He continued to be an outdoorsman until his last day. He truly enjoyed being outdoors even more if he was with his family and friends. Family fishing trips at Tupper Lake, and hunting deer put a big smile on his face!
Charles had a deep faith in Catholicism. Many of his friends he met through the church. When not at church or outdoors, he enjoyed photography.
He enjoyed the National Geographic Magazine, NRA Magazine, American Hunter and The Conservationist via DEC Magazine.
He was quite handy around the home as well. From plumbing to electric to building – Charles did it all!
