Charles Carrol Tidwell, age 82, went to be with his LORD on December 23, 2013.
Charlie was born January 12, 1931 to Floyd C. Tidwell and Lois M. (Green) Tidwell in Granbury, Texas. He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters Willa Dean Morton and Jo Ann Christian, brother Ricky Tidwell and daughter Debra Zan Tidwell. He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Patricia Ann Tidwell, sons Charles Michael Tidwell and wife Suzie of Cresson, David A. Tidwell and wife Trudy of Granbury, Greg N. Jackson and wife Laura of San Angelo, 11 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren and many special relatives and life-long friends. Charlie joined the USAF in 1948, becoming a member of SAC serving as tail gunner on the B-52, B-36 and B-29. He attained the rank of Msgt by the time of his retirement in 1968. While in the military, he received his GED and attended college in England and at
the University of Texas at Austin. In 1971, he moved back to his home town of Granbury where he started CC Tidwell Stone and built much of the rock landscape around Lake Granbury. He later moved to a remote part of Erath County near Mingus before settling in San Angelo in 2003. In 2011, he established his permanent residence in the kingdom of God when he trusted Jesus Christ for salvation. "Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God-through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
There will be a celebration of Charlie's life at the VFW in Granbury on January 4 at 1:00 pm. A graveside service will be at 1:00 pm at Miller Creek Cemetery on Hwy 290 near Johnson City on January 12.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to College Hills Baptist Church for "The Reagan Stephenson Fund", 2102 Johnson St, San Angelo, Texas 76904

"Although I did not know Charlie for very long, he treated me as if I were one of the family :) I heard so many stories of what a crazy character he was, but..." Alexis Ivans (San Angelo, TX)
