They had three daughters, Carol, Leigh and Christie and settled in Axton, VA. Charlie was a master wood craftsman with an unmatched work ethic and an avid farmer in his free time. He also loved and took care of his family. In the late 80’s Charlie and his wife started their own furniture business, “Charlie’s Frames”. They build it from the ground up and were in business until 2006. Charlie was always willing to help anyone in need and never met a stranger.
