Charles was born in Person County on June 11, 1951, the son of the late Elvin William Reaves, Sr. and Frances Lunsford Reaves. He was the owner and operator of C.R. Reaves Electrical Service and was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He loved his family and on occasion loved to fish with his grandsons.

During his sickness, he grew to like the History and Smithsonian channels along with crime tv and Judge Judy. He also kept up with current politics and was a proud American and Trump supporter. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by a brother Elvin William "Billy" Reaves, Jr. and three sisters, Kathy Wilson, Frances "Tootie" Brooks and Peggy Futrell.
