Condolences to the family, I am very sorry for your loss. The scriptures encourage us to call upon the name of God (Psalms 83:18) for the comfort we need in times like these.

Abigail Cowell, Houston, TX

Charles will be missed by so many, its a loss to all of us here in this world. But i rejoice knowing that he is with our Heavenly Father and that we will be there with him also some day! Praise God for another soul is with Him! We pray that knowing this will help the family cope with your loss.

Robert and Shirley Duke, Alvin, Texas

So sorry for your loss, you have my sympathy!

Lisa Shaw, Everson, PA

We were lucky enough to know Charlie through his family, Helen and Dovie. His radiant smile, his quiet dignity, his loving care of his family, always left us warm and happy for this close clan. He will be sorely missed. However I know the love of God will give Dovie and Helen the peace they seek and their many friends and loved ones will help give them comfort. Our prayers and care are with the Keprtas.

Maggie and Joe Muzikowski, Bellaire, TX

Charles was my older brother, I miss him deeply. He was always ready to help me in many ways, going all the way back to 1st Grade. Those who knew his loving heart will have an empty spot that only he filled. My sympathies go out to Helen, Dovie, and all who knew him. But I am most confident that he is now walking on golden streets and enjoying the salvation that he rejoiced in.

At some point after knowing Charlie a long time and being the recipient of his generous heart, I came to see Charlie as the hands and feet of Jesus. He would share a word he felt The Lord wanted him to share. Or he would give his time. Or he would give his money at a very much needed time. He was a good man and I believe heaven welcomed him as a good and faithful servant.

Kelli Darling, Humble, TX

Charlie was a good man, and did for others what he did not do for himself. We all kept saying, "take care of yourself" but one would catch him doing for others. He did always have that smile, and was proud to be able to help others even if in a small way. We knew it would happen this way, but we were never going to be ready for his "big day." He is resting in heaven now, and that is what is best for him. Hugs, to Charlie. Love, Dr. Joe and Phyllis

Dr. Joe and Phyllis V. Moody, Houston, TX

As his neighbor across the street, I will always remember Charlie for his big smile and big wave as he came in/out of his car and into his house whenever we saw each other. When we had a moment to talk, we always shared a laugh about some goings on in our neighborhood, or about how good his lawn always looked, or the amount of pecans he was going to get that year from his tree. He will be missed....

John & Sherryl Gorman, Houston, TX

Charles James Keprta passed away in his home in Houston, Texas on Monday, the 5th of October 2015, after years of battling heart disease. He was 74.
Charles “Charlie” was born on the 13th of February 1941, in East Bernard, Texas, to Charles A. and Amelia Vancek Keprta. He was the first of two sons. He served two years in the Army as an airplane mechanic based in Korea. Back home, Charlie took up the construction trade, working on projects from Corpus Christi to Seattle. During that time, he was proud to be a member of the crew that laid the structural steel for Houston’s Astrodome.
Despite that claim to fame, most people knew Charlie for his servant’s heart. Whether it was bringing someone a meal unexpectedly, pressing a small pile of cash into a college student’s hand for gas money on a road trip, or his loving care of Helen, he was known for taking care of others more than himself.
Charlie is survived by his life-long companion and ex-wife, Helen; daughter, Dovie (Todd) Crouse; and brother, Robert (Ophea) Keprta. He was preceded in death by his parents.
A memorial service will be held at ten o’clock in the morning on Saturday, the 10th of October, at the Bradshaw-Carter Home, 1734 W. Alabama Street in Houston.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the American Heart Association.
