He was born September 5, 1931 in Bay City Michigan, the son of Floyd and Cornelia Green. He had an older brother Floyd Jr. and a younger sister Jean Ann. His family moved to the Hickory Corners area of Michigan where he went to high school at W. K. Kellogg Consolidated High School and then attended Michigan State University and then graduated from The University of Michigan. He majored in music at The University of Michigan and met his future wife Eunice Jane Knape there. Eunice was also a music major. They married and started life together in the state of Washington where Charles was stationed when he joined the army. He left the army as a lieutenant and moved to New Jersey to begin his career in show business in New York City. He had a wonderful tenor voice that he used in a wide variety of musical productions such as Broadway musicals, country music TV shows (The Jimmy Dean Show), opera, and commercial jingles. He had great success singing in industrial shows that were sponsored by large companies to help roll out new product lines. These shows were elaborate custom musicals written about the new products and their features. These shows would both excite and educate franchisers and sales personnel about what was new coming out, whether it was cars, appliances, or beverages. In 1968 he was asked by his father and brother to join the family Terminix business in southwestern Michigan. He agreed and the family moved to Kalamazoo. While building and expanding the Terminix business he also involved himself in community theater, singing in numerous musicals at the Kalamazoo Civic Auditorium, Opera in Grand Rapids and choir at The First Presbyterian Church.
