    Charlie was born in Saskatoon, SK and grew up on a farm near Richard, SK. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Engineers in 1940 and was a sapper with Number 1 Road Construction Company throughout the war. He served in Canada, the United Kingdom, and France. It was in France where he suffered a leg injury which impacted him for the remainder of his life. After demobilization Charlie went to work for Henry Birks & Sons in Saskatoon and spent the remainder of his career working for them.
