Charles was a fun loving guy who knew no stranger. His love for food was what connected him to many people. After meeting Charles, a conversation about food was most likely going to occur. Charles loved to clean, go on many walks, and check the mail daily. Charles also volunteered & shopped for a local food pantry every week. He loved attending church in Topeka, especially during communion. Charles touched a lot of people’s hearts with his personality and those deep blue eyes. He is going to be missed by his extended family and friends. Charles had a huge impact on the Sales family and he will forever be in our memory.
