He loved the farming, the work and all the people he met over the years in the strawberry field. Charlies past times included hunting, fishing and watching the Selkirk Steelers Hockey Team. He rarely missed an opening day of fishing season or attending a Steelers home game. He also enjoyed meeting the gang for coffee at the Mall.
