Charles was born on September 25, 1939 to Roy and Mable (Hubbard) Arnburg in Casey, Iowa. He grew up in Adair until the age of 5 when the family moved to Redfield. He attended Redfield schools and graduated from Redfield High School with the class of 1957. On February 14, 1959 he was united in marriage to Marilyn Toler at the Redfield United Methodist Church. To this union three children were born: Rhonda, Lori and Stephan. The family made their home in Redfield where Charles lived the rest of his life.

Charles worked for the Co-Op in Redfield and Waukee and Farm Services in Redfield and Adel building grain bins and driving the fuel tank truck. Following his retirement, he drove the WCV school bus for 18 years a job he thoroughly enjoyed. He was also part owner of the Redfield Locker. Charles was an active member in the town of Redfield serving on the Fire Department, EMS, Lions Club as District Governor, Old Settler’s Board and the WCV Booster Club. He was a longtime member of the Redfield United Methodist Church. In his spare time he enjoyed gardening and working in the yard. Most of all, he treasured time he was able to spend with the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren attending all of their sports and activities.
