From the moment I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie, and by extension the Elwin Family, I always found him a kind man, with whom we shared stories of our personal lives as well as we enjoyed during the different family parties and the performances as grandparents of our grandchildren.
Those we love, don’t go away. They walk beside us everyday unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.

I called you Unc and I Iooked up to the man you were. You helped shape the man I became in so many different ways.
We will say our goodbyes to you today but I will NEVER FORGET who you were to me.
Rest easy Uncle Charlie,
George and family

I have known Charlie most of my life. It’s hard to believe Charlie and my sister Carrie married 47 years ago … My where does the time go. Together they had 3 beautiful children (Dara, Jessica and Lisa) and 7 beautiful grandchildren (Ava, Oliver, Blake, Kellan, Mason, Avery and Quinn). Charlie loved his family very much and they all loved him right back. Charlie was a good man who was very hard-working, caring and kind. He was a great husband, father and grandfather. He will be truly missed by all, but we have to try and remember that Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal, but love leaves a memory no one can steal. May You Rest In Peace Charlie…I will miss you forever!

I will always remember Charlie as a beautiful person one is proud to meet and be around, Proud of being a Veteran and a Marine. We may didn’t see each other too many times but the few times we shared family reunions it was just enough to value how a great man Charlie was.
