Charles served in the United States Coast Guard from 1941 - 1946. He retired as the assistant credit manager with Sears Roebuck and Company. He volunteered his services to the Democratic party of New Mexico for the past 15 years. He was a long time member of the Northeast Church of Christ in Albuquerque.
