Prison is a horrible place. God protected me mentally, Physically, Spiritually and emotionally and I made it out after 17 1/2 years. I am a miracle of God's greatness, to come from where I've come from, to go thru all that I've gone thru and to be here still standing, sane, even-tempered, not angry, in good health, a church member and frequent goer, a small business owner and a man of good character, shows me that Matthew 19:26 still hold true "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible".


Vision's Property Cleaning and Lawn Care Services is my business, started a mere 14 days after my release from incarceration. Most of the time I'm a one-man show, cleaning attics, garages, apartments, homes, and yards. I also do painting, interior and exterior, small tree removal and light carpentry, garbage removal, mowing lawns, raking leaves and snow clearing. 


My full-time job is that of a union Millwright, assembling large machines, aligning pumps, fabricating metal parts and tools. It's amazing how I'm learning so much from the job and I'm loving it.


As of 2018, Charles is also now a published author and his book can be purchased by clicking on the Book Cover below.
