He was a 1969 graduate of Marian High School in Bel Air, Texas. Charles retired as a General Manager from Total Building Maintenance, following several years in the janitorial services industry. Charles was an avid reader and animal lover. He enjoyed coaching his sons’ baseball teams when they were young and was a Texas Rangers fan. Bowling was also one of Charles’ favorite pastimes in his younger years. More than anything, he had a great love for his family and was a “family man”.

Carla & family, I will always remember Chuck as a friend that was proud of his family. His encouragement when a "Spare or Strike" were not made. Bowling was quite an enjoyment for for the two of you. When you hear thunder it might be a STRIKE made by Chuck on the way to another 200 game.
My prayers are for all of you . With sympathy , Esther Liptai
