Charles Rackley

May 22, 1936 — July 12, 2020

Charles Rackley went to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday July 12, 2020. He was a Christian and was baptized at young age and knew the Lord throughout his life. He was a proud member of The Pilgrim's of Faith Sunday school class at Trinity Baptist, Kerrville, Texas.\r\n\r\nHe was born to Martha and Louis Rackley at Emhouse, Texas after two sisters on May 22, 1936. His sisters Patsy and Shirley, complained that they had to chop cotton while he only drove the tractor. He thought he would follow in his Dad's footsteps and be a farmer until his Ag teacher insisted he go to college for at least one year. He was the Salutorian of his class at Plainview High School and graduated with honors from Texas Tech with a Masters in Accounting and became a CPA. He was an officer in the Air Force for four years serving at Lincoln, Nebraska. Upon leaving the military he moved to Dallas and became an accountant for a major accounting firm until he was hired by one of his Savings and Loan clients. He continued to advance after a move to San Antonio where he became Executive Vice President of Alamo Savings. He was very involved in his field, serving as President of the Central Texas Financial Managers and was a founding member and President of the Airport Rotary and was a Paul Harris Fellow.\r\n\r\nCharlie loved to hunt and was a member of the American Sportsman Hunting Club and every year he would pack up his family in his Jeep and his pop up trailer and head out to various ranches to hunt. He loved the outdoors and it was his dream to live in the country. He found 20 acres surrounded by ranches in the Upper Turtle Creek area, designed and built a home among his neighbors, and enjoyed many happy times with his Los Encinos family.\r\n\r\nHe was always a sports fan who never gave up on the Cowboys. He loved supporting his Spurs and never missed watching a game.\r\n\r\nHe loved to travel and went on many trips and cruises. He and his wife, Jane traveled to many foreign countries and states. They have a special group of former Avon Managers that would take a cruise with them each year.\r\n\r\nHe was a property manager in his later years and loved joining the family with his stories.\r\n\r\nCharles is survived by his wife Jane, whom he married on April 15th 1989 (always remembered their anniversary) and his two sons and wives, Randy and Penny, Mark and Kim Rackley and two "bonus sons" and wives, Patrick and Lorie and Paul and Joan Hohman. These four sons have made him a grandfather 12 times through births, marriage and adoptions. He was not a gregarious man, but he loved his family and was very proud of them. He was an accountant and he even had the income tax mailed the day before he went to heaven.\r\n\r\nGraveside services will be held privately. A memorial service will be held at 10:30 AM, Saturday, September 5, 2020 at Trinity Baptist Church.\r\n\r\nMemorials may be made to Trinity Baptist Church, Blessed to Blessed Fund or Church Unlimited, 7451 Bay Area Dr., Corpus Christi, Texas 78415.
