Charles and his wife April, a former Miss Coppell High School, will celebrate 20 years of marriage July 5, 2023. April taught elementary school for 20 years. They have two daughters: Riley, 18, and Audrey, 14. 


Charles spends his free time at home in Argyle or on their Ranch in Nocona, Texas. 

"My wife and kids will tell you that I have to be doing something, he doesn't ever sit still and just watches TV! I like to keep myself busy doing anything outside around the house or now at the Ranch.  It seems that most of my time is spent mowing, cleaning or organizing my garage."
