Charlie, a master of the suture, left hockey when the Chiefs were disbanded.

Like many other Chiefs' players, he left hockey to pursue acting. After changing his name to Matthew Cowles, he had a successful career on TV and in film.

He dabbled in philosophy throughout his life, a passion he was introduced to by his friend, Dave "Killer" Carlson.
