Charles joined the U. S. Army Air Corps in 1943, serving courageously in World War II as a Supply Technician and earning his sharpshooter qualification. After returning home, he worked for the Worcester Railroad for 6 years. In 1952 he founded the Moulton Insurance Agency and shortly after opened Moulton Real Estate which later became Century 21 Moulton Real Estate. Charles radiated the true spirit of entrepreneurship.
Charlie was known for his smile, wave and the twinkle in his eye. He loved his family and enjoyed their daily visits. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved fishing, hunting, cutting wood and believed in working hard. He shared his passion with his children and grandchildren by being the best role model and teacher he could.
He was a member of All Saints Church and very active in the community.

As his 1942 Ware High School yearbook said, "Charlie is an outstanding gift to the Rod & Gun Club. Long may he fish and hunt.".
