Charles was born August 1st, 1948, in Klamath Falls, Oregon to Paul and Lenore Eden. After graduating from Southern Oregon College in 1970, he moved back to Klamath Falls until leaving for a brief stint in North Carolina in 1982. In 1985 he moved to Eugene which he would call home for the remainder of his life.
He began his long career with Columbia Forest Products shortly after graduating college. When he moved to Eugene he went to work for States Industries, but eventually returned to Columbia Forest Products from where he retired in 2015. He loved his job as Sales Manager, enjoyed traveling for work and considered his colleagues friends. Through the years his hobbies included golfing, hunting, fishing, playing cribbage, camping at Long Creek, and feeding his granddogs Bailey and Belle. Charles had a fantastic sense of humor which he generously passed along to his 3 kids. He was an avid fan and supporter of all University of Oregon sports and multi-decade holder of season football and basketball tickets. Go Ducks!
