Charles Matthew Lincoln, son of Alfred and Ethel (Schwartz) Lincoln, was born June 13, 1949 at his home in rural Kensington, Minnesota. Charles lived in rural Kensington his entire life, where he attended District 81 country school, and graduated from Kensington High School. After graduating, he enlisted in the Army for a short period of time. He worked for area farmers for a few years. When his family moved to Farwell, Charles continued to work for farmers. He enjoyed helping people. He found a job delivering the weekly paper for Farwell, and got to know the town. He also mowed lawns and cut wood for people; as well as other jobs. Charles worked at the gas station and later worked for B & S Elevator in Farwell for 27 years. Everyone in the farming community liked coming to B & S because Charles was friendly and talked about politics and the Minnesota Twins. When his health failed, Charles became a resident of the Minnewaska Lutheran Home in Starbuck where he continued to live until the time of his death.
Charles enjoyed word search puzzles, watching game shows, especially the Price is Right, and visiting with people.
