Charles Edwin Hallmark, also known as Charlie, passed away Saturday, July 20, 2019, in Marble Falls, Texas, at the age of 72. He was born on January 9, 1947, in Llano, Texas, to Mix and Norma Hallmark.
Charles married Barbara Sue Faught on July 8, 1966. They were married for 53 years and resided in Tow, Texas.
Charles was employed as a dairy salesman for Gandy’s Dairies, owned by Dean’s Foods, for 30 years. He was known by all as “The Gandy Man.” He enjoyed sharing eggnog and ice cream with his family, friends, and community. His strong work ethic, determination, and friendly demeanor built his route to be one of the top ten routes for the company. Dean Foods tried many times to promote Charles, but he passed on these promotions due to his love for life on Lake Buchanan.
Charles was a friendly and kind man with an infectious laugh that people were drawn to. He had the heart of a servant. He could often be found helping neighbors, friends, or those in need with projects or investing in young adults and encouraging them to get an education.
He enjoyed deer hunting, fishing, playing dominoes and cards, and spending time with his family and friends.
Charles was preceded in death by parents, Vonnie Mix Hallmark and Norma LaFe Key Hallmark; sister, Alice Mae Leach; brother James Doyle Hallmark; and brother-in-law, William Leach.
