Avery "Squeaky" Charles

June 26, 1940 - June 07, 2024


Avery “Squeaky” Charles was born to Teresa May and Avery C. Charles Sr. on July 26, 1940, in Chiloquin, Oregon. The oldest son of 17 brothers and sisters with a sense of humor who liked to tease everyone, often by saying something like, “hey, is that your man? Or he keeps calling me!”

He had a way of speaking unfiltered with that intense raw, rah funny sense of humor that not only made him the center of attention, but he was unafraid to be himself. Entering a room like the Queen he was with the best walk around that would surely make your head turn. During family gatherings uncle would say in his feisty mean loving voice he would jokingly say, “Oh no we are not hugging now!” Uncle would leave messages on his niece’s phone’s giving them their own names like, “Lola Luna, Nickalena, Squitchy, Bit$h”

Adored by his family always being true to his on nature, he was also sure to tell his nieces, “Listen to your uncle now!” giving the best advice on how to live,” make sure that you build a life and a home for yourself. Have your last will testament in place.” There are many moments that were filled with by his loving presents especially on the porch having a cup of coffee and smoking a cig telling and listening to stories with family and friends enjoying the bluejay’s flying around and plants blooming
at his sister Barb’s during the summer.

Some recall the hosted parties he held, known as the “beer” stories have everyone in Lummi saying, “Squeaky’s parties are legendary!” Squeaky had a love for music, there was a time when he went with his sister Barb on a road trip, traveling with one of his favorite rock ‘n’ roll singers the great Fats Domino. He is known for having a playlist to include Tina Turner, B.B.King, and Dinah Washington.

Traveling to the casino, or yard sales and secondhand stores looking for Japanese art, tea pot sets, or silk were his favorite things to do aside from watching his ole time television show M.A.S.H.

Carrying his zestful years of wisdom forward to his family, his love and time was shared especially with his great-grand nieces and nephews, he will be deeply missed but forever in our hearts.

He is preceded in death by his mate John; his grandparents Sedonia Rossi and John May; his mother Teresa May and father Avery Charles Sr.; his siblings Marie “Tuney” Oats, Terry Charles, Pamela Moore, Yvonne Miller Jefferson Moore, Carlette Tupper Moore, and Nikki Jo Moore.

He is survived by his sisters Barbara Charles, Sandra Charles, Sharon Solomon, Karen Halford, Joni Martin, Andrea Jefferson, Adrian Jefferson-Ayosa and Teresa Jefferson. His brothers Dewey Moore and Patrick Jefferson. Many nieces, nephews, great-grand nieces and nephews.

One smile can’t change the world, but your smile changed mine.
