While a member of the Lyndon Institute class of 1946, Charles enlisted in the US Navy in 1944, where he served honorably until his discharge in 1946. His service during World War II led him to the Pacific Theatre where he patrolled on and off the shoreline of Nagasaki, Japan, became a licensed pilot and learned conversational Japanese.
Charles’ desire to learn continued; after receiving his GED and later his diploma he went on to earn his Master’s Electricians License, Master Welder Certification, served as Welding instructor for VCC, Commercial Drivers License and a self-taught jack of all trades. Having spent years restoring his 1925 and 1926 Buicks, he could frequently be seen participating in local parades.
Charles led a life of service; as a member of the Masonic Lodge in Lyndonville, he served multiple terms as Lodge Master and received recognition for his 60 years of membership. He was a member of the Lyndon Center Baptist Church and would often be seen lending a hand where needed. He loved his community, many close friends, hunting, fishing, dancing, playing cards and above all spending time with his family.
