To know Charlie, was to love Charlie.  He had an easy-going personality, always the light of the room and loved making people laugh.  He lived his life and didn’t care who was watching along the way.  Growing up he enjoyed playing many baseball games at the Little League Field in Colusa and playing football in High School.  He loved being in the outdoors which include many fishing, camping and hunting trips growing up with his family & friends.
