One of the best umpires in the world!!! Loved watching him joking around with all of the softball players and mostly giving Clifford Kirk a hard time on the field during school ball. We always had so much fun when he was on the field especially when he was behind the plate, never a bad game win or lose. He was such a joy to be around and will be missed so much at the fields. Our prayers and love go out to his family!1

When Charles has an apartment fire and lost his belongings, the Knights of Columbus took him to our White Elephant barn so he could take what he needed. He spent an hour picking out furniture and household supplies for his neighbors who also lost everything. When I asked him if he was going to get anything for himself, he said, β€œI am blessed. I don’t need anything. These people have children!” What a selfless and inspiring man.
