Biography
In 1915, he was about two years of age when his mother died. Served in the 3-Cs camp during his 20's. He was 6 years of age during 1920 census. His stepmother was Alice Squires. April 19, 1937, married Dorothy France at St. Martha's Rectory, Akron. Had a brother Ralph and a sister Ruth. He had 11 children by Dorothy France.

From a personal interview with Mom( Mrs. Dorothy Howe) , we have learned that Dad ( Charles) when he was young man was into exercising and body building. He was a boxer during this time and went by the name "Sammy" or "Red" . He worked on the WPA and help support his sister Ruth after her husband had died. After his dad married Alice Squires, Charles basically had to support himself with what ever needs he had. He sold papers for the Akron Times Press and the Akron Beacon Journal and this is how he put himself through school.

It was not uncommon for him to run from 329 Stow Street, Cuyahoga Falls where he lived to Monroe Falls or even to his Uncle Charlie's farm in Richfield, Ohio. He and Dorothy were acquainted with one another but did not officially date until she was about 17. Charles worked many jobs during his life including Falls Machine were he earned $.13/hr. For the most part Charles was a self made man. When the great depression struck mom can remember how dad took his high school diploma with him everywhere he went to look for work. Dad became a machinist by trade and ended up working for Delker Mfg., Cleveland, Ohio in 1958 and where he retired from in 1980.

From James R. Howe we learn that dad's boxing name was "Kid-K.O.". Jim learned this from Lloyd Grant. "Sammy" and "Red" were nick names for dad. Dad had red hair hence the nickname "Red".
