  4. Only one word can describe Charlie to me, WONDERFUL. He was truly a wonderful man. I enjoyed all my time working with him all those years in the kitchen making meatballs and sauce for spaghetti supper and all the other volunteer work we did together with the KoC. Charlie was a true leader who led by example. I enjoyed being in his company. Be blessed knowing his work is done and he is in heaven today.
    RIP my friend you will be missed. Michael Conner

  5. What a wonderful picture of a wonderful man. Russ and I send our sympathy to Angie, our friends Charlie and Patricia, and the Family.
    I know you all have warm and wonderful memories of family times together because family was important to all of you. I’m certain he was met at the Pearly Gates by his second favorite female, Patty…a joyful celebration!.
    Please know we are thinking of you all,
    Russ and Kathy
