Services will be held at Hill Crest Funeral Home on Thursday, February 18, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel. Visitation will be held Wednesday, February 17 from 4:00-7:00 at Hill Crest.
Charlie went to be with God on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at approximately 1:00 p.m. losing his battle with C.O.P.D. He went to join his father Charles G. Ferguson, his mother Ernestine C. Ferguson and many other family members.
Charles was born and raised in Bossier City. He graduated from Bossier High School in 1964 and attended Northwestern University where he majored in Bourree and Ripple Wine for 2 years. Charlie had a wonderful sense of humor. His favorite things were fishing with his friends Bill and Ronnie and once a year Dove hunting. He was an excellent shot.
Charlie worked on the strip for most of his life. He worked for his boss and very good friends Pat Lombardino and wife Jenny for 30 years off and on. He met all of his very good friends on the strip and some were there until the very end. Thank you Bill and Shawn Beene for everything you did for Charlie.
Left to cherish his memory are his ex-wife and best friend Marphy Ferguson, many cousins, many good friends and especially his 3 chihuahuas, Romeo, Frankie and Tony.
