Charles was born April 29, 1968 in Ada, OK. He graduated from Stillwater High School in 1986 and shortly after he joined the Navy, who in return, put him through college. He was proud to serve his country. Charles was a black belt in Taekwondo. He loved music and to spend time with his friends, sing karaoke and he loved to entertain. (His impression of Rodney Dangerfield was spot on.) He never met a stranger and could make a friend wherever he went. He truly lived his life on his terms and was always there to help a friend when they were down. His heart was big and his loyalty was even greater. If you needed a shoulder to cry on or the best hug, he would be the first to offer one up. He was a father, a brother, a son, an uncle, a grandpa and always a true friend.
Charles was preceded in death by all of his grandparents, his stepfather and his brother, William Lee Hornberger, Jr.
He is survived by his Mother, Barbara Baldwin; Father, William Lee Hornberger, Sr., his 2 brothers, his 6 children, his grandkids, nieces, nephews, many friends and his beloved dog, Beau.
