Charlie left the Eastern Shore, Virginia at an early age and moved to Florida. In the 90s, he returned to the Eastern Shore and moved the love of his life, Mary Morris. They were joined in Holy Matrimony in 2000.
Charlie's passion was working on the farm, but he had some more passions: cooking and working on cars. He always was the life of the party and would laugh at any party. Charlie worked for Newman farm for over 17 years.
His family was his everything. The apple of his eye was his wife, Mary. There wasn't anything that she asked for that he didn't make a way to get. On his last days, as his health began to fail, the doctor asked him to stop working. However, he still tried to work until he just couldn't anymore. The love of his family was his motivation.
