People like Charles are few. He was truly easy to like. Charles influenced my path in life with his generosity and easy going manner. As I sit in my shop, that he was instrumental in building, I think of him often. He will truly be missed.

I have know Charles for most of my life.
Yet a few years ago while visiting Charles and Jean we were talking and he wanted me to tell him how we were related. So I explained that his Dad and my Grandmother were brother and sister! Then we had the connection, and lots of other conversations. Charles was a great man, He loved his family deeply! He talked of his Daughter Debbie and Son inlaw Dave , and his Daughter in law Dawn, and all of his grandchildren with such love and admiration! I believe along with Jean they were the light of his life!
