My deepest sympathies to the family.
I am a retired Knights of Columbus insurance agent. He was very instrumental in helping me guide the council's insurance program. My prayers are with him, his family, and all brother members who I know will miss him.

I have loved you, Uncle Curtis, since I was a baby. I cherish so many special memories in my mind and heart of the amazing times our families shared. You and Aunt Ethel have been the most faithful, loving, and loyal friends our parents could ever have been blessed with. May God reward your love of family and friends and your loving service to others with eternal life and joy in His presence and may Our Lord, Our blessed Mother Mary, and all the angels and saints rejoice with you until the day we are together again.

If there was ever a man more loved, cherished, & admired, it was you. What a testament it is to live such a life that you were not only a dad, but a hero to all of your sons, & the most loving husband to your wife. Though I never got to know you as well as I had hoped, I feel like I did. There have been so many stories told that bring a smile, but I only have to look as far as into the eyes & hearts of Brian and his sons to know what an influence you have made & what a tremendous legacy you leave behind. You will continue to live on through them... Through all your children.... And we are all made better by that. It is for these reasons I want to say thank you. You are so deeply missed, but I also know you have blessed heaven with your presence & will be looking down on them.

My father and mother gave me the greatest gift a child could ever receive. I was named after my father and carry the name with pride and dignity. Dad was the smartest and most admirable man I've ever known. He worked hard all his life to provide a good life for his family. He will be remembered by all whose lives he touched both in his social and personal life. It is with a heavy heart I let him go, but I know he is in good hands with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I love you Dad and I miss you more each passing second. Jaylene, William and I always keep your memory close to our hearts.
Your loving son, daughter-in-law, and grandson.
Curtis, Jr. Jaylene and William Charrier
