Charles was born in 1929 in Texon, Regan County, Texas to Robert Hugh Pitzer and Eleanor (Nell) Pauline Smryl. He grew up in Lake Charles, Louisiana where he excelled in football, baseball and basketball. He played football for McNeese State University. Charles ended up in Arlington, Texas where he met the love of his life, Madge Marie Tooke. They were married in December of 1952. He was instrumental in starting the Boys Club of Arlington, the Boxing Club and was involved in the 2030 Club. He was a member of First Baptist Church of Arlington and taught Sunday school there. An entrepreneur, he had many successful businesses over the span of his life. Most of them involved some sort of construction work or restaurants. He was well known for Charlies Barbeque.

Charles Ray had a zest for live and lived it to the fullest. He loved being able to entertain and have all of his friends and family around him. He will be dearly missed by all.
At the end of the day, his message to us all, is that he did it God’s way.

He was preceded in death by his parents; daughter, Elisa Ann Pitzer; and son, Charles Ray Pitzer Jr.
