He was born in Jamestown, ND on October 5, 1962, to Charles K. and Marian F. (Heathcote) Bangs. He moved with his family to the Fergus Falls area in 1963 and he remained a resident of Fergus Falls the rest of his life. He attended school in Fergus Falls and earned his GED. In 1981, he and Lynn Jensen became the proud parents of a son, Mat Jensen. Charles grew up on Long Lake and loved fishing, boating, skiing, and getting together with family and friends.
