They were married September 14, 1947 and spent a lifetime, 73 years together. Charles would enjoy spending summer and winter vacations with his daughter and her family, creating memories with his grandchildren and great grandchildren as her family grew. Charles and June enjoyed an amazing trip through Europe with their son as they traveled the same routes that Charles traveled during WWII. His son had planned the route from old letters Charles had written to his parents. He was a proud veteran and loved going to the American Legion. In his younger years he helped out the “Drum and Bugle Corp” and more recently would enjoy his time there with his son, an old friend along with his new found friends. Charles loved to follow the Baltimore Orioles and Ravens and was a very devoted fan. He was a creative woodworker and his family would always look forward to his ornaments and projects every year. He was always thinking of the next invention to solve a problem he encountered. Charles would never turn down a crab feast with a cold beer or a trip to Atlantic City. He was active with the Linover Association and enjoyed helping out his neighbors. Charles cared very deeply for his wife, his family and his country.
