Born and raised in South Baltimore, Mr. Burkhardt attended city public schools. For more than 40 years until retiring in 2004 on a medical disability, he worked as a construction worker.
"He retired from Danella Corp.," said his daughter, Kelly Latham Pizarro of Pasadena. "His nickname was 'Good Time Charlie.'"
Mr. Burkhardt was an avid Ravens fan. He also enjoyed fishing and crabbing.
"He enjoyed watching his grandchildren's sporting events and spending time with his family," said his daughter.
A viewing will be held from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday followed by services at the Gregory J. Gonce Funeral Home, 165 Riviera Drive, Pasadena.
In addition to his daughter, Mr. Burkhardt is survived by a son, Charles H. Burkhardt III of Glen Burnie; two sisters, Darlene Harvey and Marilyn Sager, both of Glen Burnie; and two grandchildren. His marriage to the former Gayle Manning ended in divorce.
