In May of 2006 he and Sharon were separated and later divorced.

Charlie and Diane Sickels were married on July 16, 2010. At this time he inherited more kids, Suzi Schaefer, Karen Shannon, and Nancy Elmer.

Charlie enjoyed tractors, He and Diane were members of the Clarke County Old Iron and Nebraska Antique Farming Association. They thoroughly enjoyed the tractor drives not only in Iowa but also in Nebraska. The favorite ones are the ones going across Nebraska border to border. Some of his best friends are his extended tractor family from "out there".

Charlie lost his battle with cancer on May 4, 2016. He was preceded in death by his grandparents; parents; sister, Marcia Warham; son, Travis.
