Charles dedicated his life to the military and proudly served in the U.S. Navy in a wide range of positions for over 20 years retiring as a Chief Petty Officer. He often worked multiple jobs to support his family and make sure to take care of those he loved. This included over 10 years at Electric Boat. In his free time, he enjoyed being a youth coach of various sports and announced at Pee-Wee football games in Westerly.
