Charles was a member of the City of Houma Police Department from February 5, 1962 to February 5, 1987 and retired as Chief of Police. He also served in the United States Air Force, where he met his wife Joan of 63 years. They were just a few weeks shy of 64 years on April 4th. Charles’ hobbies were playing golf with his sons, hunting and fishing with his friends. He enjoyed cooking, researching, and making preparations for anything and everything. He loved his family immensely and wanted them together often. He loved to travel and wanted vacations to be family filled, the more the merrier. He was a true believer of the value of God, family, and country. Charles had a fierce love of God and a strong conviction with his Catholic faith. He was an active member of Maria Immacolata in Houma and a member of the ACTS Catholic based men’s retreat. He attended the Mens ACTS retreat of Maria Immacolata with his grandson Kagan. Charlie, as most called him, definitely stood up for what he believed in. He loved and was loved by his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. A valued man, that will be missed by all. But this is not prepared us with your guidance and direction to continue here on Earth…until we meet again.
