Charlie was born August 15, 1954 in Lamar, MO, to Jimmie Dale Combs and Dorothy Alma (Plain) Combs. Charlie was a graduate of Lamar High School.
Charlie learned his work ethic working with his parents at Jim and Charlie’s Market. Charlie had a long career with MODOT in Lamar, spending his last few years as a maintenance supervisor in Greenfield before retiring in 2015. He enjoyed the fellowship of the Elk’s Lodge, Metro and riding his Harley with the ROMEO’s. He had a passion for drag racing whether as a driver or a spectator.
