Charles loves Jesus.  He was a giver. He loved golfing and looking for treasures at Flea Markets and Garage Sales.  He did missionary work in Guatemala, gave to many charities and to anyone who asked (and a lot that didn’t ask).  He loved to travel and drive.  He donated his time, equipment, vehicles and money to anyone in need.  He loved to talk with anyone and always had a good story.  His children and loved ones will greatly miss him.

A Celebration Service will take place later and will be determined. A private Graveside Service will be held due to circumstances at this time and safety. Condolences may be left for the family at Baker Funeral Home in Valley Center is in charge of arrangements.
