Charles Joseph Sanfilippo, Jr. was born in Mercedes, TX to Charlie and Nona Mae Sanfilippo on January 25, 1934. As he rested peacefully at home with his wife, Tina, by his side, he was called to join the Lord on September 24, 2016.

A product of the Rio Grande Valley, Charles attended high school in Harlingen playing varsity baseball and alto saxophone.
