Charles was born in Madison County Alabama about two miles from Lincoln county. His relatives have been in this area since 1816. He is a 1961 graduate of Blanche High School.
After high school he went to work for IBM Corporation as a Computer Service Rep. for twenty years. Following that, worked for some third party service origination for another twenty years, completing a 40-year career when he retired.
Most of his life Charles has been involved in woodworking from home. Retirement was not as fulfilling, so he volunteered as a woodworking instructor at Redstone Arsenal’s Arts and Crafts Center. After a couple of years as a volunteer he was asked to go to work as an instructor there, and accepted. It has been a very rewarding job for him as he meets and helps to teach woodworking to some of the best folks he’s ever meet, our military, both active duty and veterans as well as civilians.
Charles has always been a patriot and a deep believer in our way of life, the Constitution of the United States, and of the State of Tennessee. He has been a resident of Lincoln County for most of his life and loves the people and the area.
