Charles Sam “Charlie” Middleton was born on October 17, 1943, to the late Seaman and Lula Lee Middleton in Cross, SC. He entered eternal rest on Sunday, January 7, 2024, at White Oaks Manor in Charleston. SC.

Charles grew up in Cross, SC and attended Orangeburg County public schools. Later in life, he became a member of Greater St Paul United Methodist Church in Cross, SC. He is preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Harrison “Rusher" Middleton; a sister, Alice “Dot” Middleton Peguese; and two nephews, Roscoe Mark Middleton and Carl Ravenell.

Charles spent most of his life as a construction worker and rod buster with Traylor Brother Construction Company of North Charleston, SC. He was also employed with Belmont Racetrack but his real love was farming. He kept a garden year-round and his favorite thing to grow was sugar cane.
