Roger Charles

Roger Charles

Roger Thomas Charles passed away on January 8, 2024.

A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.

Arrangements are entrusted to Triad Cremation and Funeral Service.

Roger “Red” Charles, 70, of Greensboro NC passed away suddenly on January 8, 2024.
Roger was born in High Point, NC to the late Foil Vernon and Ruth Haywood Charles. In
addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Mark Haywood Charles.
Roger was a Starmount guy, a lover of Izod shirts, and a creator of nick names with a never-
ending desire to share inappropriate jokes and stories. He loved to read and enjoyed the
company of friends both old and new. He was especially known for his love of Ruby and
Roscoe, his canine companions.
After graduating from Grimsley High School, his education continued at UNC-CH, High Point
College and ECPI. His love of construction eventually led to the creation of his company,
Greensboro Concrete.
Roger had a long-time commitment to AA, attending meetings often. His life was a combination
of the best of times and the worst of times. But throughout his ups and downs, Roger was
always surrounded by loving, supportive and loyal friends.
If the value of a person’s life is measured by the amount of people they touch, then Roger’s
value at the end of his journey was far greater than he ever imagined.
The memories of our crazy adventures with Roger and his infectious laugh will never be

A Gathering of Friends will be Saturday, February 17th at 4:00 pm on the second floor of Natty
Greens 345 S Elm St in Greensboro.

I am so very sorry to read of Roger Charles passing. We were friends and classmates 8th - 9th grade at Kiser Jr. High and 10th grade at Grimsley. He was a good guy and will be missed by all who knew him, whether recently or in the distant past.

I knew Roger some at Grimsley, and some at UNC but more when we were older at yoga/meditation retreats att Wrightsville Beach  In his later life, he was on a quest to observe to the present and appreciate life.  A wonderful person with a knowing sense of humor and unique wry grin that he never lost.  One of the original good guys
