To the Family of Charles I'm  so sorry for your loss. May God comfort you. Charles was such  a faithful visitor to Ralph each time he was in the Ruston Hospital. We appreciated his visits so much! Near the end Ralph wasn't aware of what was going on. In June of 1952, before Ralph and I were married he wrote to me that Charles came in and they talked awhile and Charles told him he had decided to take Chemical Engineering at Tech in the Fall. (That was Ralph's degree) He was trying to decide whether to stay in town or the dormitory and what to do about working. He wanted to get a job to help work his way through school. He asked Ralph to go to Tech with him one day to find out about a room and a job.He ended up in the dorm and I believe Ralph was with him to help him get settled in at Tech. With love, and praying for comfort in time of loss Voncile

Our Dear Charlie and on occasion when we would call him Charles, he would just flash his contagious smile that he always carried everywhere he went. We loved having Charlie to service our equipment at all of the Willis Knighton facilities as it gave us an opportunity for visits and talks to catch up on his family and ours as well. We at WK North introduced Charlie to our yogurt from the cafeteria and we would have a cup of yogurt as we visited before he headed back to Ruston. We met Chris when he started taking over some of Charlie's duties, we liked seeing Chris but we really missed our Charlie and his smile. Charlie even taught a few of us at LSU hospital in the Radiological program. When Charlie was in our hospital we were blessed to meet Ms. Pattie. The Willis Knighton Nuclear Medicine family offers our prayers and the comfort of God to the family of Charles Killgore during this difficult time.

Killgore family my prayers and thought are with you! Mr. Killgore was one of the smartest, humble, kind, loving, patient, understanding and faith driven person I have ever known. My time working for him were some of the best years. He was always there to listen if you needed to talk, always there to help you understand and teach you something. I will forever treasure the various items Mr. Killgore made for me through the years. I know that he touched not just my life but the lives of so many through the years in such a positive way. Always encouraging others in their faith, family, work and education. Such a huge witness to so many. May God comfort your family as only He can do in the days, weeks and years to come. With Love, Caryl Scriber

So sorry for the family's loss. Growing up in Lisbon and attending LHS, all the students and their families kinda felt like siblings; we were so close. Charles and his brothers and sisters were no exception. I know Charles will be missed by his many friends and family. [R I P Charles Killgore]

A truly wonderful person. We are all better off having known him and being taught by him. He taught my first chemical engineering course at Tech. One of my fondest memories of Charles was in the summer of 1965. I had just started grad school and Charles wanted me to help coach a little league baseball team. What a fun summer. I don't remember our record, but we tried to make Walpole Tire Service proud!!

Dr. Killgore was truly a good man who cared for his family, his friends and his community. As a founding board member of Cedar Creek, he helped give many kids, such as myself, a great opportunity for an excellent education in Lincoln Parish. I will always remember the times with him in scouting and the knowledge he shared during nuclear science tours at La. Tech. My prayers go out for the Killgore family. Dr, Killgore was a very amazing man.

My prayers and sympathy for the family. You do not know me as I am just one of the many students who passed through his nuclear center. Yet I remember him well and always appreciated him as a teacher.

To the Killgore family: all of you are in our thoughts and prayers as we celebrate the life of a very special man. Mr. Killgore was instrumental in establishing Cedar Creek School and forever remained a staunch advocate for its mission. He never failed to give his support and encourage those in leadership. He was a mentor to me and always there for advice and guidance. A truly selfless man who was a "giver" and never sought the limelight for himself. Thank you Charlie for everything you have done for our community.
