Remember Charlie very well from the early 70's at St Pius X and the special time everyone had at his parents house as his family made fresh tamales by the dozens‼️ A very good guy from a very solid family and will surely be missed by all. Rest In Peace.

Prayers and Gods comfort to the entire Gurrola family. Charlie was such a great man to be around. Always positive, happy, thankful, and downright funny! He had a knack for making my day always a better one. I was blessed to know him and he will be missed by many.

The first time our granddaughter, Oe, and Kyle introduced us to Tami and Charlie we fell in love with them and welcomed them into our family. The amazing thing about Charlie was that he always made us feel that being with us was the most important thing he had to do. We enjoyed the times spent in our home and hope that Tami will visit us often. Our prayer is that all of the happy memories you all shared together will soon begin to fill the enormous hole in your hearts. Be assured that your whole family will be in our hearts and in our prayers!! Love, Mary Ann and Jack
