Charlie was a graduate of Chalmette High School and a former employee of Halter Marine, Kaiser Aluminum, and the Hotel Monteleone. He was a skilled carpenter and an avid fisherman, enjoying many successful trips with family and friends, but most often with his dad. If the fish were biting slowly and other conditions were right, it was not uncommon to hear the splash of Charlie diving off the boat and searching underwater for an oyster bed to test out a few. He loved raw oysters and just about any kind of seafood. He loved watching Saints games, listening to local talk radio and reading the newspaper front to back. He will be missed for his easy-going personality, sense of humor, and always appreciative demeanor, especially during his final years.
