November 26, 1947 – July 3, 2021
Charles Edward Musick, 73, a well-loved carpenter, who worked with the Carpenters Local #551 of Houston and other surrounding areas, including New Orleans, passed away on July 3 in Brookshire, Texas.
He absolutely loved being a carpenter and considered himself an artist in his own right. With countless hours invested into each project, he came to love his colleagues and as a result, he ended up forging a strong bond and brotherhood with many of them throughout his years of service.
Known for being a perfectionist, some of his colleagues would often say that they knew if they worked with Charlie on a job, that they would have to come correct or … “Hit The Road, Jack!” If the job that he was working on was not up to par, he would simply finish it himself to ensure that it was properly carried out in a prompt and professional manner.
On Facebook, many of his colleagues mourned his loss. Terry Spears wrote, “We lost another good carpenter. Our brother Charlie Musick has gone to be with the Lord. My deepest condolences to his family. May the Lord give them strength and comfort in this difficult time. You will be missed but not forgotten Charlie!”
David Cullins wrote, “I had the privilege of working with Charles several times. Not only a good carpenter but a GREAT individual as well—he was a great man. It’s extremely upsetting to me how many members we’ve been losing lately. It really breaks my heart to think of all the ones that I know that didn’t live long enough to enjoy their retirement.
Tim Scanio wrote, “Oh no, I loved working with Charlie here and in Houston, such a good guy!”
Charlie’s last name was Musick and he really loved music of all sorts. His favorite singer was Tina Turner. Well, what’s ironic or divine is that his wife Van is a professional singer with a melodious voice. Her claim to fame is that she is a famous Tina Turner impersonator. Being the multi-talented gentleman that he was, Charlie would serve and assist as the sound engineer for many of her gigs and shows.
Charlie owned and rode Kawasaki motorcycles too. Other hobbies that he loved were making model airplanes and building classic cars like old Mustangs and old school Chevys and Pontiacs.
Charlie was a Christian who loved joining with his beautiful wife Vantrese, to pray to The Lord each day. His wife would like to give a special thanks to the Carpenters of Houston and surrounding areas for their love and respect shown to Charlie.
