Charlie was born in Portsmouth, VA, and he grew up in Chesapeake, VA attending Indian River Baptist. He was an Eagle Scout and a graduate of Great Bridge High School in 1967.  After serving in United States Naval Air, he continued his career in Federal Service for 40+ years, culminating in his career as the Lead Logistic Management Specialist for Aircrew Escape Systems.

Charlie attended Temple Baptist in Chesapeake, VA. He was also instrumental in the founding and building of Wayside Baptist Church, in Chesapeake, VA where he was the music leader. Since he moved to Morehead City in 1995, he was a member of Temple Baptist Church for 27 years and served as an Ordained Deacon, and was also very active in the music program, where he established the instrumental ensemble, and enjoyed singing solos. Charlie shared his love for Christ with everyone he knew, was always ready to help anyone in need and he of course never met a stranger. He will be greatly missed by the numerous lives he impacted.

Always one to stay busy, Charlie enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family. Charlie was an accomplished mechanic and enjoyed working on engines, with is knowledge he could fix just about anything. Being a jack of all trades, there wasn’t anything he couldn’t tackle with ease and fix with perfection.

He is survived by the love of his life for fifty-five years and high school sweetheart, Carol Sharp Collier; son, Charles Lee Collier Jr. of Morehead City; daughter, Elizabeth Collier Scott (Robert Edward Jr.) of Portsmouth, VA; grandchildren, Tyler Colby, Charles Lee III (Corinthian), David Kyle, Jacob Dean, Nelson Boyd, Robert Edward III, and Cora Elizabeth; great-grandchildren, Addison Elizabeth, Nathan Lee, Rowan Lee, and Emilia Rin; his brothers, Glenn Edward Collier of Ellerslie, GA and Richard Selwyn Collier (Ruby) of Tallassee, AL; 6 sisters-in-law; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, William Harvey Taunton and Aura Baker Taunton; paternal grandparents, Paul Edward Collier Sr. and Lelia Armistead Collier; and his parents, Paul Edward Collier Jr. and Helen Taunton Collier.
