Charles was the oldest of two sons. Moved to Akron from Tarentum about 1930. Graduated Buchtel Hight School on the west side of Akron.  Played the piano like a pro.  Was very social and handy with a hammer.  When I was a small child, he bought a garage from Rose Ave in Akron. He had a new basement dug up and with the four walls of that garage, he added a bedroom, dinning room and an office. He also raised the roof on the attic to make a dormatory for his five sons.  

He was very active with the American Legion and was at the time of his death, the 10th District Commander in Ohio.  He was well liked and was active in the church choir.  

 His funeral was held on July 4. The most perfect date for my patriotic dad.  His funeral was also the largest the town had every seen.  

He and mom were very active with kids and adults though not their children.  They were never home!
