Charles was much like John Wayne’s The Quiet Man. He came from a family of 14 children and probably had trouble being heard with so many voices. He enjoyed quiet things: woodworking, camping, walking the boards in Ocean City, and relaxing after a day of work at VWR’s warehouse. Charles had a magic touch with baking cookies especially snickerdoodles. He joined the Army in 1954 and served mostly in California. He was discharged in December of 1957 and shortly thereafter came to Swedesboro to join his brother, Don. Charles met Linda Sharp but she gave him a cold shoulder. He persisted in pursuit of her affection and they married in 1977. They were blessed with a daughter, Cheryl and a son, Michael, and a grandson, Aaron. His survivors include brothers : Don, Gary, Roy, sisters: Evelyn Saeger, Eleanor Rapine, VJ Martin, Judy Bonner, Ann Hager, and Donna Lee Kirk.
