Having an ability to form warm friendships wherever he went, he enjoyed the many new friends he formed while traveling. Some of his favorite places and activities included enjoying the food and music of New Orleans, seeing the wild nature of Alaska, dining in the olive gardens of Italy, and seeing the many different sights and parks of California.
On the home front he enjoyed woodcraft, camping and fishing. But if asked he would say, his greatest joy and accomplishments were being a doting Father and Grandfather. He was particularly fond of babies and children and they always seemed to know they were safe and loved when he was near. Charles will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
