Charles grew up in rural Pennsylvania in dairy country where his heart was always desiring to return. After graduating from high school in Troy, PA, he joined the US Army where he served in Germany, Texas, California among other places. After his military service Charles drove tractor trailer off and on through the rest of his life which suited his wandering spirit. He settled in Colorado where he lived for the last year during his battle with cancer. Charles will be missed by everyone who he met through his positive attitude and infectious smile.
