Charles was blessed with a large and loving family. He married his best friend, Carolyn Ann Brothers on December 28, 1973. They were married for 48 beautiful years.

When he lost his sight, he still helped us see the good around us. When he lost his ability to walk, he still showed us what it looks like to walk closely with the Lord. Once he knew his life here on earth was coming to an end, he continued to point us to an Everlasting Life with our Creator and Savior.
