Charles was born April 4, 1928, and grew up in Ventura, CA. He proudly served his country in the US Air Force. He later worked in Oxnard, CA, as a supervisor for the General Telephone Company for 28 years before retiring to Bend, OR, in 1978. He and Jean, along with their son, were owner/operators of Bettencourt Pumps for several years here in Central Oregon.
Charles enjoyed his family, taking motorhome trips with Jean, keeping his yards in tip-top shape, and raising several boxer puppies.
At his request, no service will be held; however, the family suggests memorials be made in his honor to any of the Central Oregon Humane Society Shelters.
