Charles “Turk” Perry Blackmon, age 50, of Indian Land, SC and formerly of Orangeburg, SC passed away on September 23, 2020. Charles was born on May 19, 1970 to the late Dr. Benjamin B. Blackmon, Sr. and Patricia K. Blackmon.
Charles was an assistant Golf Professional and buyer for Carolina Salvage. He was an avid Clemson Tiger fan since the age of 2 and has been an avid golfer, devoted husband, father and friend. He was a BBQ extraordinaire. He loved being outdoors whether it was watching football, playing golf, shooting guns, or fishing.
You can remember Charles for his unforgettable laugh and knew that he never met a stranger. He always had a variable to throw into a situation even if you did not ask for it. One of his greatest achievements was that he was 14 years sober from alcohol.
He adored his wife and children and would sacrifice everything for them. He was known for literally giving you the shirt off his back. He was easy to make friends and it showed throughout every phase of his life. He always made sure to keep in touch with each and everyone. He was a huge support system for everyone in his “village”, adults and children alike.
