Resided in: San Antonio, Texas

Robert Charles Hurley, known affectionately as “Charlie” passed away to be with the Lord February 23, 2023, at the age of 37.   Charlie was born in San Antonio, Texas September 5, 1985, to loving parents Bruce C. Hurley and Betty R. Ball Hurley.  

Charlie accepted Christ at an early age and had so much Love for our Lord. He was known to many of his neighbors as the “Gentle Giant” and he was thought of as being kind-hearted to those he knew there.  

Charlie was very talented and seemed to master anything he put his mind to, especially electronics and computer technology.  He was a very dedicated and focused employee and enjoyed nothing more than his job at E-Controls, where he was loved dearly by the staff.  He often said that it was the best job he ever had.   

Charlie is preceded in death by his father Bruce Charles Hurley. Left to cherish his memory is his dear mother Betty Hurley, Guardian Corene Dyer, Uncle J.O Hurley, and Sister Louise Oberlachner. 

Charlie was nothing short of extraordinary. His spirit and kindness will remain in the hearts and minds of all that had the pleasure of knowing him. Charlie will be missed dearly.  

A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Wednesday, March 22 at 1:00 p.m. at Wayside Chapel’s Fellowship Hall, located at 1705 Northwest Loop 410, in San Antonio, Texas. Charlie will be laid to rest at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery alongside his father, at a future date.

Memories Timeline


  1. This world lost a great at man. Chuck was one of my employees at Econtrols and although I have only known him for 4 months, he was a very good employee who always helped when given the chance. His smile will always be with me and the team. We’ll done good and faithful servant and I will see you again someday.

  2. Although I never got a chance to meet Charlie, I have heard a lot about him. From his description as a “Gentle Giant,” he must have had a tender heart. He loved Jesus and I heard he recently purchased the entire video series of The Chosen, which is a film series about the life of Christ. The message on his telephone ends with Charlie saying, “Just remember, Christ Loves You!” He must have been one very special young man, and now he is in the arms of his Savior. He loved his mother and she loved him, and he had a very special friend in Corene. Betty and Corene I am praying for you. Heavenly Father, we thank you that Charlie came to know you at an early age, and that he is not lost, but we know exactly where he is. Father, I pray for his mother, Betty, and for his Guardian, Corene. Lord I pray that you would comfort their hearts and give them your peace. Amen.

  3. CandleImageChuck was definitely a “gentle giant” he was one of the nicest souls I’ve ever met. I had the pleasure of working with him and helping him get his job at EControls. When we would ride in the car and he heard a Lauren Daigle song in the radio he pointed out to me how many number one hits she’s had, how long they were at #1 and how many Grammy’s she won as well as was nominated for. I used to think he was just fascinated by that particular artist but he could tell you facts about many things and different topics, he was a fountain of knowledge. I still can’t believe I won’t be seeing you walking down the street going to HEB anymore Chuck. Chuck loved his mother dearly, my sincerest condolences to the family. I hope to see you one day again and give you another super high High Five as we would do after your shift at ECONTROLS for a good days work. You’ll be missed dearly buddy. Be blessed.


  4. CandleImageMy favorite memory of you will be you telling me how much you love Anne Hathaway and how you celebrate her birthday every year! After 3 years you had finally started opening up more to me. You and your mom will always have a special place in my heart. You will be missed.

  5. CandleImageCharlie,
