Charles was born June 13, 1951, in Seligman, Missouri to Benson and Merle Byler.  He lived in Amarillo for more than 40 years.
Charlie was a carpenter by trade.  He was meticulous with his craft.  The last 40 years he was a Commercial Site Superintendent.  Charlie was extremely proud of his position and his ability to complete his projects within the required deadlines.  Charlie was employed by Tri-State General Contracting at the time of his death.  The Tri-State employees and Charlie considered each other family.  Charlie was a successful superintendent on projects for City of Amarillo, Amarillo ISD, Pantex, United States Postal Service, Clarendon College, Dallam County, Cannon AFB, Dyess AFB, Texas Dept of Transportation and so many more.  Charlie was particularly proud of being a part of the team at Pantex and a part of their mission on national defense.  On top of his full time position with Tri-State, he had a very successful personal business Charles Byler remodeling.
Charles loved hot rods and racing. During his spare time, he was constantly working on his pride and joy, a 1972 Ford F250 that was his dads.  Just like everything he did, it also had to be perfect!
Charles was a Christian.
Survivors include his significant other, Darlene McCormick, of Amarillo; his daughter, Shanna Cole and husband Cliff, of North Little Rock, Arkansas; his two sons, Robby Byler, of North Little Rock, Arkansas and Greg Byler and wife Tish, of Amarillo; two brothers, J.C.

    I spent many hours and days escorting Charlie as he worked on so many projects at Pantex over the years. He was always ready with a smile, kind word, and a great conversation….the plant is much better place for the effort Charlie put into his work there. He will be missed…

    I met Charlie in 1986 and we worked on many commercial construction projects together. He was always a stand up guy – honest and forthright. He was always smiling! I will miss him.
