Charles served four years in the United States Air Force during the Korean War.  He loved listening to music, and was very talented when it came to keyboard instruments.  He could listen to a song one time and then could immediately play it on the piano.  He was a big Notre Dame football fan and enjoyed going to their games to watch them play. He was also big into fitness and exercising. 

Per his wishes, no services will be held.
