Charles will always be remembered for his love of sports. He was known as "coach" to quite a few young football and baseball players. He always found time to show and share his knowledge of these sports. In his later years, he had quite the passion for the game of horseshoes and bowling.
Charles served with the United States Navy from 1952-1956. He then began taking on the business world. He started by repairing computers for IBM and in different sales arenas. His finest achievement came in the banking business. He was a mortgage broker who became well trusted by those who worked with him. Because of his dedication and hard work throughout the years, he was able to retire at the age of 55. We are so proud of his accomplishments.
For the next 30 years, he moved from NJ to Pennsylvania and then back to NJ. He loved his time in PA where he would go for long walks with his dogs. He met friends that later became his bowling mates and when he had some down time, he took to doing crossword puzzles.
Charles A Maxwell...you'll never know Dad how much we miss you. You are loved, remembered and longed for always.
