He was born April 10, 1933 to the late Joe Brooks Jr. and Annie Zora Cox. Charles professed his faith in Jesus Christ when he was a youth as a member of The Historic Mount Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church on Baptist Hill and was there Baptized Into The Fold of Christ. He was a graduate of The Historic I.M.

Their union was further  blessed with the birth of their four children: Tony, Beverly, Debra and Sherry. Charles worked for Bell Helicopter until he retired in 1987.  He then opened his own motorcycle escort business : Brooks Escort Service which he operated  until he truly retired in 2012.  Charles was dedicated to his family, the Brooks Reunion and was a member of the  Panther City Lodge No. 159 of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Texas.

'' Crossing the Bar ''
 
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me !
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
 
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
 
Twilight and evening bell, and after that the dark !
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
 
And tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
 I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have cross'd the bar.
