Charles was the devoted son of the late Frank and Mildred Nola. He was the beloved husband of Michelina (nee Yaccarino) for 68 years. He was the loving father of Frank Nola and his wife Patty, Carol Nola and Marianne DiFiore and her husband John.

In 1977, he was promoted to Lieutenant and later retired in 1986 from Engine 162. Charles was very involved with sports in the Staten Island community. Specifically, he was the baseball commissioner for the Blessed Sacrament Titan League. He also coached, umpired and refereed for the Staten Island Boys Football League, Mid Island Babe Ruth Baseball League and the CYO Basketball League. One of his most proud moments had to be in 1961 when Charles coached his football team, the Staten Island Amusement Machine and took them to Montreal, Canada, to compete in the championship game. As he got older, Charles truly enjoyed watching his grandchildren participate in sporting events, always supporting them and cheering them on. In his spare time, he loved taking trips to Atlantic City and vacationing with his friends.
