1939-2014

Retired U.S. Coast Guard Master Chief Petty Officer Charles R. “Charlie” Schlinke, 75, of Flower Mound died on Wednesday, April 2, 2014, in the Rambling Oaks Courtyard Extensive Care Community in Highland Village, Texas, following a period of failing health. Charlie was born in Nixon on March 21, 1939, the only son of Charlie and Ella Nora Schlinke. He had only been a resident of Flower Mound for 17 months. Charlie resided in Nixon until his enlistment in the U.S. Coast Guard on Aug. 7, 1956. He retired on May 31, 1980, as a master chief boatswain’s mate, having served more than 24 years of honorable service. During those 24 years Charlie was stationed throughout the United States and abroad, most notably Turkey, Italy, and Enewetak Atoll, a large coral atoll of 40 islands in the Pacific Ocean, better known as the Marshall Islands. Following his military service, Charlie and his beautiful wife, Diana (Werner) Schlinke, moved to Morgan City, La., where he worked as the personnel director at Newpark Marine. Several years later they moved back to his home of Nixon, where he became a deputy sheriff of Gonzales County. They moved once again to Cuero to continue his law-enforcement career with the DeWitt County Sheriff’s Department. He retired from law enforcement in 1999. Charlie and Diana lived in Cuero for 25 years before moving to Flower Mound.

Charlie is survived by his wife, Diana; three children, Charles Bradford Schlinke of Austin, Darrell Scott Morrow of Hollis, N.H., and Lt. Cmdr. Guy Allen Morrow of Bristow, Va.; six grandchildren; and one great-granddaughter.

A memorial service was held on Saturday, April 12, at 2 p.m. in the Finch Funeral Chapel in Nixon.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Special Olympics or to a local church.
