Charles was a self-made man that was well known for his ability to speak Cajun French which proved to be a valuable asset in his long career as a salesman and Landman.  He was a parishioner of St. Louis Catholic Church. He served as an officer in the US National Guard. He was an active member of the Masonic Lodge, Eastern Star, Houma Kiwanis, Knights of Columbus, Key Club, Lions Club, and Jaycees.  He enjoyed gardening, fishing, hunting, dancing, playing music, cooking, carpentry, playing cards, playing golf, and riding his Harley. He was very civic oriented, and loved his home town of Houma, LA.  He was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather.  He will be dearly missed by all whose hearts he touched.

Chauvin Funeral Home is honored to serve the Songe family.
