He married Myrna Ann Hamden on March 28, 1949 in Angola, IN, and she survives. Charlie was employed with Bohn Aluminum for over 40 years, but his lifelong passion was his farm.

He enjoyed bowling, square dancing, bingo, playing cards, Las Vegas, 4-H, serving as a deacon at Palmyra Presbyterian Church, his commitment to his community and his famous BBQ chicken legs! His humor and laughter will be missed, along with his fellowship with all that entered his life.
