  Charles Glenn Poarch Sr. was born Sept. 9, 1937 in Corsicana, Texas and passed away on July 2, 2019 in Globe. He was the son of Paul Jackson Poarch and Valley Aline Gray.

   Charlie was preceded in death by his two sons, Charles Glenn (Jill) Poarch Jr. who passed away in August 2018 and William Jackson Poarch who passed away Feb. 28, 1981; brother, Billy Poarch; and sister, Doris Flores.  He is survived by his other two sons, Cody Wayne (Tiffany) Poarch and Justin (Brenda) Poarch; his sister, Rosalee Joy; grandchildren, Heather  Poarch, Trisha Poarch Johnson, Billy Jack (Willy) Poarch, Terrell Poarch, Brent Poarch, Peter Poarch, Rianna Poarch, Cierra Poarch, Kyle Wager and Brady Wager; 17 great-grandchildren and seven great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

  Charlie lived in Globe in his younger days before moving to Hayden, where he graduated from Hayden High School in 1955. Charlie married Patsy Alene Miller in 1955 and they had four children.

  He loved singing, fishing and camping. He went into the Army Reserves, went to barber school and then started working at Kennecott Mines where he became an Electrical Supervisor. When he retired, he opened his own barber shop in Kearny, where he loved to cut hair and enjoyed spending time socializing with the residents.

  Charlie is mostly known for his singing and his karaoke. He used to have a country western band, with which he shared his love of music with his two sons, Charlie Jr. and Billy (Poncho), named ‘The Outcasts’ and played at the Sunset Lounge, Copper Hills, Elks Lodge, GKI and various other venues. This gave him an opportunity to share his beautiful music with his friends and family, and bring camaraderie to everyone around him.

  A celebration of life will be held in Kearny at the Elks Lodge on July 27, at 5 p.m.
