Charlie Brunner is an electrician for Fluor-BWXT and has been on the PORTS Site for nearly 46 years. The majority of that time has been in the X-333, or what he likes to call “the Big House”.

Charlie started his career at PORTS in 1975, following high school graduation and a stint in the Naval Reserve. The Stockdale native is part of three generations who have worked at the site, his father worked here from 1954 to 1994, and he currently works on a crew with his son Steve and his brother John. Not only does Charlie and his son work together, they farm together.

“Our farm has been in our family for nearly a 100 years,” said Charlie.

In addition to farming, Charlie is well-known for his extraordinary woodworking skills. He often donates the three foot long wooden semi-trucks to local charities to help them raise money.  He is also a member of the Stockdale Fire Department, volunteering for the past 41 years and serving as chief for the last 26 years.
