Upon returning home, Charlie began working at Union Carbide in Victoria. It was there that he met a cute girl named Earline.

Charlie completed his BBA in Accounting in 1958 at the University of Texas, and started working in the savings and loan industry. He worked as an executive for various institutions in Austin until his retirement in 1992. Charlie and Earline were fortunate to travel to many destinations. Some of their latest travels took them to Europe, the Middle East, Nevada, Louisiana, Alaska, and anywhere the next bowling tournament was being held.
