Charles passed peacefully from this life late in the night on April 18th after a cardiovascular episode left him unconscious on April 10th. He was surrounded and supported by his loving family during the last days of his life. Charles was born in Houston, TX, and lived in the vicinity for his entire life. He moved to Waller, TX in 1995 with his toddler and wife where he raised four children.
Charles was an amazing musician, a caring father, and an important part of God’s family. His life was defined by the worship of the Lord and helping places of worship better proclaim His name. He helped raise four children alongside Valerie who was also a Children’s Minister in various churches. Due to this, all his children have been involved in serving the church at one point or another; making impacts in even more lives than his music alone could reach.
Charles is survived by his spouse Valerie and four children (and son-in-law); Charles Prause III, Victoria Tarver (Zakary), Rachel Prause, and Chloe Prause. Charles is also survived by his father Charles Prause; siblings (and spouses), Mark Prause (Kim) and Crystal Brashear (Tim); his Nieces; Mercilyn Prause, Eliora Prause, Jovana Brashear, Viola Brashear; and many cousins as well.
