He moved to Hawaii as a teenager where he attended Konawaena High and graduated.

Through his marriage he gained Brother-in-Laws and Sister-in-Laws and all of their amazing children located throughout California and surroundings states.
Charles had hobbies throughout his life. He loved “wrenching” on cars, decades of soccer playing (Old Saturday Stumblers Soccer League in Fremont) both co-ed and mens.  Played Rugby and carried a love for the “All Blacks,” like son Kimo.
Our Father is a testament to what it means to be truly Loved.  His great gifting ways, glowing smile, and kindred laughter will be missed by many.
May we all ravish in Him resting peacefully – Over the Rainbow.
