Charlie grew up in Havre and attended Havre schools. He graduated from Havre High School in 1975.
Charlie worked as a brakeman for the Burlington Northern Railway and later traveled throughout the northwest. He traveled by whatever means possible, sometimes riding the rails and sometimes hitchhiking, but always spreading his humor. Charlie was one of a kind whose quick wit made a lasting impression on everyone he met.
Charlie is survived by his parents, Howard Tibbetts of Havre and Alvera and Lindy Wickstrom of Brookings, S.D.; twin brother, John (Kristine Christensen) Tibbetts of Havre; sisters, Debra (Jim) Thompson of Houston, Texas, and Cynthia (John Fraser) Tibbetts of Calgary, Alberta; two nieces; two nephews; one greatniece; and one greatnephew.
