He was known by his family and friends as a fun-loving, generous man.  He enjoyed photography, meeting new people, quiet time with family and friends and parties!

He spent many years in the construction industry, negotiating, supervising and managing  the construction of commercial properties.  He loved his job and did it well.  After his retirement he lived in Middletown New York for a number of years.  With a special place in his heart for animals, he volunteered, then became president of the Middletown Humane Society.

Later, he and his wife moved to their home at Long Meadow Lake in Bethlehem where he had spent his youthful years and was always drawn back to.  His children, grandchildren and great grandchildren loved going to “the Lake” where they spent quality time with Charlie and the rest of the family fishing, swimming and boating.

He will forever be in our hearts.
