In 1983, he started his first entrepreneurial endeavor as a vendor selling houseplants at local markets.  After a short time in the houseplant business, he started a new company, Aaron Septic Services. His dream of a family business was realized when, for many years, he was assisted in his business by both of his sons and his wife. Charlie managed Aaron Septic until his passing.

During his lifetime, Charlie was a gregarious person, committed to his success. He was an avid hunter who enjoyed fishing and being outdoors.  Charlie met the Lord as an adult, leading many friends, family, co-workers and strangers in the sinner’s prayer.  He will no doubt, be missed and remembered by many people.
