I have known every Parole Board Member since 1977 and I will remember Mr. Aycock as one of the best to ever serve in that position. I enjoyed very much knowing this man and will remember him fondly and miss him greatly. Condolences to his family.

I was saddened to learn of Mr. Aycock's passing I worked him on the Parole Board and always enjoyed a conversation with him. He was always friendly, positive, and encouraging. I miss getting to see him. My heartfelt sympathy to his family, I know you will miss him greatly!

Just learned of Mr. Aycock's passing. I did not know Mr. Aycock and never met him but in my current position I've had the opportunity to review some his work with the Parole Board under Governor Perry. I have always been impressed with his his unwavering commitment to doing what was right rather than politically expedient. Italians have a saying that translates to "A life well lived, makes for an easy death". From all indications, Mr. Aycock's life was extremely well-lived.

My condolences to all the family. I'm not positive as to why he moved to Farwell but he was a blessing to the residents of Farwell. He helped my mother when she needed legal assistance and he helped me administer her estate. I knew Charlie at Tech and was happy to visit with him in Farwell. He will be remembered for his smile and pleasant personality. So sorry for your loss.

Margaret, what fun times we had when our husbands were in law school and then our occasional get togethers during all these years. Charlie was truly one of a kind. I regret you and I never had Charlie and Jon play duets for us on their cornet and trombone. With love to you and your entire family, Connie Wood

Charles Aycock hired me as the Amarilo Parole Board Hearing Analyst in 2006. It was such a privilege to work with him and the rest of the small staff at the Amarillo Board Office. He was truly a pleasure to work with and I loved hearing about his life and I enjoyed his humor. I am sad for his passing, I know he is at peace with our Lord. Rest In Peace 🙏, my condolences to his family.

Charles was my first job interview. I was so nervous even though I knew him outside of the work environment. He soon put me at ease. I remember his jokes to keep it light in the office and the smell of his pipe in the hallway. I learned so much in that first job and those lessons continue to impact my work to this day. I loved it when he and Margaret travelled and would hire Debra and I to take care of Bubba and Ginger! I always felt so welcome in their home when tagging along with Sonya. Margaret, Chris and Sonya, Karen, and Matthew you are my thoughts and prayers.

Chris, we are so sorry to hear of your father’s passing. He sounds like an amazing man! Brian looks upon the father-son camping trip that you and Matt organized with your Dads as a highlight of his later years. There he was privileged to meet and spend time with your Father and thought very highly of him. We are praying you all, for peace and comfort in the knowledge that Jesus walks this path with you. Lovingly, Brian and Ruth Catalano

I am deeply saddened to learn of Charlie's death. Having spent my junior year of high school, I know that great leaders who accomplish great things can be born anywhere. Charlie was my fraternity pledge brother in Kappa Sigma at Texas Tech, so I learned first hand of the qualities that made Charlie a great leader. Texas Tech, the State of Texas, Farwell, Tulia and the State Bar are incredibly fortunate to have been the beneficiaries of Charlie's dynamic leadership and his empathy for his fellow man. My sincerest condolences to the family, and appreciation for Charlie's great life!

I first met Charlie Aycock while trying a case in Farwell. I will always remember Charlie as a worthy opponent and truly a "gentleman " lawyer. I was thrilled when Charlie and Margaret moved to Lake Tanglewood. My wife Marka and Margaret played piano and organ at the Lake Tanglewood Community Church for many years and were closest of friends. Margaret, our thoughts and prayers are with you during the times.
