Charles was born on August 6, 1944, at Sargent, Nebraska, and was raised on the Daily Farm where he learned the value of hard work, the importance of family, and a love of Country. He grew up surrounded by countless cousins, aunts, uncles, and close friends, that helped shape the man he would become. He attended school in Milburn, NE until graduating from Merna High School in 1962. He left the Sandhills of Nebraska for Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, CA with brother Dan, cousin Marvin, and some high school friends. His Marine Corps career was cut short in boot camp, and he settled in the Bay Area CA.
He was hired as an apprentice lineman with PG&E in 1967 to begin a career that would span 5 decades and 40+ year member of the IBEW L.U. 1245 as a Journeyman Lineman. When not working you would find him spending time with family, playing cards, listening to live music, enjoying bay area sports, watching news radio, or making memories with his grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
