Charles Finley

May 21, 1977 – July 5, 2014

Our beloved Charles Daniel Finley III, 37, was received into the Lord’s arms on Saturday, July 5, 2014.

He was born May 21, 1977, in Berkeley, Calif. Charles was a man with a beautiful smile and a big heart. He was a dedicated father, a loving son, a great brother, uncle, and a wonderful friend. He was an inspiration to many.

Charles graduated from Fairfield High School, attended Solano Community College and went on to pursue a degree in criminal justice at the University of Phoenix.

He enjoyed drawing, sports, music, video games and spending time with family.

Charles is survived by his loving companion, Brandy Odegard; daughters, Allana and Savannah; son, Charles Daniel Finley IV; parents, Israel and Paula Vargas; siblings, Angela and Jermaine Vargas and Nicole and Aaron Finley; and a host of family and friends. Charles will remain in our hearts forever and be deeply missed by all.

His father, C.D. Finley Jr., preceded him in death.

Public viewing will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 15, 2014, at Byran-Braker Funeral Home, 1850 W. Texas St., Fairfield, Calif. Memorial services will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, July 16, 2014, at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, 1735 Enterprise Drive, Fairfield, Calif.

Arrangements under the care of Bryan-Braker, www.bryanbraker.com.

    I am very sad to hear about the loss Charles' family is going through right now. Charles worked in what I remember to be the 1st cell phone store we had in ff next to the veterinarian. He worked jobs in the mall as well, when it was hot in the 1990's. We also attended classes at Solano and university of phoenix at the same time, so we never stopped bumping into each other.He was a quiet guy who always spoke and acknowledged me. He was especially proud to be a father and whenever we spoke, we shared stories of relationships and children. When I was in the darkest place, he would encourage me by saying how much he wanted to be a father and how he would never abandon his children. When I picture Charles, I see him in the classic leather trench coat, and a huge smile! He always had a smile. I hope his children will remember the best of Charles. May he forever rest in paradise.
