CHARLES EDWARD SOFFAR was born on June 22, 1948 in Houston, Texas at St. Joseph’s Hospital to Esther Goldy Garfinkle Soffar and Benjamin Soffar. He was the third son in the family with two older brothers: Allan Jarrell Soffar and William Douglas Soffar. Charlie was educated in the public schools of Houston, Texas, where he excelled as an honor student. Upon graduation from Stephen F. Austin High School he enrolled at the University of Houston where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. At UH, he was active in student politics and Hillel, and especially the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity – he never missed a reunion. He was a proud Houstonian and a Loyal Cougar through and through! After graduation from the University of Houston Law School and passing the State Bar of Texas, he was employed as a City Prosecutor in the Municipal Courts of the City of Houston. Afterwards, he began a private practice of law and continued until the day of his death. He met and fell deeply in love with Rosalyn Koosh, who had two sons, Victor and Vincent, and Charlie became their Dad. After a few years of happy marriage, Rosalyn and Charlie welcomed their son, Jonathan, into their lives. Charlie was so proud of his three sons and encouraged each of them to seek an education and productive careers. He was thrilled when his older sons married, Victor to Ale and Vincent to Margaret, thereby acquiring two new loving daughters. Victor and Ale blessed him with a granddaughter Bella, and Vincent and Margaret gave him two grandsons, Nathan and Noah, and granddaughter Ava. Charlie became a doting Grandpa, and he taught his grandchildren to have a great love for life and for sports! Charlie was a wonderful, kind, gentle, and intelligent gentleman who will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He is survived by his beloved wife Rosalyn, his sons and daughters-in-law, Victor and Ale Koosh, Vincent and Margaret Koosh, his son Jonathan Soffar, and his grandchildren Bella, Nathan, Ava, and Noah, as well as many other friends and family members.
