Charles “Charlie” Richard Sanner, 73, passed away on Tuesday, June 25, 2024 in a Houston, Texas hospital.

He had been a resident of Sulphur for the last 40 years, and worked for MI Swaco in the oilfield before retiring.  He enjoyed all sports, especially LSU football. He especially loved the LSU/Alabama rivalry that prevailed in his household every football season.  Charlie was quick-witted, and always had a story to tell that would bring a laugh and smile to everyone. Charlie loved spending time with his family, and had a special connection with his great-nieces, Chloe and Kate, and newborn, Ava, who called him “Cha Cha”.

Survivors include his wife of 40 years, Kristi Suarez Sanner; his children, Chas, Renee’, and Monique; his brothers, Kirk and Dwayne Sanner; his brother-in-law, Jimmy Griffith; and four grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Janice Sanner Griffith; his father-in-law, Shannon Suarez, and his brother-in-law, Wayne Suarez.
