Charles L. Klock Jr., otherwise known as Bubba, Tick, Ticki, Tick Tock, passed away on January 13, 2022 at his home in Kountze, Texas. Charles was a resident of the Golden Triangle nearly all his life. He was born on August 21, 1955 in Beaumont, Texas. In 1973, he graduated from French High. Shortly thereafter, in 1974, he married the love of his life and high school sweetheart, Sheila Havens. He and she trained to be missionaries for several years at Baptist Bible Translators Institute, in Duncan, OK. After returning to Beaumont, Charles took a job with the United States Post Office. He worked with the post office for 40 years before retiring in 2011. Charles spent 20 years serving as a pastor at Grace Bible Church (formerly Grace Bible Fellowship) in Vidor, Texas.
No one who knew Charles can deny his passion for spreading the gospel of Christ. He spent his life studying God’s Word, praying with hurting people, and teaching the Bible. He carried out the great commission in such a way that his loved ones have complete security in knowing that he is present with the Lord today.
His memory will be cherished and kept alive by his wife; Sheila Havens Klock, daughter Jennifer Nichols and her husband Chris Nichols, daughter Joni Ruiz and her husband Josh Ruiz, grandchildren; Kyle Nichols, Kayla Nichols, Libba Ruiz and Lenox Ruiz.
