Charles A. DeJonghe was born on Jan. 6, 1923, to Maurice and Angela (Brouckaert) in Detroit. Charles lost his mother when he was only six months old. While carrying her infant son Charles in her arms, Angela tripped, kept her arms around Charles to protect him from the fall, hit the floor and received minor cuts to her arm from the fall. Later, according to the Detroit newspaper, she had died from lockjaw caused by infection and not having a tetanus shot.
