Charlie worked as a Heath Service Technician for 35 years until his retirement in 2002. Charlie had deep interests in both photography and electronics. He had a passion for taking pictures and was known for always having his camera ready to capture smiling faces at every event. Charlie used his skills in photography to do weddings, personal portraits, local school and Pioneer School pictures maintaining a studio in Milledgeville for many years. He also worked in the sound departments for Circuit and District conventions for many years both in English and assisting in Spanish.
