Charlie also served with the Orleans County Civil Defense Auxiliary Police Department. He worked at the Farm & Feed, Holley Cold Storage, Albion Landfill, and he retired from Kodak.
Charlie was one of the founding members of Clarendon Fire Company, not only was he present at the first informal gatherings he was asked to take the minutes at their first meeting and served as the first treasurer in 1956 when they became chartered. More information could be found in “Images of Clarendon Past”. He served many years at the Fire Company.
Following Charles’ wishes, he chose to make an anatomical gift to the University of Rochester Medical Center, therefore there will not be a service scheduled at this time. A celebration of life will be planned by the family for a later date.
