Charlie was a 1958 graduate of Reitz High School. During his Air Force service, he was deployed to the Florida Everglades during the Bay of Pigs invasion. Upon returning from Florida, he served in Madison, WI where he met Jean Zimbrick and they were married May 1, 1965. Charlie had an illustrious 42 year career with Brake Supply Company, Inc. Highlights of Charlie's career: he designed and built a clutch for Paul Newman to use in the 24 Hours Race at Sebring, FL and built and repaired hydraulic engine controls on Jacques Cousteau's Calypso and engine controls on the Donald Trump yacht. Through his Air Force training, he received a security clearance to Kennedy Space Center where he watched several shuttle launches and was on board ships that recovered space capsules at sea. After he retired in 2002, he longed to return to his Indiana roots and moved to rural Spencer County.

Charlie is survived by his wife Jean, sons Michael and Daniel, and daughter-in-law, Janet; sisters, Donna Howell and Dixie Wade; brothers-in-law, Raymond Howell and Robert Wade; three step-grandsons, Graham, Bram and Adam Morison. He was preceded in death by his parents, Steamboat and Louise Hall.
