Charlie was a faithful friend and a man whose heart desired God above all others. He was an inspiration to many - one who held many roles - with integrity, dignity, respecting and valuing those he worked alongside of.

Remembering all he accomplished and in spite of his grief and loss of his dear wife and the many struggles with health and other issues, he climbed onward, continually focusing and running the race set before him; passionately.

He has now ceased his earthly activity resting in His Lord and Savior's love - eternal peace and blessed union. He has rejoined his wife in death in their spiritual union together - forever home in Glory.
