Charlie was born in Baltimore and attended Forest Park High School and was a 1953 graduate from Loyola College where he earned varsity letters in lacrosse. He went on to play for the Maryland Lacrosse Club for 10 years.

He worked diligently to promote the sport of lacrosse while coaching in the Loch Raven rec program until 1972, winning multiple state championships. Charlie held increasing levels of responsibility with British Petroleum (BP) over a 33-year career, relocated to Atlanta in 1972 and then to Naperville, Illinois in 1975.

He retired from BP Oil in 1986 and moved to Ocean Pines, Maryland where he was an active member of the Ocean Pines Golf Club throughout his retirement. He enjoyed golfing, boating, fishing, and spending time with family and friends.

Charlie loved his family and will be missed by all.

A memorial service will be held on a future date this summer at St. John Neumann Catholic church in Berlin, Maryland.
