Tombstone Tuesday: Charles Guokas III, 1927-1999

Charles Peter Guokas III was my uncle, my mother's brother. He was born February 6, 1927 in Harris County, Texas, the oldest of Charles Peter Guokas Jr. and Sarah Melzina Wolfe's three children. He married Barbara Ann Glaze, a nurse from Tyler, Texas, in 1962 - he was 33, she was 28. Sadly, Aunt Barbara got cancer and passed away March 25, 1980. They had no children. Charles married Mary Ann Russell in Shelby County, Texas, around June 20, 1981; they also had no children. Uncle Charles passed away May 27, 1999, in Tyler, Texas. He is buried at the Cathedral in the Pines Cemetery there.
