Charlie grew up in Melrose, MA, graduating from Melrose High School. He
served in the Army; Fort Devons MA. He married the love of his life,
Barbara and they started a family. They moved from Melrose to Center
Barnstead in 1972; into their "lake house". They enjoyed many days with
family and friends at the lake, lots of boat rides, water skiing and
tubing and so much fishing. Snow mobile rides. Playing cards, bon
fires and shooting his cannon, he loved summer!
After retiring from Raytheon, he had more time to spend wood-working,
creating a lot of special gifts for young and old alike. Charlie loved
spending "retired" time in Florida, exploring the state, hanging out
with friends and especially spending time at Disney...riding the rides,
soaking up the sunshine. Charlie enjoyed spending time with his Masonic
Brothers far and wide, past master of Corinthian Lodge, Pittsfield NH.
Buppie will be missed by all who knew and loved him, his kind smile and
HUGE sense of humor. One of a kind.
