He was a 1949 graduate of Cranberry High School. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, and was stationed in Germany. He was honorably discharged on October 8, 1953.

Charlie enjoyed doing yard work, cutting firewood, fishing, woodworking, and building beautiful furniture for his family members.

Mr. Lineman was a self-employed truck driver for many years, before going to work at Seneca Hardwood Lumber Company in Cranberry, from where he retired in 1993.

He was married on September 17, 1955 at the Grace E.C. Church in Ninevah to the former Susan O’Neil, and she survives.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Thomas Lineman, and Theodore Lineman and his wife, Roxie.
