Charles Rasor was born on January 14, 1958, in Garland, Texas. He transitioned on April 9, 2020, in Plano, Texas.
Charlie, as he was affectionately regarded, graduated from North Garland High School in 1976. Upon graduation, he began his career with Kraft Foods in Garland and worked there while putting himself through college at Richland Community College. He went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and Professional Administration from the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) in 1981. After working at Kraft for more than 20 years and moving up in the company, Charlie sought more opportunity for advancement. The family then moved to Franklin, Tennessee where he worked for International Diverse Foods in Nashville, Tennessee. When this company was bought out, the family moved to Birmingham, Alabama and Charlie began a new career in procurement at Regions Bank. After another buyout, Charlie moved back to Texas and worked as a consultant for Accenture. Most recently, he worked for the Freeman Company as Senior Director of Procurement.
While at Kraft, Charlie met the love of his life, Glynn, who worked at Kraft during the summer. The two united in holy matrimony on May 16, 1981. To their union, three beautiful children were nurtured and loved. Charlie and Glynn remained united for almost 39 years until his transition.
Among many hobbies, Charlie delighted in exploring new restaurants and discovering good wines. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing (especially with his grandson, Ryder), bird watching, and music. While his daughters expanded his musical repertoire, it was ZZ Top, Led Zepplin, or the Aggie War Hymn that never failed to make Charlie crank up the volume just a bit too much. With the television remote at home, or his music stick in the truck, Charlie was always in total control.
He was a member of First United Methodist Church in Garland, Texas.
Charlie was a strong-willed, stubborn, and loving man. His generosity and loyalty were remarkable, and he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Edwin Rasor and Joyce Hyman Rasor. Those left to cherish precious memories include his children: Lauren Rasor, Kelsey Rasor, and Jocelyn Rasor; grandson, Ryder Vega; brother, Allan Rasor; niece, Sabrina LaTorre; nephew, Randy Rasor; and a host of other relatives and friends.
