Mr. Cassady was one of our Dad's (Joe Sherrill's) dearest friends. Besides seeing each other at Duke Power during the week, they saw each other regularly at St. Andrews. It was a rare Sunday we did not see the two of them laughing and talking with each other outside the Narthex between Sunday School and Worship Service. He had the most joyous, contagious laugh and they always seemed to find something to laugh about together. I know that his friendship meant so much to Daddy through the years. It meant so much to my sisters and me that he came up to both of their funeral services. The song 'Good, Good Father' which was sung so beautifully today came out around the time we lost our Dad and we have always felt it was his song. Sounds like they were two of a kind in so many ways. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers. In His Love, Linda Thompson

Charles was a friend and fellow Duke employee--he loved his family, friends, and life...while we will miss him on earth, his jokes, blessings, tales, and love will be in constant demand--at his next life in Heaven. His family and friends are blessed to have lived with him for many years..Thanks be to God!!!

Just the sweetest man that ever lived! So precious. what fond memories we have of the Duke Powerful Retiree trips. He loved his grits and did not like to be rushed! Wonderful memories of working with him at the Wells Fargo, and all the other names, Golf tournaments. We had so much fun. You will not find many "Paw Paws" that will take his granddaughters on a bus trip to NY and all of them sleep in the same room! He was just the best and we will miss him. Love and sympathy to all of the family. Anne & Tommy Miller

I was so sad to hear of your dad’s passing. I never saw him when he wasn’t smiling and laughing. He was such a great friend to my dad (Joe Sherrill). I’ll never forget the first time I heard Daddy call him “Hoppy”. It was outside church and I asked Daddy if he had a limp or something and that was my introduction to “Hopalong Cassidy.”☺️ Mr. Cassady was such a special person. Please know that you and your families are in our prayers. In Christ, Judy Sherrill Sigmon
