Charles D. Collier, age 68, passed away on Monday, September 2, 2019. He was born in Crescent, Oklahoma on September 6, 1950 to Marvin Gatewood Collier and Elizabeth Smith Collier. He was married for 49 years to his high school sweetheart and love of his life, Lynda Moose Collier. He is survived by his wife, his two daughters, Christina Melinda Collier and Misty Collier Marlowe, his son-in-law, Jeremy Marlowe, and his soon-to-arrive grandson, Wyatt Charles Marlowe. He is also survived by his brother and one of his best friends, James Collier, and his sister, Beverly Moses. In addition to his immediate family, Charles had a large extended family and network of friends too numerous to mention each by name. He was retired from medical equipment sales and service for several years and spent most days with his wife, family, and friends, enjoying his retirement and always helping others. Charles was an extraordinary man who deeply affected everyone who was lucky enough to know him. His love for his family and friends manifested itself through tangible actions every day. He didn’t just say he loved you—he showed it too. He was completely devoted to his wife and family, strong and unwavering in his beliefs and values, and so loving and compassionate.

Linda, Bobby and I are so shocked and saddened to hear of Charles passing.
He was a good friend to us and we have many good memories of times spent with you and your family. Please know all of you are in our prayers and we love you.
Charles brought such joy to our home whenever he would stay over. He was my husband’s boss, but more importantly, he was our family’s dear friend. The deep love he had for his family always was apparent in his conversations and joy that would show on his face whenever he talked with them or about them. Our family was shown so much hospitality in his home whenever we would go to visit. It was a
lways an adventure for us to be at his home. Who knew what new toy he would have or share! My heart goes out to you, Lynda, Christy and Misty and to your families. Sending love, hugs and prayers for comfort and strength. He was a good man.
Sorry for your loss. Charles was a one of a kind and a dying breed of a hard working man who loved his family more than anything. As a friend or neighbor he would truly give you his shirt off his back to help you. God bless and RIP my friend. You will be truly be missed, but not forgotten.
