October 26, 1960 - June 10, 2021

Charles “Charlie” Lee Sistrunk, 60, passed away Thursday, June 10, 2021 in his family home in Beaumont, TX. Charlie, a native of Beaumont, was born on October 26, 1960 to Malcolm Sistrunk, Sr. and Mary Lou Babin Sistrunk at Baptist Hospital. 

Charlie graduated from French High School in 1979. After high school, he started his career at the family business, Babin Machine Works Inc., as a third generation machinist. In time, with all his experience, he became the head of the Drill Press department.

Charlie channeled his creativity into small projects such as wood working and tinkering with model cars and motorcycles. He had a passion for motorsports, be it motorcycles, jet skis, cars, etc. Growing up, his brother Rod can recall Charlie asking,” well can we make it go faster?” He was the youngest of three brothers, and he would do everything he could to keep up with them. Charlie wasn’t only a motor head, but he loved sporting events. He was always down for going to an Astros game with his family.

Growing up in the family home, Charlie enjoyed visiting Uncle Ray and Aunt Joya next door along with his neighborhood friends, Larry and Reggie French. Every chance he had, he went to Louisiana to spend time with his Uncle TJ on the farm.

Survivors include his son, Casey Sistrunk and wife, Chelsea; brothers, Malcolm “Mac” Sistrunk, Jr., and wife, Tania; Rodney “Rod” Sistrunk; nephew, Ryan Sistrunk and wife, Whitney; niece, Kayla Sistrunk; mother of his son, Pattie Sistrunk; and numerous extended family members. 

Charlie was preceded in death by his parents; Mac Sr and Mary Lou; Aunt Joya and Uncle Ray, Uncle TJ and Aunt Christine; sister-in-law Debbie Sistrunk and father-in-law Sidney Caywood.

Charlie has been my brother-in-law seems like all my life. I had many, many years of hanging out during holidays and family events including fond memories of hanging out at Toledo Bend. Charlie is my friend and I will miss him very much. My heart and prayers go out to all Charlie's friends and family. Rest in peace my brother until we meet again,

Charlie was my Brother-n-Law for 31 years. I have so many memories. When Pattie would pack for the lake he would tell me that I needed to rent a bus because my car wasn't big enough for all of Pattie's stuff. Another time he said well, she down sized on packing so you will need a tractor trailer. He always made me laugh. He would say you Caywood girls are all the same...He would laugh and say "Hear Hold This" (inside joke). He would drive his prize Cadillac 2 hours to the lake house and visit for no more than an hour then head home. He'd say I love to drive, yep it was the CADILLAC. When he came over he would drive up and Rev his engine and wait for you to come out and talk to him. I always knew it was him. He never knocked on the door. It was Charlie for sure. He was known for his yams..he made them for Mom on all Holidays or get togethers. He loved to cook. The first Christmas he came to Mom & Dad's, Dad was showing him a gun and it went off and almost hit Charlie. He would remind Dad for years that He is his Son-n-Law and laugh and laugh. He had a humor side I saw all the time. He loved to pick on Pattie and I. Charlie you were a great brother-n-Law. You always treated me like your sister. I will so miss you. Till we meet again and dance in Heaven.
