Charlie spent his childhood roaming the family ranch in the Castle Rock community near Colstrip. Many hours were spent with his brother, Mike, catching salamanders and turtles, riding Shorty, the Shetland pony, and climbing the Rock. As he got older, he was a great help to his parents doing cow work and farm work. Once Charlie earned his driver’s license, he became a proficient truck driver hauling grain at wheat harvest for his dad and Uncle Jim. Through the years, Charlie enjoyed roping at the Colstrip Roping Club. Charlie will be greatly missed by his family, cousins and special friends in the Castle Rock community.
