To my very best friend in High School. We did it our way and got in alot of trouble,but we had fun! How about that High School graduation trip to Florida in a VW car when the back wheel came off and passed us down the street.

Charlie, I have so many good memories of you. You'll always have a place in my heart. God bless you and the Sticher family.

I worked with Charlie 30+ years at UGA. He was a true friend and was always so much fun to be around. We had some wonderful times playing softball together. Charlie will be missed indeed by so many of us. I am so sorry Judy and I were unable to attend the services. May you rest in peace and may your family find comfort and peace.

Deepest Sympathy to your family in your time of loss. I knew Charlie when he worked at the Computer Center. He was always a great friend and lover of UGA football.

He shared with me by giving me a copy of the 1980-81 Georgia media guide with Herschel Walker on the cover.

May you rest in peace Charlie and may your family find comfort in all the memories.
