Charlie T. Brock was born October 4, 1931 in Bainbridge, GA, the son of James Lawson Brock and Lottie Mae Ward Brock. He married Frankie Suggs and they made their home in the Pine Hill Community. Charlie was a member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church.
A strong work ethic was the foundation for a life that revolved around his family. Charlie worked as a farmer, a contractor and a tile mason before purchasing the Country Store when he was 56 years old. He then added biscuit maker to his resume. In fact, he claims to have made 700 biscuits in one day and customers still ask, “Who made these biscuits?” Charlie loved anything outdoors but especially vegetable gardening, growing fruit trees and muscadines, and mowing yards. He enjoyed traveling and remembered fondly trips to Alaska and Ireland. Charlie had a great sense of humor and was honest in his opinion so when he said, “I love you”, you knew he meant it.
Survivors include his wife of 64 years, Frankie Suggs Brock; his children Charlie Mack Brock and his wife, Mary, of Bainbridge, GA, Susan O’Neal and her husband, Steve, also of Bainbridge, GA, Turner Brock and his wife, Linda, of Abbeville, AL and Kathy Hill and her husband, Jerry, of Dothan, AL; his grandchildren, Casey & Kacey Poitevint, James & Robbi Ward, Libby Brock, Emily Brock, Mackenzie Hill, Bentley Hill, Madison Rhiannon Brock, MaeLee Brock, Chelsie & Dee Humphrey, Whitney & Neely Chason, Allie & Stephen Street, RomaDae & Aaron Heard, Eric & Karli Willis, Cameron & Caitlin O’Neal, Curtis O’Neal and Chris O’Neal; and his great-grandchildren, Lawson Singleton, Corbyn Thompson, Leighanna Ward, LD Humphrey, Molly Jaymes Humphrey, Benny Chason, Aero Street, Stevie Ann Street, Sawyer Heard, Emma Willis, Isla Willis, Taitym O’Neal and Hudson O’Neal.
