He married Marlene Ebert on Jan. 16, 1962, and together they raised their 3 children. Charlie was a member of the Elks Lodge in Grand Rapids, Minn. He enjoyed camping, farming beef cattle and horses, especially playing horseshoes and tug-of-war, but Charlie’s passion was horses. He was always the life of the party and made many people laugh with his jokes.
