After graduation Charles went into the Air Force where he served with the Canine Corp. Upon leaving the Air Force, he lived with his sister, JoAnn, before trying the FBI. Charles was with the FBI in Washington, DC before returning to Omaha. He then joined the Army where he was with the Military Police. Charles served in Guam during the Vietnam War.
Upon his discharge from the Army, he returned to Omaha where he began working as a security guard at Omaha University (now University of Nebraska at Omaha) for 40+ years.
One thing all the nieces and nephews will always remember is the orange minibus! The Omaha nieces and nephews remember loading up in the orange bus to take a trip to Fremont, Nebraska to see family. The Fremont nieces and nephews remember seeing the bus pulling up into Fremont and Charlie taking them fishing at the State Lakes. If it was at all possible, he would have kept that orange bus forever! Charlie would also bring Grandma to Fremont, once a week, on his day off to visit with family in Fremont.
Charlie is survived by his sister, Sally Cavanaugh (Jack-deceased); sister, JoAnn Gibbons (Ralph) of Fremont, NE; brother, Marvin (Judy-deceased) of Idaho; many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; and sister, Pat Roberson of Omaha, NE.

I have many great memories working with Charlie at UNO. He will be missed.
