Charles attended a one-room schoolhouse near Cannon's Corners. He began farming in 1941 in Ellenburg until 1963 when he moved to Mooers and continued to farm until his retirement in 1976. Even after his retirement, Charles worked for his son on the farm in the summer and he and Eva spent the winters in Fla.

His fondest memories included the three months they spent traveling to Alaska, hunting moose in northern Canada and deer hunting with his wife Eva, family and friends.

Charles was a member of the Mooers Wesleyan Church, Gideons International, Mooers Camp Meeting Association and past member of The Gulf View Hunting Club.

He was predeceased by his daughter, Judy Sanchagrin in 1999; one brother, Frank; and five sisters, Ruby, Bertha, Edith, Ida, and Beatrice.

His quiet belief in Jesus Christ has left a lasting impression on many that knew him. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Calling hours will be private and held at the convenience of the family. A Memorial Service will be held at 5 p.m on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, in the Mooers Wesleyan Church. Burial will take place in the spring in Riverside Cemetery in Mooers.
