Charlie was born on June 11, 1994, in DeRidder,
to Charles “Chipmunk” and Amanda Hollis Emerson, Jr., and was pulled early from this life following a tragic accident on June 19, 2012, in Simpson. He was a member of Oak Forest Baptist Church. Charlie loved all sports, four-wheeler riding, good
friends and family. He never met a stranger, never made an enemy. Charlie loved to sing and will be loved and cherished by all.
Left to cherish the many blessed memories Charlie leaves behind will be his parents; twin sister, Whitley
Emerson; one brother, Dillin Emerson; a nephew on the way, along with many extended family members and numerous great friends.
The family would like to express their gratitude to all first responders involved for the support
