So many great memories of Uncle Charles from my early childhood; fishing on lake martin to rabbit hunting to hours and hours around their house in the summer. Wonderful sense of humor, always had a smile on his face and a warm handshake to offer. Devoted to his family he has set a wonderful example for his descendants and ultimately had a full life that was well lived.
