Mr. Charles Haggins, Jr., 78, loving husband of Cynthia Mae Haggins and a resident of Bloxom, VA, departed this life on Friday, May 3, 2019 at Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital, in Onancock, VA. Born July 5, 1940 in Onancock, VA, he was a son of the late Charles Haggins and Beatrice Bayley.
“Coffee Daddy,” as he was affectionately known, never met a stranger and greeted everyone with a smile. He was a longtime truck driver, heavy equipment operator, and a talented landscaper. A jack of all trades, Charles enjoyed attending estate sales and yard sales, often buying old tractors and other items to fix up or ‘junk’. Charles loved the Lord, was devoted to his family, and loved to make people laugh. He will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.
In addition to his wife of 24 years, he is survived by seven children, Antonio Flores, Benito Flores and fiancé Vicky Lewis, and Victor Scott, all of Bloxom, Matthew Scott and wife Kristen of Melfa, VA, Tanya Haggins of Cape Charles, VA, Aretha Haggins of Mississippi, and Brian Haggins of Philadelphia, PA; sisters, Betty Haggins, Rose Haggins, and Ann Purnell; brother, Lawrence Haggins; mother-in-law, Linda Rivera; brother-in-law, James Scott; grandchildren, Jasmine, Jahmir, Tony, Kaylin, Dejesus, Jr., Jeremiah, Cassie and Conner, all of whom adored their “Pop Pop”; 12 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, all of Berlin, MD; many nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family; and countless friends. Other than his parents, Charles was predeceased by a son, Timothy Haggins; and sisters, Katherine Haggins and Mary Veney.
