Charles was born January 1, 1944, in Hempstead, Texas, to Erwin and Frankie Fisbeck. He graduated from Galena Park High School in 1962, where he was a State Champion in high jump and ran track. He attended San Jacinto College in 1963 and would later graduate from Prairie View University.
Charles was drafted into the United States Army on October 12, 1966, and fulfilled his 2-year commitment while being stationed in Texas, Louisiana, and Maryland. He received his Honorable Discharge on October 11, 1968, as an E-4 Rank, with honors for sharpshooter in both M14 and .45 caliber. He was awarded the National Defense Metal for his service to our Country.
Following his time in the United States Army, Charles worked for Shell Oil and Gas and would later work for the Federal Aviation Administration as an Air Traffic Controller based out of the IAH Airport in Houston.

Charles was a jack-of-all-trades; he loved working on his classic cars, flying airplanes, home projects, his dogs, yardwork, and later in life playing golf with his family and friends.
