Charles Moses Gardner passed away at 65 on December 28, 2021, surrounded by family.

Charlie was born on February 15, 1956, in Chattanooga. He was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas Allen Gardner Sr. and Mary Leavell Gardner. Charlie is survived by his children, Kian and Kyla, his three brothers Tommy, Chris, and Ellis, as well as many nieces and nephews who loved him dearly.

Charlie was raised on Signal Mountain and attended the McCallie School for Boys in Chattanooga. He later went on to study at the University of Arkansas. He recently retired from a long and successful career as a civil engineer, where he coordinated large construction projects. Charlie shared many of his life experiences through two books he authored, Always Remember This Moment and I Got This. Charlie was known by all who knew him as a kind-hearted and loving father who gave back to his community, such as serving as a Half Moon Bay School Board chairman and helping countless individuals along his journey. Charlie treasured his family, from east to west coast, and left a lasting impact on everyone he encountered. He was a devout Christian who lived life to his fullest each and every day. 

There will be a memorial service to celebrate Charlie’s life at 12 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 31, at The Point Church (Signal Mountain Baptist), located at 939 Ridgeway Ave, Signal Mountain, Tn.
