Charlie bravely served his country in the United States Marine Corps from 1955 to 1958 as a Corporal. He was a proud veteran during the Korean War. He was rarely seen out when he was not wearing his Marine Veteran baseball cap.
He was more fondly known to his family as “Pops” or “Grampie” and his extended family called him Uncle Charlie. He loved to garden and share the fruits of his garden with family and friends. He will be missed by all that knew him.

I lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made in Honor of Charlie to Tunnel to Towers Foundation or the Wounded Warrior Project.
