July 27,2011 To Becki&family, We were truly sorry to hear of Charlie's passing away. I always admired Charlie's electrical knowledge and his innovative mind. We had some great talks and good times over the years. He was just one super guy. I also miss our friendly old neighorhood of the 60's & 70's. Say Hi to Steve&Beth from us. Take Care and God Bless You, Dick&Lora Litzenberg

Dear Becki, We were so saddened to hear of Chuck's passing and we extend our heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. We are unable to attend the service as our grandkids are here with us, but we wanted you to know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Chuck had such a happy personality and love of life. We remember his love of cooking and hospitality, appreciated his patriotism and enjoyed his beautiful display of American Flags. God Bless you and your family during this difficult time. - Gary & Dianne Knight

Becky & Family, I am so sorry for your loss of an exceptional husband, father and best friend. You were all blessed as a family. It is wonderful that you were able to go to West Virginia and relive old times while he was feeling better. What a great lasting memory of a family activity. Hope to see you soon - Donnie and Chuck are probably telling stories in heaven now.

Take care. My prayers are with each of you.
