Charles “Charlie” Edwin Flowers, age 75, passed away on January 23, 2022, at Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah after an extended illness. The Wayne County native was born on November 20, 1946, to David M Flowers and Carolyn (Flowers) Anderson. At a young age, he moved to Tattnall County where he would make his home his entire life. Many will remember Charles and Betty running the Amoco station in Reidsville for many years. One of the highlights of his years in the service station was when Kenny Rogers stopped in for fuel on his way to the next venue. After closing the station Charlie, as he was known to those in corrections, would go on to work a career with the Georgia Department of Corrections and retire with over 20 years of service to the state. Never one to mince words, Charles would always speak his mind and those around him never had to question his position or where they stood with him. In his free time his favorite hobby was fishing the Ohoopee River. No fishing trip was complete unless he was able to have at least one cold beer. He also loved the thrill of the hunt in the woods in and around Tattnall County. A man that lived life to the fullest and was always a man of his word; Charlie will be dearly missed by all who knew him. He is preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Wayne Flowers; a sister, Joyce Roberson; and a granddaughter, Brooke Flowers.
Left to cherish memories of a life well lived is his wife of nearly 56 years, Betty Flowers of Reidsville; two sons, Bobby Flowers of Hiawassee and Danny (Jennifer) Flowers of Reidsville; three brothers, David Flowers, Jr. of Cobbtown, Emory (Ronni) Flowers of Savannah, and Wade Flowers of Brooklet; a sister, June (Bill) McMillian of Savannah; five grandchildren, Jerrod Flowers of Reidsville, Justin Flowers of Reidsville, Kalei Flowers of Statesboro, Morgan Flowers of Reidsville, and Caleb Flowers of Uvalda; two great grandchildren, Riley Flowers of Cobbtown and Abigail Flowers of Uvalda; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends also survive.
In keeping with Charles’ wishes, no formal services will be held.
