In his life Charles has done many things including serving his country in the U.S. Navy, traveling the US as a truck driver, being a Master Mason and fulfilling his lifelong dream of becoming a teacher filling the hearts and minds of youth to bring a better tomorrow. Among his teaching accomplishments include his involvement in bringing the MESA- math, engineering, science and art program to the Las Cruces Schools and the Thank A Cop Campaign.
Those who had the pleasure to meet Charles know he was a God fearing man who lived life by his own terms. He was an advocate for Veterans through the group Ride For Vets, Combat Vets Association and felt most at peace riding his motorcycle.
His love of riding motorcycle and goal to reach all across the US, will be continued by his family and friends in many rides to come. Charles will be cremated and his remains will be scattered by his loved ones.
One last ride, one last run, as he is welcomed to Heaven greeted with open arms by ones loved and lost to us. Never alone, never wanting, but at peace and always in our hearts.
