  1. Another fine old ball player from back in the 70’s. How he will be missed by his family I am sure. I offer our prayers and sympathy to you from our church and me as their pastor. He was always a gentleman and gentle man on and off the ball field. Bro. Nick Peters, Pastor of First Baptist of Carencro, LA.

  2. Been knowing Charles Brock since I started playing ball at 5 years old! He was a good friend to a lot of people in Redhead/Ebro and you could trust he had their best interest in his heart R.I.P. Mr Brock job well done!
