Charles worked as a machinist at Rival Manufacturing for 30 years until his retirement. He was a member of the Church of God in Sedalia, where he had served as a board member and a Kingsman.

The things that brought him the most joy in life were fishing, hunting, projects in his garage and family get-togethers.

Charles is best described as strong, caring, giving and friendly. He was committed to his faith and loved the Lord. He always had a smile and loved to talk about hunting and fishing. He was deeply devoted to his wife of 53 years. He took care of her day and night and was always quite the romantic.
