Charles Andrew Eastwood, Jr.

Charles Andrew Eastwood, Jr., a hardworking and dedicated man, peacefully passed away on November 2, 2023, at the age of 85 in his home in Schriever, LA. Born on May 5, 1938, in Kansas City, KS, Charles lived a life filled with unwavering determination and a deep love for his family.


Charles is survived by his sons, Robert Eastwood and wife Carol; Jeff Eastwood; brother, David Eastwood and wife, Irene and their sons, Warren and Wesley; grandchildren; Paul and wife Mandi, Dr. James Baggs Eastwood and wife Sarah, Melissa McNeely and husband Luke, Mark Eastwood, Jenna Eastwood and husband Heath Hill, Jonathan, Emily, Amy Eastwood; great grandchildren, Galen, Miles, Bronwen, Jolie, Isaiah, and Emmitt.


Charles is preceded in death by his son, Charles Andew Eastwood III; first wife, Kitty Sue Pollard Eastwood, and second wife Mildred Ford; grandson, Philip Charles Eastwood; parents, Charles Andrew Eastwood, Sr. and Enda Mae Stranathan Eastwood.


Throughout his life, Charles was known for his strong work ethic. He devoted himself to supporting his family by holding multiple jobs simultaneously, always striving to provide a comfortable life for his loved ones. Among his work experiences, he particularly cherished his years in the oilfields, serving as a motorman for ODECO. Charles found joy and satisfaction during his time on the John Hayward and the Mr. Charlie rigs, working seven days on and seven days off. This unique schedule allowed him the opportunity to indulge his passion for genealogy, traveling the country with his first wife to uncover the roots of their family tree.


Charles took great pride in the accomplishments of his grandchildren, celebrating their every success with joy and admiration. Family was of utmost importance to him, and he cherished the moments they spent together.


In later years, Charles found a deep and abiding love with his second wife, Mildred, with whom he shared the final chapters of his life. Their companionship brought them both comfort and happiness, gracefully aging together in love and unity.


Charles will forever be remembered as a resilient and dedicated man. His memory will be cherished by his beloved son, Robert Eastwood, who will carry on his legacy with pride and honor.
We find solace in knowing that he lived a life filled with hard work, love, and cherished relationships. Let us honor his memory by cherishing our own loved ones and living each day with the same determination and dedication that Charles exemplified in his remarkable life. He was a U.S. Airforce veteran. 


A private ceremony will be held in his honor at a later date. 
May his soul rest in eternal peace.

The family would like to thank Haydel Memorial Hospice for the love and care they had bistowed on Mr. Charles Eastwood, Jr. and the family.
