Charlie Quinn, Troup, TX,  passed away Tuesday, December 2, 2014 at his residence. He was born October 9, 1943 in Galveston to the late Charles A. and Juanita Quinn.

Charley had a huge reputation within Texas  team roping circles as a winner and fierce competitor. He participated with every roping association within his area and had majors wins throughout the United States. As recently as 2012 he placed in the #12 and #13 World Series Finales in 2012 held in Las Vegas, NV. Charley was loved by all and his bubbly personality always improved every competition. He enjoyed embarrassing his friends with big bear hugs and expressions of affection. Recently he had acquired a new activity and was avidly pursing karate. Folks we lost a really good one when we lost Charley, and to quote many of his parntners that Charley embarrassed with his affection, heard at the funeral, “ I loved that guy" .
