He belonged to the Local Carpenter's Union 1846. He was a very active parishioner of St. Louis King of France Church and was a revered member of the Knights of Columbus 4663. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, especially when he was able to take his grandchildren along. Charles was an avid Saints fan and outdoorsman.
