Charles was born and raised in Cust, New Zealand. After receiving his electricians certificate while working at Addington Railway in Christchurch, Charles decided to see more of the world and began travelling. He settled in Kamloops, BC getting a job with CP Railway and was eventually transferred to Medicine Hat where he met and married Dorothy. Charles left CP Rail and worked at various companies as an electrician. After retiring, he took up golf which lead to a seasonal job with the Riverview Golf Club as part of the grounds crew. Charles was a long time member of the Masonic Lodge, past President of the Medicine Hat Soccer Association and former piper with the South East Pipe and Drums Band. He had a love of many things including reading, golf, rugby, soccer, NASCAR and Star Wars just to name a few. He enjoyed his friendship with his “Lunch Buddies” at the Veiner Centre but mostly Charles loved the time spent with his family.
