In high school he was on the football and track teams. Later he took up racquetball and was President of the Massachusetts Racquetball Assoc for many years. Pickleball was his latest passion. He had a wonderful Cape Cod wit and made many friends were ever he went. Charlie spent his youth growing up at his grandparents home on Paines Creek Rd, Brewster. He had an idyllic childhood roaming the lands of Paines Creek and Wing Island. As per Charlies request no services will be held. His ashes were scattered at Paines Creek.
