Charles lived a long and very fulfilling life. He served in the Army as a paratrooper from 1950-1955 in th e 187th Airborne Combat Team in Korea and Japan. He was a big part of the American Legion Post 39 for 65 years (1957 – present) and was the Commander for many years (1998-2004). He was on the Oakdale Fire Department part time for 13 years (1968-1982) and a part-time policeman and skin diver for the Oakdale Police Department. He worked a full-time job at Standard Conveyor as a Welder. After Standard Conveyor closed, he opened his own welding business: Dandy Welding. Charles enjoyed being around and spending time with his family and friends. Charles also made time to have some fun too. He enjoyed golfing, fishing, deer hunting, vacationing to Las Vegas, going to Hinckley Grand Casino, tinkering around in the garage, snowmobiling, car racing, and the love of animals was one of his favorites – watching, feeding, and caring for them all!
