Charles was a quiet, "man of few words", but well known for his wit and sense of humor.
He took much pride in remodeling several of his homes. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and camping, and has left his family with many fond memories of sharing these things he loved.
Charles was: proud, brave and courageous man, as he battled 13 yrs with cancer, never complaining, only saying "it is what it is."
