Charlie graduated from Paris Crossing High School in 1955. He was a member of First Marion Baptist Church which was a top priority for Charlie. He was baptized in 1954.

Charlie was a self-employed farmer while working full time at Cummins Engine where he retired. After retirement, he fulfilled a dream of driving a "big" truck at Planck Trucking. He loved tractors, fishing with family and friends and spending time with family.
