He came to us from Deerfield and majored at first in aeronautical engineering, but decided to switch to mechanical engineering and left Princeton to take some courses. He then returned and graduated with the Class of ’53 but wanted to be counted with us. He joined Charter and was on the bicker committee. He roomed with Billy Blalock, Bob McLean, and Quincey Lumsden.
After Navy service Charlie worked for AMF on missile development, and later for Bendix and for McCray-Quinn Associates. Enthusiastic about sailing, he belonged to the Los Angeles Yacht Club and once sailed across the Atlantic with friends. He sang with the choir of St. Peter’s-by-the-Sea Presbyterian Church for many years, and after retiring, he worked long and faithfully for Habitat For Humanity.
Charlie is survived by his wife, Jean; and three children, Steve, Sarah, and Fred. To them the class sends condolences with our thanks for Charlie’s Navy service to our country.
