Being stationed both stateside and abroad, he formed friendships with everyone he met. After retiring from the Air Force, he went to work at CA Jackson and then received his degree from Coastal Bend College. He became an instructor at Coastal Bend College teaching Welding and later, Computer Technology. Charles retired for good in 2021 to spend more time with family and to take some time for himself.

He was an extremely generous person with the biggest heart and most genuine, caring soul. If you knew him, you knew. He lived a peaceful life and loved just being there for those around him.
