Charles and I went to school at High Bluff Grammar School for 7 years and then to High School at Young High School. He was always laughing and pulling tricks on us younger children but never mean. I can see him standing at the end of the bleachers at a football game, laughing with that silly grin he had. We lost touch when he joined the service and reconnected many years later at my oldest Daughters house for a cook-out. He and my son-in-law Doug Ward was related. Then my second daughter Deneise Jenkins ended up camping near his sister, Lisa and picked up their friendship from High School. It is such a small world we live in. Charles will be missed by family, High School Friends. Rest in Peace where you have no more physical issues.
