Charles Walter Cothren, 23, of Greer, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015 as a result of an automobile accident.

Born in Charlotte, North Carolina, he was the son of Charles E. Cothren & Gwen R. Esmaeel.

Left to cherish his memory are his incredibly special grandmother, Earlene Cothren, brother Adam Esmaeel, and the love of his life, fiancée, Ashley Medlin. He is also survived by multiple aunts, uncles, and cousins who will forever cherish their memories of growing up with Charles and watching him grow into a mature, loving, hardworking & charismatic young man.

Loved by many and described by all who knew him as “a friend to everyone,” Charles’s love of God was evidenced by his tremendous heart of kindness and compassion. He was selfless in every aspect of life. Every life he touched was changed for the better and he brought a light through his always smiling face, contagious laugh, and presence that will never be replaced.

Visitation and funeral services were planned for Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2015 at Sharon Seventh Day Adventist Church (920 N. Sharon Amity Rd) in Charlotte, North Carolina, where Charles spent his formable years attending school. The family received friends at a viewing from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. and a memorial service followed in the sanctuary at 3 p.m.
