  1. Mr Charlie was someone I admired my whole life. Growing up with him as a neighbor was a treat. He was a good one.

  2. I only knew him through the eyes of his son Mark. The stories he told of his wonderful childhood and the love he had for his parents. I can’t imagine the pain mark and his mother are going thru. Sending my Love to the whole family.
