he owned and operated Charlie Tingle's Used Cars for 62 years up to his passing.

He was a member of Little Union Baptist Church and a Kentucky Colonel. He was recognized in the Bloomfield Bicentennial Celebration as the longest business owner and was appointed Honorable Marshal for the upcoming inaugural Bloomfield Christmas parade to be held this year.
