"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven... Ecclesiastes 31
Charles Henry Graves, Jr. (Moses) was born in Leesville, Louisiana to the late Charles Henry Graves, Sr. and Idell Curry. He received his education at Quitman High School in Quitman, LA. After school, he moved with his mother and stepfather Alvern Williams to Helena, Montana, and resided there for most of his life. There he met his wife, Kimberly who preceded him in death, and to this union he had one son, Charles Nathaniel Graves, Jr.; and one stepdaughter (Dystinie Knight) who he raised as his own.
Moses loved to travel, and found himself in the middle of Powell, WY. His family would ask him how in the world did you end up there. This is where he settled until his untimely death. While living in Wyoming, Charles met his special friend, Brittany Fransway. They soon afterwards had a daughter (Makeena), whom he adored, and he raised Brittany's son (Isaac) as his own.
Moses loved spending time with family and friends. He was a loyal friend and would help where he could. He loved making everyone happy and he had a funny sense of humor.
