I will miss our visits in the barber shop, his jokes, his skill, and friendship. He kept me looking sharp for 33 years, and I am glad to have known him.

My sympathy to the Modica Family. Charles was my barber and friend for a number of years. He always had the ability to talk your ear off and kept his customers entertained. He and I graduated from High School the same year, him from Bossier and me from Byrd, but we had mutual friends. He will be missed!

Mr. Charles was such a huge part of many generations in Barksdale Gardens & a family friend to many of us. His generosity, advice & laughter will truly be missed, but cherished.
Rest easy now in Heaven Mr. Charles, the good Lord above called you home for the retirement you so needed.
Many prayers to Mrs. Irene, Chuck, Rebecca & the family... may you find comfort in knowing he will never suffer illness again & is preparing those Heavens for a glorious reunion with his family.
