Charles served his country in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict. He retired after working 30 years for the railroad and again as owner of Crist Drake Monument Company.

He collected various antique cars and was a member of the Dayton Model A Club. Charles was a proud member of the NRA and was long time mayor of Lawrenceville.
