Charles was born to Henry Joseph and Mary Ellen (Mueller) Henkey. Children of this family were Henry, Elizabeth, William John, Harry, Charles and Louis.

Charles married Mary Ellen Laney on his birthday, April 27, 1911 in St. Louis. They had four children, Edward, Harry Melvin, Dorothy and Alice. Charles and Mary Ellen split up for a time, during which she had two more children: twins Jacqueline and Clarence Sexton, Junior. Later, Charles and Mary Ellen were reunited.

He worked for many years for the Brown Shoe Company in St. Louis.

After his wife's death, Charles went to live with his son Harry's family. He enjoyed sitting out on the carport, going for walks, talking to his friends on the phone, watching The Charlotte Peters Show, and singing with a group at church.

His daughter, Dorothy once said to me, "He was the sweetest man."
