Charles was born in Donalsonville, Georgia, was raised in Quincy, Florida, later moving to Tallahassee where he met the love of his life at 18 years old. He and Janet married seven months later with a marriage that lasted 53 years. He enlisted in the United States Air Force at the age of 19, with tours of duty in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Viet Nam, and Woodbridge, England. He was discharged honorably. On return to Tallahassee, he enrolled at Florida State University where he earned a BS in sociology and a Masters in political science. He returned to military service with the Army National Guard, retiring as a Captain. He also retired from the State of Florida.
His second love and passion, after family, was flying. He flew, bought, and sold many types of airplanes. He instructed too many to count in earning their license to fly. He had many close friends in the airport community and will be greatly missed.
There will be a celebration of Charles’ life on May 23, 2021, 3:00 P.M., at the Quincy Municipal Airport. All friends and family are welcome. Anyone that would like to speak about Charles or bring their guitar for a sing-a-long, please do so. His third love and passion was his guitar. He loved all types of music, from classical to Beatles to country. He so enjoyed what he called “framing” and teaching guitar to friends young and old.
