Previously, he was on the faculty of Baylor University's Dental School and was a member of the original faculty at the Dental School of the Medical University of South Carolina. Charlie took to retirement like a fish takes to water and never looked back. He was a man of many hobbies. He collected antiques, Morgan cars, Classic Thunderbirds and clocks. Charlie loved Great Dane dogs, travel and golf. He was active in car clubs, especially the Morgan Owners Group South. Charlie was a president of the Country Club of Charleston, where he made three holes in one. Although he was fortunate enough to play both August National and the Old Course in St. Andrews Scotland, his time spent golfing with his friends at the Country Club of Charleston was his favorite. Charlie was a kind, thoughtful, loving, gentle man. His goodness will be missed greatly. Charlie is survived by his wife, Caroline; grandson, Brian King; and daughter-in-law, Jeannie King of Dallas, TX. He was predeceased by his son from a former marriage, Geoffrey King who passed away suddenly on September 5th of this year.
