Charles Burl Sexson II, 76, beloved son, husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle passed peacefully and in good company on the 23rd day of October 2022. He was born on August 21, 1946 in Indianapolis, Indiana to Maurice B. Sexson and Minnie R. Sexson. His life was full and well lived.
He is the husband of Sharon E. Sexson. They were married for fifty years. His love and adoration for her will continue throughout eternity.
From the outset, it was clear that Chuck had a bright future. He was an Eagle Scout and a proud supporter of the Boy Scouts of America. During his service in the United States Army, Big Red One, he was highly decorated. The picture above is Chuck receiving his first Silver Star. He generously supported veteran charities and his thoughts were always with the friends that made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. He was a proud graduate of Indiana University, cheering on the Hoosiers through thick and thin. As a company man for Marathon Oil, he traveled the world and is forever grateful for the lifelong friendships he made. He finished his career with Fortier, Inc, eventually becoming Chairman of the Board. He was very proud of Fortier, Inc., and all of his friends who work for Fortier, Inc. He would also proudly tell you that he was a member of multiple golf clubs, to which he made many friendships. Those clubs include: Indian Springs, Meadow Brook, Golf Club of Oklahoma, the Oaks and the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. In addition to golf, Chuck was accomplished in trap and skeet and had fond memories of his hunts from Chesapeake Bay to Cordoba, Argentina. Most importantly, he possessed a deep love for each of us and we possess a deep love for him. He will be greatly missed.
Chuck is survived by his wife Sharon E. Sexson of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; his son, Charles Burl Sexson III, his daughter in law Erin M. Sexson, his two grandchildren Robert W. Sexson and C. Thomas Sexson all of Nichols Hills, Oklahoma; his sister Florence M. Hackler of Indianapolis, Indiana; and many other family members and persons that he sincerely loved. Chuck will be joining his son, Joseph Fortier Sexson, in the warm embrace of our heavenly father.
Funeral arrangements will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make donations to veteran charities. Our fondest remembrances, may he rest in peace.
