He attended the University of Kansas where he earned a B.S. in Journalism, 1954; B.S in Education, 1962; and M.S. in Journalism also in 1962. He was a proud Jayhawk and made sure all his children and grandchildren knew the importance of his being a Jayhawk. KU and Jayhawk memorabilia were proudly displayed in his home (and on his person). Charles was a member of the United States Air Force from 1954-1956 where he was assigned as a Textbook Writer and Special Project Officer. He wrote two volumes for the Air Force University entitled Air Force Classification and History of the Air Force in World War II. He proudly displayed these books on his living room coffee table. His profession took him to California where he worked for the Los Angeles Unified School District as an English teacher from 1962-1987. After taking an early retirement he began substitute teaching for the Huntington Beach Unified High School District. For the next 12 years, he carefully kept track of every substitute teaching position he held, and "kept score" of the high schools where he taught. Charles enjoyed reading, travel, church activities, spending time with his family and friends, and organizing supper clubs for the Community Methodist Church. He never met a stranger or someone who wasn't "like part of the family". His kind soul will be missed by many. Memorial services for Charles will be November 29th at 10:00 am at St. Wilfrid of York Episcopal Church 18631 Chapel Lane Huntington Beach, CA 92646. No Flowers, please. Send donations to KU or a charity of your choice.
