  1. Susie, what a sweet man he was…he used to always joke with me whenever he would bring out our \always\” emergency travel tickets to Atlas P.

    I thought of him and a song ran through my head

  2. Charlie was a great guy. I met him years before he married Violet, at City Park Golf Course. He always had a smile on his face and hit the ball straight as an arrow. I was so happy for him and Vi (my semi-aunt; and my mother’s best friend) when I heard they were married. Charlie will be missed by all of us. I wish I would have been able to visit with him and the family more. All our love goes out to everyone touched by Charlie.
