Charles was a good friend of mine when we were in junior college at GMC in 1966 and 1967. We also worked together as attendants at the Georgia Veterans Home at that time, in order to fund our college expenses. We were working 40 hours a week there, while going to GMC full time. Looking back, I don't see how we were able to do that.
I enjoyed my many conversations with Charles, because he was so intelligent and well-read, and had such a wide variety of interests and talents.
I recall that he was an excellent photographer, and had some amazing photos that he took in Vietnam.
His insights on the situation in Vietnam, based on his first-hand experience there, were invaluable to me.
Charles was
...also an accomplished artist.
Above all, he was a real gentleman and all-around good guy.
