Charles greatest pleasure was spending time with his grandkids and great grandkids. Charles enjoyed fishing which he did on a regular basis with family throughout his life. He had a love for the steel guitar and hand built numerous and played often. Charles founded Andrews Machine Works which specialized in precision and close tolerance work, people and companies came from all over to retain his services. His ingenuity and determination were exemplary in everything he did. Pop never met a stranger and was the consummate picker always with the intention of making people laugh and you could always get him to do a little dance for you or to make the sound of the old steam train horn.
