Born the youngest son of Alex and Eva Blanton on June 20, 1956, Charles lived his young life in Chesterfield, Virginia.

Charles spent many years enjoying his hobbies of go-kart racing and bass fishing. He was a self-taught guitar player and enjoyed playing and singing with a group of friends. As Charles spent more time at home, he adored feeding and observing the hummingbirds and caring for his beloved cats. In addition, Charles was a loving and devoted father and grandfather.
Left to cherish his memory are his loving partner, Betty Blanton; his daughter Tammi Blanton; his sons: Danny Bartholomew (Stephanie) and William Bartholomew, Jr. (Charissa); and his grandchildren, Jacob Shelton, and Danni Brooke Bartholomew.
