Charles Gilmore was born in Batesville, Indiana to Norman Gilmore and Estelle Fremiel on October 14, 1956. He married Sandra Gilmore on May 7, 1993. He was a proud oil field worker where he put in nearly 50 years of work. He was a loyal employee working for Hooks, BNC Well Service, GP Guinness, West Tex Services, Turner Energy, and Nexoil. His co- workers nicknamed him “Happy Gilmore” and “Smiley” because of his positive attitude and infectious smile. Charles had a great sense of humor and a cheerful personality that was sure to uplift anyone’s mood. Charles was a generous man and was willing to give the shirt off of his back. Everyone who knew Charles knew he was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan and enjoyed watching wrestling, and traveling. But nothing brought more joy to Charles’s life than his family. Charles will be greatly missed by his family, many friends, and his bonus grand baby-sitting children.
