(Occupation) Stationary Engineer.

(Noted) Aunt Bonnie said Grandpa Charles
played Basketball in High School and was
somewhat of a star player back in his day.
And, that that's how my grandparents met,
was through their love for basketball, and,
how Grandpa Charles would watch Grandma
Zola play basketball, because he thought
she was really good. Grandpa Charles also
enjoyed remodeling and painting old pieces
of antique furniture, and would sell it.
Plus, he also enjoyed growing a garden, too.
Cousin Stephanie said Grandpa Charles loved
picking up cute little rabbits in the field and
would then take them to show the grand-
children and let them pet them... Awe, how
adorable... :)
