He had many careers and adventures, most notably in the mining industry working as far away as Columbia South America. He gained his Commercial Drivers License at the age when most people are retired (at age 69) and worked as an over-the-road truck-driver which he only stopped doing because he became incapacted with COVID-19.
Charles Harper is missed by his wife, an ex-wife, six children, grand-kids, extended family, and the many friends he made during his adventurous life.
