Charles Kevin Mize was born on February 1, 1962 in Waco, Texas. He moved to Meridian as a teenager where he had spent the rest of his life. He prided himself on being a third generation farmer. Throughout his life you could have found him building fences, underneath a hood, trucking down the road, watching hog shows, and at the occasional chicken fight. Mizo was truly a jack of all trades and a self-proclaimed outlaw. He definitely made his own kind of impression on this world, his legacy will be carried on and be told often.

Griffin of Houston; numerous other relatives and friends.
