Charles was a loving and devoted father, grandfather, brother and friend. Charles loved the outdoors; hunting, fishing, camping, and spending quality time with his family. Charles never seemed to meet a stranger, and was always there to lend a helping hand no matter the situation.

If you ever met “Lebeaux”, he would leave an everlasting impression on your life. No matter the troubles that may have arose, he always smiled and faced them head on without hesitation. Heaven gained one of the most precious angels; and he will be missed dearly by all that knew him.
