I had the privilege of working with Charlie at the Danbury Area Computer Society (DACS). We were both on the DACS Board of Directors while I was Treasurer. Note that Charlie had been Treasurer for very many years previously. I thoroughly enjoyed both working with Charlie and just sharing a conversation. I am sad to learn of his passing and miss our times together. Bert

Our thoughts and condolences are with Aunt Marie, Bob, Janet, and Nancy and their families and friends.
I always felt uncle Charlie reminded me most of grandpa Bovaird. Very smart, kind, and when he spoke you listened. The memories I have are all positive and bring a smile to my face.
As time goes by and memories flood in, our hope is that the smiles replace the tears ❤️.
-all our love,

Shannon and Jim Kerth
