We've always enjoyed seeing Uncle Charles and Aunt Peggy's family over the years at our Granparent's house in Cadmus, Ohio. We've had many good memories of him. Uncle Charles would always arrange a hayride for us when we were younger so we could have a good time . He was always so thoughtful and always made us feel important. We always enjoyed listening to his stories and we will miss him terribly. I'm glad we were able to see him at Aunt Lucille's reunion and our cousin Kristy's wedding. I'm sure he is having fun traveling around heaven. With Sympathy, Greg, Debbie, Ben & Lindsay Lachowsky from Johnstown, Ohio

My Uncle Charles was debanaire, a man that was respected, admired, and had the great ability to communicate with people in all walks of life. He made us all feel that he cared for us and that we were very important to him. He was a humble man who remembered where he came from. Above all, he loved Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. You will be sadly missed "lazybones"(my childhood nickname for him) Until we meet again. Much love and sincerest condolences to Aunt Peggy, Kelli, Kerri and families.
