Charles worked for the Village of Belle Rive for the majority of his life. Lots of people knew him but even more loved him. Not only did he did he take care of his family, he helped everyone he met.

He loved to spend time tinkering with cars and motorcycles when he wasn't at a flea market or auction. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy, and so was his fur baby Pepper.

He was a man with a big heart, and a love for fun times and Rock n' Roll.
