As a child, he received a small projector for Christmas and that started his lifelong passion for film, television and especially classic animation. Before there was VHS, he would entertain family and friends with rented Super 8 movies. Going to his home for these events are cherished memories for all who had the pleasure to be invited. Good food and laughter were the theme always. His enthusiasm was infectious, and you couldn't help but be caught up in it. Charles was married to his wife Mercy for over 20 years. Theirs was a very close and loving relationship. You seldom saw one without the other. She was always supportive of everything he did, and it showed in the life they built together. They had many wonderful adventures both in the states and her native Philippines. They traveled there frequently, and Charles was a welcome part of Mercy's extended family. Charles was very proud of Mercy and often stated how much he appreciated her devotion, love, and of course, her cooking. Charles was loved dearly by his sons Ryan and Eddie. They will forever be grateful for his support and love in times of success and challenge. He also passed on his appreciation for music and film to them. Charles was very proud of his sons and expressed that pride to his family and friends often. They will always remember him with love, thanks and laughter.
