Charles Edward Carthage Jr. “Goosie Boy” son of Charles Edward Carthage Sr. and Betty Ann Carthage was born on July 27, 1972 in Chicago, Illinois.
As a child, Goosie Boy attended the Chicago Public Schools and enjoyed going to church on Sunday mornings to listen to the choir sing.
Goosie Boy had a smile that would lighten any dark room. Those that knew him knew he was very loyal and protective of his family.
